I'm hanging in there... I go in on Thursday for some X-rays. I had some taken this past August and another spot was found right near the tumor bed, but the radiologists and my surgeon thought it could wait until January, so I'll be finding out what's going on. My dad was 82 years old when he passed. Others have told me he had a long life, but to me it still wasn't long enough and none of us were ready for it. But, then again, you can never be ready for something like that. The doctors told us that as difficult as it was to make that decision, turning off the vent was the best thing we could have done. Still doesn't make it easy to do.
