I just have to find out if it's just me or what. I have really close friends....the kind that want to share every detail of the day with you, who have all but dropped me altogether since finding out that my husband has cancer. And then there are people who I know and frankly just acquaintences who have all but offered a limb to help us out and check in with us. Last night, my 9 year old daughter's basketball coach who I have met once (she has only had 3 practices) offered to drive her to Boston on the weekends to spend them with us. She travels there to the national guard anyway. I was brought to tears. I try to rationalize that everyone reacts differently and that everyone has their own baggage with cancer....but it still bothers me. I rarely have anything to delegate when people ask how they can help.....but I so appreciate the thought and offer. It's times like this when you find out who really has your back and sometimes it is just plain shocking. Okay....just needed to vent.
