So sad

A friend of mine just told me today that in January she was diagnosed with cancer. Not just any cancer but cancer of the colon and liver and stage 4 at that. She had some indigestion after dinner at a restaurant that lasted for days and when she went to see the doc they rushed her in for emergency surgery to removed parts of both organs. She's been through chemo for months now and lost 15 pounds and she was a skinny minnie to start with.

She had a hysterectomy a couple years ago due to problems with uterine fibroids and now this. Before she even told me which parts I mentioned to her that it was probably related to spleen qi deficiency and liver qi stagnation -- commonly recognized causes for uterine fibroids. How freaking scary though. She's healthy, exercises regularly and is a vegetarian.

Send her some prayers and healing thoughts if you can.
