I've been thinking about the context of this for a couple of weeks now (moreover if I'd actually even post it) but here we are:
My best friend of my whole life is fixing to lose his father to cancer. This is a man whom I've known for around 15 years.
To make a long story short, his cancer has taken a turn no one foresaw and has has dwindled him down to nothing. I am scheduled to see him tomorrow but I'm not sure I want to do.
Let me rephrase that; I have asked to see him, but I'm not sure this is how I want to remember him - the way he currently looks.
He has refusing a hospice and it's obvious he wants to live out his days at his lake house.
Has anyone been through a similar situation?
Is it selfish to not want to see him like this?
It's hard not to want to say things like "how are you" etc, when seeing him....what does one say?
