    One of my good friends' grandma has got terminal cancer [​IMG]
    She told me today, it was a sad occasion.
    I tried to reassure her, but it doesn't seem like there's anything anyone can do for her as she's had it before.
    She told me she picked me to tell because I can make her laugh... I thought that was sweet of her. [​IMG]

    Sorry to hear that. The only thing you can do is, be there for your friend and make him laugh or have just an ear for him and listen. Prayers for everyone

    Thank you everyone,
    Neither of us pray much, but I could always give it a shot [​IMG]
    She's taking it pretty hard, I mostly just listen to her talking about her feelings, but it feels wrong if I can't think up a response. [​IMG]

    You don't need to have a response. Just being there for your friend is the very best of what you can do. You are a good friend!

    She seems fine now. She was devastated when she first found out... now, she's back to normal and I'm terrified to ask if things turned out okay in the end. [​IMG] In case you know she's trying to avoid the topic or something.

    Her other grandma's just had an accident.

    Broken pelvis.

    I take it she's pretty old, and I know absolutely NOTHING about medicine or cancer or illnesses....

    Bahh, I don't know what to say [​IMG]

    I agree. Sometimes, you don't need to say anything. A hug is worth a thousand words.
