OK, this is kind of difficult to write, but I am going to anyway.
Constant readers of this blog may recall that both my mother and sister, last year, battled breast cancer. It was a difficult time for my family to the say the least.
Today, my youngest sister called to tell me that she had a biopsy done on a very small lump in her breast, and the doctor told her that it looked "ugly". While the "c word" was not uttered, it was implied. The removed lump will be tested, and she will find out next week what is what.
Of course, my sister is upset, but she's coping.
Isn't there some kind of law of averages? I mean what is the chance of a mother and both of her daughters developing breast cancer like this, and in such a fast space of time?
For the time being my sister will not be telling my mom. She is going to wait until she knows for sure what the test results reveal next week.
What was it that Roseanne Roseannadanna used to say? "It's always something".
