A few months ago, Nate and I were enjoying a traditional greek bbq at Betty's place (Nate's friend). Betty's mum (in her 80s) was taking quite an active role in preparing our dinner, standing out in the backyard and cooking all the meat for us and her grand kids (who were all about our age). She seemed genuinely happy and I made the comment that grandma looked so remarkably fit and well for her age.
Last night, Nate and I went to visit Betty's mum in hospital. A couple of days ago was also diagnosed with cancer and has only months to live. Life can be so incredibly unpredictable.
