Not all days are filled with sparkly christmas love. Be nice if they were.
Today was marred by the passing of a dear friend. Someone I had worked with for 18 years. She was one of my staunchest supporters in my darkest times. She always told me that she and I would make it because only the good die young and neither her nor I were good. She was wrong because today she left me to fight alone. We shared oncologists and I had to visit with him today too. A mix up with the lab meant that he wasn't able to give me any results and I had to go take further bloods. I'll know how I am travelling in the next few days.
Definitely not sparkly. I took plenty of time out for reflection and reality.
