It didn't work.

It had been a while since we'd chatted. I thought I'd tell you about my new puppy, about going on vacation, about what had been going on in my life. But when you said,

she found a lump

my heart sank.

And when you emailed me today, to let me know the results of the tests, and said,

bad news

I cried.

There's nothing I can do. Not a damn thing. Except be here, be a friend, and listen when needed.

I wish it was more.
