Dr. O’Rourke just told me on the phone that we need to be prepared for the cancer to take Mama’s life in the next six months. I asked him if he was basing that on my mother or statistics. He said that he’s basing it on Mama’s cancer and his 25 years of experience. I told him that I would prefer that he not tell Mama that, because it would crush the little bit of spirit that she has left.
