A dear person to me is imminently terminal

I've alluded to this a bit previously.

I still don't think I should be going into the details in public, but yes, a very dear person to me was just given a confirmed diagnosis which means this person will die. It could be very soon or "just" soon.

What makes it especially hard for me to both cope with and talk about is that there are some deep level connections / resonances between this and something which happened to/with me when I was in the hospital, something I've still not figured out how to talk about.

So... thought I should at least make it clear that there is imminent loss in my life.
We're frantically trying to work the logistics of my many tests and scans and doctor's appointments such that when the imminent becomes actual I will be able to go to the funeral.

If you know me from real life, odds are you know this person. If you don't, its certain you don't.

About this poignant picture

Given the circumstances, I had to go with something true to my deepest artistic sensibilities. The picture is from the Wiki commons-
