Today was very sad for me. My dear friend, also named Gail, also a colon cancer survivor, diagnosed the same year as I was, passed away today. She had been in a hospice home for about a week and a half. I went to see her several times, and she was not able to really respond, but I wanted to see her and spend time with her family. I saw her last night, and I knew time was very short.
Gail joined our county's Relay For Life planning committee the same year I did, and we just clicked. I'm going to miss her, but I'm so glad she's no longer in pain.
I wrote a blog entry about her, called "Survivor's Guilt."
It can be found here;
Reading this, it sounds stilted, I think (my entry here, not the blog). Just kind of processing it all and wondering once again how I got so fortunate to have an early diagnosis.
