November 5th is the day last year that changed Susan's life.

It's the day she sat with the husband in Sloane Kettering for seven hours drinking coffee from their fancy machine that grinds the beans for each cup & reading their brand new magazines.

It's the day that offered her no protection, the one she didn't see coming.

They would return a few times more, and each time the news would be worse, but by then Susan had an idea of what to expect. Last November 5th she was completely unprepared.

It's also the day that everything unimportant fell away leaving only love.

This reminds me of the day my dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The largest bummer in all of my life.

Susan, I remember a day like that with my Mom. Lung cancer. I hate freaking cancer.
