I've been back twice more to visit my friend who is ill with cancer. He's dealing with distinct and separate complications from his tumors and from his chemo. Things are intersecting poorly, but he is on the mend.

With my scans coming up in three weeks, this holds a lot of resonances for me. I am very sorry to see him in distress. I am very glad to see him improving. At a gut level, I get this experience of his.

As I said before, this is my cancer path and my treatment course. This could be me.

It's not, but it could be.

So much to think about.

I think there is a lot of power in knowing the possible end game of a disease like cancer. I have recently had a friend die of metastatic colon cancer. I can tell you more about his course of illness and his passing if you're curious at some point. (Although I'm not sure now is the right time for your to explore that, or if there is a right time. I will not volunteer this information ever.)

Right. It's a very different story from yours, too.

Good to hear that he's improving and good wishes to him. More good wishes to you, too.
