That is the operational word: Living! What a rush the past 5 weeks have been and what a relief it is to be in today. Yesterday we learned that Clo is responding remarkably well to treatment. Her prognosis has gone from 6 weeks to 3 months as we were originally told, to 10 years or more! A giant leap, I would say!!
One day we are in France, 9 days later we were in the emergency room in Toronto. We learned Clo has stage 4 breast cancer that has metastasized to the liver and spine and hip and she has shadows on her lungs. She is in bed now, unable to eat, barely able to walk. Friends, family, colleagues, many, many we do not even know, have written, phoned, brought in food, sent love, prayers and meditation, given support and amazing care and kindness.
