What R’ U’ Talking About?
1 One day a friend of mine told me that she had cancer. She had to have surgery, chemo and radiotherapy. She was lucky because eventually everything got well and in the estimated time.
2 Last 29th of April, after a chemo session, she fell sick and she decided to go to the hospital on her own by car. Once she arrived there, doctors told her she had to stay there for few days. Till the 4th of May, to be precise.
3 Visits were restricted and controlled. No more than two people could be in the room with her. In fact, no one with temperature or any kind of sickness could share the room with my friend. She was worried, sad, exhausted and for sure, frightened.
4 One day after, I decided to visit her. I wanted to see her. I wanted to make sure she was ok. I had the necessity of seeing it with my own eyes. Once together, a nurse came in and then they started talking about natural hair wigs, hair length and donations. The nurse commented something about 20 cm and my friend explained that some students of her in highschool donated their hair.
5 Mmmmm, what are they talking about? I wondered.
