Can't believe we are coming up on two years, some days it seems so long ago.....other days it seems like it was just yesterday. I still miss my hubby everyday, I do have someone else in my life ....its just different..... Sending you...

              Dear Fletcher1, I would roll the dice and go with treatment, my husband was diagnosed with the same exact cancer he lived 3 years and 3 months from date of diagnosis with treatment, I do believe he would have lived 5 years which there is a percentage that do I think the only reason he did not make the five year mark was he continued to smoke, treatments were successful, his tumors shrunk, he was never cancer free. ...

                    Maxdeakin, I am so sorry for your loss that was a lot to take in for such a short amount of time. On the message board we have a bereavement board my suggestion is for you to look at the posts there, we have all lost a loved one in the bereavement group wether it be a spouse, mother, father, child..... What I have found about the bereavement posts is that everyone had the same feelings as I did we were all on the s...
