Gheedad found out yesterday that he does have lung cancer. My mom told me this morning. I am sad, but I know that I can’t be too sad because Gheedad is not sad. He’s been so frustrated for the past couple years about not being about to do much with his life, and now he’s relieved because he knows the reason that he’s had so much trouble. All he’s concerned about is making sure that Ghee is okay and that we take good care of her…we will take care of her as much as she lets us! He is excited because he knows that he will finally be better, and finally be home.
He hasn’t found out how much is cancer has progressed yet, but I think it’s pretty bad. We’ll find out soon. Almost the whole family will be together for Thanksgiving this year. That will be great because it will probably be the last time.
My mom said that when she talked to him on the phone this morning, he sounded better than he s in a long time. She said he sounded like a coach who knew he was going to win the game =)
