Take time to compliment a cancer patient on the regrowth of her hair, and to listen to her talk about the latest in her treatment.
I met this woman about three weeks ago, the day before she was to go in for a double mastectomy. Family history has given me some lessons in what comes along with this surgery and related treatment. Today, while passing by her place, I stopped in to check on her. She greeted me on the porch, without her wig. I quickly noted with excitement the new hair that was adorning her previously BALD, bald, BALD head. She was as pleased as she could be that someone noticed, but surprised that I did, being so new on the scene.
Then we sat on the porch and visited, first about her latest, then moving on to the more relaxing themes of kids and neighbors, animals and the fair.
