For the last few days, I've been spending a lot of time with my friend, Diane, at the hospital. Diane is coping with cancer via hospice care. Every day is a gift.
So, since she is part of our infamous "Girls Group" which meets every Wednesday night, we have decided that since Diane can't come to GG, we're takin' the party to her. And we have done so a couple of times this week!
Saturday night, we had a good time with 70s music, raspberry sherbet (her diet is very limited, but they let her have this, so we ran out and bought some and brought it back), various games, and even a tad bit of dancing. Her dad was so overcome with emotion that he cried big crocodile tears when he came in. And then Diane cried because her dad was so happy. Many of you know that he just lost his wife, Diane's mother, to brain cancer on March 7, yes, just a couple of weeks ago. He is enduring a lot for an 80 year-old man. What a sweetheart.
So here are some pics of the little party on the oncology floor. The reason Diane has on that sparkly hat is that she is a total girly girl, loves pink, sparkle, jewelry, BLING. So one of the GG brought this snazzy hat for her wear, which she did all night, except when her DAD wore it!
