goddamn

Just, simply, heartbroken.

I think I wrote about her here before--my friend A. My friend from high school with whom I'd been writing a book until her husband was diagnosed with colon cancer earlier this year.

After nearly 9 months, countless chemo treatments, related illnesses, etc...I can barely even write this.They flew to Houston earlier this week for hernia surgery--and after being told that his cancer was receding, only to learn the opposite. It has spread. It is worse. It is most likely fatal.

Her email to us read, simply:

Itís with a shattered heart I write this.

We are home from MD A--. Hospice has been ordered and will start tomorrow at home.

Dr. E--- went over Davidís scans and symptoms with us for a very long time. The cancer has seeded into his abdomen and his liver is beginning to shut down. Thereís fluid in his lungs and around his belly...We are home. Please come over, call, send emails, texts and cards. But mostly, be here if you can. Bring musical instruments. Play with the lasers. Spin records. Make drinks at the bar. Enjoy the sunset. Soak in the hot tub.

Just be here.

I just can't even fathom. He's barely, what--43?.

God.damn.
