December 12, 2008
I received unemployment and then cancer. The unemployment status was welcome. The cancer was not. The unemployment status was expected. So was the cancer.

I was in the emergency room one night, unrelated to my own diagnosis. A doctor friend was there. We hugged and when we parted, I remarked that we were sporting the same hair style now. He had lost his hair and so had I.

I told him Id lost my job and got my diagnosis a week later.

Oh, he replied with a laugh. You had seven good days!

I just love a man who understands.
