My girlfriend’s father is too young to have cancer. Yet, that is what he has: a tumor in his stomach.
This is unfortunate in many ways. She has been staying up late for her finals this past week. Now, she is staying up to take care of her father. Like my family, her parents do not speak English. So, she has to act as the translator as well as be there for her family emotionally. There is the Colorado internship that my girlfriend has this summer. That may be cancelled. And, it may seem her visit to California may well be cancelled, too.
Since she is trying to be strong for her family, the least I can do is be there with her while she is going through this ordeal. I bought a last-minute plane ticket and I will be flying out to Philly tomorrow morning.
