The words you want to hear

Sue’s mom had major surgery on Thursday for cancer. After several hours, we finally heard what we hoped to hear, “the cancer was confined to the uterus.” It hadn’t spread, and all of it was removed.

This makes me realize there are times when doctors must say something quite different, when the reaction then is grief, not exhausted relief.
