    Thank you, Sandy. It must be hard to be far from family. We almost moved to NV after retirerment, my husband traveled for work and he wanted to get to the projects he never had time for. He was always outside doing stuff. All the hospice counclers said not to make any major changes at least for the first year. I wonder if they know how hard it is to do anything even the minor ones. It took me along time just to even...

            I know how you feel. I just felt so bad for what he had to endure. The last moments, last gasp of air. My husband of 38 yrs. passed Aug. 4th and I feel lost. Its getting better as I keep reminding myself ofall the Doctors, treatments, blood tests, scans, medications, side effects and feeling of helplessness he no longer has to deal with. He suffered greatly. He did what ever the medical people asked. We looked for hu...

PET scan scheduled in July then if all is well surgery.  My understanding was the combo rad/chemo was the better option. The radiation shrink and the chemo to get the micro cells that can not be seen on the scans. It is hard to do both, the radiation burns tumor ...
