Here with my mom in the room after her procedure, her bile duct was blocked, they put a shunt in, and in the process found the Pancreatic cancer that has grown to cause a problem in the first place.
We can tell her just yet, i dont think its fair, to not tell her right away, rest of family is not in concurrence. ime a strait up guy who has had more than my share of close calls with the Angel of Death, he has my number, has had it for a long time, so Ime able to take news...
how to tell her? my family has a tendency to not want to give the bad news, so ime the lucky bastard usually tasked with doin this, again.
This isnt the long watch, yet, those long moments of silence as we await the Angels call. this is not the nock at the door, where we say wait a minute, as if to postpone the inevitable.
this is the dust coming up the drive, of someone who has to come around
how do you tell someone this?
you tell them the truth.
hugs to all my spiney family
