The doctor has been in and told us that the prognosis is not good. My favorite cousin is lying in ICU. My bouncy, funny, sassy, sarcastic, silly, full of life, crazy as a loon cousin is covered in wires and tubes fighting for her life. Silently, without warning, cancer has taken over her abdomen.
Is it selfish to want her to stay? I'm not ready to say "goodbye". None of us are. She is suppose to be with me at Christmas Gift 2008 just like she was at Christmas Gift 2007. She is suppose to be here for her daughters and grandkids and her brothers and her aunts and uncles and her cousins and her friends.
This can't be happening.
