Terrible news.

Post by OARRIAGA2001 » Fri Mar 24, 2006 3:13 am

I just don´t know how I'm typing this right now,  but I feel pretty confortable here, like if it was my family.

My lovely sister, Paola, has got cancer.  Womb cancer.  They detected it yesterday.  We are going to give her all the support she can get. And of top that; she wasn't very lucky, or no lucky at all with that husband of hers.  He never supported her with anything, but my sister was hiding it from us until few days ago.  She is getting divorced. 

Stupid jerk, he was just using her.  >:(  "It was a living hell being with him" she told me, and now that she is not, she is all alone with her baby.  I hope with all my heart that is not to late for that test she is taking tommorow -to find out how advanced is the cancer. :'(

I'm going to bring her with me.

How utterly terrible.  The sort of spouse who leaves a person stricken with cancer is the sort of person I abhor the most.

My sympathy and hope that her chemo is sucessful.

Argh... I'm sorry to hear that Omar.  I also hope it's not too advanced and she can do something about it.  Give her my best.

Yes, best of luck with the test. I'm sure there's something the doctors can do.

And tell her she's better off without that jerk!

Gawd, sorry to hear that Omar.  :-\ There's not much we can do at this end, but I'm sure that if you want to let off steam about the whole situation or whatever, people here will be happy to listen. Best of luck for the tests.

That truly does suck about that lowlife.  She doesn't need him, then.

Hope the tests come out as well as they can.  I'll be praying for your family.

I am so sorry to hear that, Omar.  I hope something can be done.
  Yeah, she's much better off without her ex.
