The day they tell you that you have cancer changes

everything. It was a call from the Dr, he was polite and

answered all the questions I could think of.  I wonder if

he prefers that to a face to face?  No anguished eyes, or

uncontrollable sobs.

I remember thinking how everything would change, and

how utterly inconvenient it was.

Perhaps I am pragmatic, perhaps numb.  I had always

always assumed that I would be the one to take care of my

wife in our old age, and I hate that this burden may fall

upon her.

Share your thoughts, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
