My husband spills the beans so to speak yesterday and tells me my favorite aunt has cancer. my father told him. over a month ago, and asked my husband not to tell me, because the family doesnt want anyone to find out? gee thats kinda important. i am over come with sadness, that i cant call my cousins and my aunt. i dont even know what kind of cancer it is. she has always been a special aunt in my life. a little background.... my parents are divorced and this aunt (who has the cancer) was sooo close to my mother. so i want to naturally pick up the phone and call my mother and tell her. but i promised my husband i wouldnt. with cancer, i have heard, it can come and you could be gone in less than 2 weeks. then i feel i would have missed the chance to see her one more time. ill see my dad when he comes to the house tomorrow. should i mention it to him or wait for him to tell me?? this aunt is my fathers brothers wife. i dont have a big mouth, nor do i put tons of stuff up on facebook. i feel everyone should know...i dunno... privacy for them i suppose. i just found out yesterday and cant stop thinking about her. To make matters worse, yesterday while at work a co-worker who is very admired, told me she has throat cancer. her spirits are very high, i admire her. however, she has yet to tell her 2 children?? she is due for raditation pills some time in the next few days... she doesnt want to worry her children (who are in their 20's)) I wake up this morning, sip my coffee and feel so depressed and sad. I am thankful for my family, my kids , my husband. but had such a rough night sleeping, now i am getting a headacke. I am off to work in 40 minutes or so,,,, to a job (today i am working alone))) to a room (that i am in alone in))) gosh i only wish i could be busy. anyways, off i got to finish the coffee. good day everyone, hopefully y'all have a better day than me.
