My friend and colleague rang me at 7:00 this morning in tears, and I'm trying to fight them back just now.
Some weeks ago she found a lump in her breast. She has had a mammogram, ultrasound, biopsies, and then 10 days ago they took her in for a small operation to remove part of the lump. She has an appointment on Friday for the results.
She rang this morning because during the night she found another lump. I tried to reassure her. I've been talking to her all day although I really don't know what to say.
She'll either be feeling very much better by Friday afternoon, or she won't. I'll either be feeling very much better, or I won't. I've realised how very much I care about her.
