I found this card some time ago. I thought it accurately summed up so many different parts of the cancer experience: the unsavory treatments, the impersonal medical research, and the subtle residue of victimization left with the patient. Of course, it also brilliantly captures the essence of cancer treatment: sometimes the cure makes you feel like you’re dying anyway. 🙂 I believe I bought every card on the rack & sent one to every cancer patient I knew.
Andrea, PunkRockMommy, is in a holding pattern right now with fresh scans, cryptic calls from the doctor’s staff and no answers or appointment until Friday. Keep her and Kelly in your prayers for a measure of peace until then.
In the meantime, keep your eyes open for a couple of lab geeks and a big fat suppository with Andrea’s name on it.
