Visiting a sick friend today...

Back in early 90s I met my friend through work and we became close friends. In two years she married one of our co-workers a really nice guy, good husband, excellent dad to their two daughters. Over the years I left that company, changed quiet a few jobs and even moved out of the city we all lived in. We kept in touch and stayed true friends.

They had some health problems mostly related with thyroid issues which I also have. However, lately the husband has been diagnosed with an early stage cancer. I am truly upset about this. Today, I am going to visit them and I am hoping to see him doing well. He has just started chemo and I do not know how many doses he will get. I am praying that he will fully recover...

  1. How sad. I have thyroid issues also and take meds for it and my Will had to have his destroyed with the nuclear pill. They are in my prayers

    1. Thank you! He seems to be taking it rather well. He has gone through one chemo and scheduled for another tomorrow. He will receive a total of 6 doses 21 days apart. I am praying that he will recover fully.
      BTW, I had my thyroid killed with the nuclear radioactive treatment back in 2000, too.

    1. Thanks Gill. He looked good and they are trying to play it down for the sake of their younger daughter. I am praying that he will be a survivor of this horrible disease. I am planning to visit them again within a few weeks. We had a good time together.
