Earlier (in my first post) I wrote “Lots of people have cancer.” Even people who write nerdy comics. Here is an excellent example of someone who had cancer and survived. The part that I can relate to is the support that the Significant Other offers. They even get married in the middle of it all.
A lot of people tell me that I’m “great” or “special” because of my support for Loretta during her struggle with cancer. The way I see it, I’m lucky to be a part of it. I’m lucky to have her as my best friend. I’m lucky to be able to go home to be with her. I’m lucky to share her life with her. As awful and scary as this cancer may be, it is part of her life and I am still lucky to be part of it.
I recently asked her to marry me. She said she couldn’t because she was already married. Lucky guy!
