"It's good news!" said the voice on the other end of the phone. She sounded ecstatic. When you are nurse working in oncology, relaying good news must come as a welcome change.
"You're kidding!" I exclaim. Then, "I don't know why I always say that."
She laughs. "Well, there is no change. It's stable."
Seriously, she sounded giddy. We giggled some more.
She said, "You have a wonderful week end." She really sounded like she meant it.
Suddenly, I'm in the mood to celebrate. I already have dinner plans. And I probably would have had a beer anyway (they have Beau's. How could I resist?).
Now, I may have two. But I doubt it. I will just enjoy the beer, the food and the company (six people I love), even more.
