Friday and The Oncologist

Yesterday an old friend visited. We worked together on the oncology unit. Louise is a spiritual sole without the baggage of an organized religion. Her belief is at one with mine. It's all about how you treat others. She knows how I feel about religion so she was tentative about the cross she gifted me with yesterday. She has just returned from Costa Rica last week and this was a cross she had bought back with her. She was quick to explain it symbolizes hope and she wanted me to accept it on that premise. I love the kind of person Louise is. She made a trip to Machau Picau a few years ago and said it was the most peaceful feeling and a spiritual rejuvenation for her. That's Louise.

She called and asked if she could visit. After she left, the tears stopped. I went outside and washed my car. I pulled some clover for Bugsy and held her for a while and I was able to eat a couple spoons of the potato soup, my favorite,  the husband had cooked a few days ago.

Louise will meet us at the doctor's office at 1100 this  morning. The husband and daughter will be there too.

A slice of toast and a cup of coffee and then to the shower. Moving on...


  1. Louise sounds like just the kind of supportive friend you need at the moment.

    And I'm glad to hear you are eating!!


  2. Louise is so much like you Linda...and I appreciate both of you tremendously!

  3. Charlotte, you and your family are in my thoughts as you go through this journey. Hugs, Cathy
