When you're a cancer patient, there's a lot of waiting

Waiting has to be one of the hardest things about having cancer. Sometimes it’s even harder than getting bad news. When you know what you’re dealing with, at least you can take action, make a plan, get organized. In the meantime, you are stuck in limbo with your worse-case scenario thoughts.

After being called back for a second look after a recent mammogram, Jill is now anxiously waiting for the next appointment and, more importantly, the results. Judy went through a very stressful time this winter, waiting for test results. (I’m happy to report all is good!). Sue Hendler is waiting to start a new cocktail of chemotherapy and writes about it in her column in today's Kingston Whig Standard.
