I Have A Secret

This afternoon we went to visit friends of ours in Edmonton as he is going through radiation treatment for esophageal cancer. His last treatment is on Wednesday and they are hoping that they can go home (they live 4 hours from Edmonton) shortly there after. He will start chemotherapy where they live.  During our visit, his wife asked if we could just go for a short walk to stretch out so we left the boys in the room to chat fishing and camping and we wandered down the hall.

It seemed like she had something important to say, but didn't know how to start. We found one of those nice, quiet sitting rooms and went in there. She sat down, looked at me and said, ''It's terminal you know?''. I guess the cancer has already spread to his lymph nodes and there isn't much they can do but hope that the radiation and chemo treatments slow things down. I feel incredibly trusted to have this information because she hasn't told her daughters yet. However, she asked that I don't tell even Mike and this is where my dilemma lies.

I have a secret and I don't know what to do with it.
