The Lighter Side
Believe it or not, there is a lighter side to all of this. Sure, it is a forced lighter side. There is some truth when people say, "Well...you have to be able to laugh about it or you will go crazy." I have been thinking about how to convey that lighter side here and I'm drawing blanks. I have shared the humor in this ordeal with Susan, occasionally with other cancer families, and on very rare occasions with close friends. For now, I'll just have to keep thinking about what would or could be appropriate for a mostly non-cancer family audience. And you will have to take me on my word that occasionally through this ordeal there are shining moments when it can all be laughed at.
