was catching up on a friend’s blog and came across this entry. i actually wrote about her in my blogspot account but never got around to porting the entries over to this site.
entries already ported over . click on September
among the few remarks that i received when i alerted friends and colleagues of her illness was that ’she looked so strong and healthy, you would never have thought she could be diagnosed with leukemia’. which was pretty much on the same lines i was thinking when i first heard the news.
and now looking at her (not literally, since i never did get to visit her) being able to blog about her experience and admit her fears, now that takes a lot of courage.
everytime i chat with her online (since she’s imposed a no-visitors rule on herself due to her low immune levels while undergoing chemo treatment), i am usually at lost on what to say.
to keep it too light-hearted might come across as me not empathizing with her.
to keep badgering her with questions on her health, i think she’s received that a lot already.
so i ended up sending her quotations on tv cards . that’s the least i could do.
