Life, etc.

A very dear friend e-mailed me this weekend with the news that she's been diagnosed with MS.

I had only the vaguest idea of what MS is, so I went to the website.
Most people with MS have a normal or near-normal life expectancy.

The majority of people with MS do not become severely disabled.

Well, so there are worse things.

But, damn ...

I left her a phone message and sent her an e-mail. Haven't heard back from her, hope she's OK, but she said she needed some alone time so I understand if she doesn't want to talk.

Hoping to hear back from her soon.
