I had done some research, and even reached out to my nephew in Pennsylvania, for advice.
I wanted my bff to get another "expert" opinion at the Carbone Cancer Center at the University of Wisconsin, but it was not to be. She got so sick on the way, they turned around and she went to our local cancer center and got an IV.
The next day we went to see her oncologist. I really don't doubt his ability, but just want the best for my friend. Listening to him and Linda talk, brought me out of my nightmare and into reality.
I don't like this.
I spoke to the nurse after. (my friend was getting something done and was going to go home with her husband).
I cried. I told the nurse how I have been through loss before. I told her I was afraid and just want what's best for my friend. I am still coming to terms with this.
Today, I took her to the hospital where she had same day surgery to get her port. Through that she will get her chemo. My sister also came up to the hospital, to see Linda, and to sit with me.
Linda is in fighting mode now. I think it is a great relief that the waiting is over, and now she can take action.
