Do you remember the article I wrote about a family friend who has been recently diagnosed with cancer? It’s really sad that this is another young person with two young kids, who seem to be just waiting for his time. His case has been decided by a team of physicians and declared hopeless as far as treatment of his illness is concerned. He has been discharged from the hospital, and the physicians deemed for him to just rest at home rather than go through chemotherapy.
His family is very close to mine, more so to me, because his wife was my schoolmate. I’m the godmother of their eldest child. We have spent a lot of good as well as bad times, a lot of holidays and road trips. It’s really breaking me to pieces hearing this very sad news.
You’ll never know what tomorrow brings. He was fine when I went back to the Philippines in July at my Dad’s wake and funeral. For me, this year has been remarkably good yet marred with really great losses. I’m hoping to end this year without any more bad and sad occurrences. All I can do is hope and pray for that.
