Just wanted to let you all know that I heard from my friend E. and she says (quoting Monty Python's Spamalot) "I'm not dead!" While she was in the hospital there was some confusion over what information got sent out to friends. Just goes to show how important it is to be clear when we communicate.
E. has the support of hospice care at home and continues to receive radiation for her tumor. I expect to visit with her late next week.
We will all die someday, and those of us with advanced cancer sooner than we expected, but I'm glad to report E. is still here.
