Not a lot you can say to make her feel better right now Elly! For her, there's still worse to come! She knows she'll have a decision to make at some point and when the time comes, she'll need a friend! Maybe just let her know you are there for her!
Yeah - just need to be there, I guess. The upshot is that it's not a tumour, but a nasty ulcer. The wee thing is 16, though, and it's probably just a reprieve for now. However, I'm pleased that it's treatable at this stage.
