Oh no oh no oh no. John Edwards is holding a press conference tomorrow to discuss his wife's health. According to CNN there are mixed signals coming from the campaign. Actually the campaign won't talk about it.

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards accompanied his wife, Elizabeth, who has been treated for breast cancer, on a doctor's visit Wednesday. His campaign said they would hold a news conference in their hometown Thursday to discuss her health.
I wouldn't wish this on Laura Bush or Lynne Cheney. I have seen this horrible disease happen so many times and lost so many important women in my life, it is the scourge for women in our times.

Update: seems Edwards went with Elizabeth to a follow up appointment. This is bad.

But why would they call a press conference? Could Edwards be dropping out because of a bad diagnosis? Why would they have a presser to announce a clean bill of health? Plus, we don;t know if this was a follow up doctor's visit that he attended with her.

The one time I met Elizabeth Edwards my impression of her was that she was a lovely woman. The kind of gal I could easily hang out with and talk about a number of things. Apparently she was the one who got the hubby to pay attention to the blogosphere.

A lot of good intentions should go out there tonight for her health and the health of all women.
