Learned about 2 deaths last week

One was not unexpected. Over 80, morbidly obese, diabetic, with phlebitis. On dialysis. Still driving herself last time I saw her, about a year and a half ago. Nice lady. I truly expected to visit with her again sometime in the next few months when I travel to Spokane to handle some of my brother's interests there. Heard the news from my ex, and I have no idea how she found out. That made it even worse.

The other was a former coworker from my days as a traveling consultant. 50's, recently widowed, diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He fought it for months, but it took him in mid-November. I had been getting regular text updates about his treatment, and they stopped, so I investigated.

Fuck cancer.

I'm so sorry to hear of your losses. Whether unexpected or sudden - it just plain stinks. These strange days make connecting and grieving that much more difficult on so many levels.

I'm sorry Trustedher.

Ugh. I learned about 2 friends being diagnosed this week. One is a dad of a 6 year old who’s colon cancer returned and is now stage 4. The other is the wife of a friend and she was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforma, which is the worst of the brain tumors.
100% agree. Fuck cancer.

(((((TH))))) Just something we read or hear, almost doesn't feel like it's real that they are gone. So hard that we cannot see them or gather to honor them.

A close female relative, like a sister to me, was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer. She will have a lumpectomy next week and the surgeon will check lymph nodes then too. The only sort-of encouraging news is that it is a very early stage and quite small. Watching the news and a bit concerned that they are starting to cancel surgeries in the area due to Covid cases being so high. Fuck Cancer. Fuck COVID.

My condolences on your losses.
