    I'm sorry to hear about your DH Sissy. My Mom passed away due to lung cancer that eventually metasized into brain cancer, but she lived many. many healthy years with inoperable lung cancer - and had no treatment for it deciding to forgo chemo or radiation - before she contracted pnuemonia and passed away quietly - and quickly. She was able to travel the world from one end to the other and remained healthly, strong and independant for over 7 years after her diagonoses - even though he doctor told her she only had 6 months to live if she didn't have treatment. So don't give up hope yet...doctors are often very, very wrong!

    An excellent point. I'm really suspicious of all the cancer "cures" - radiation, chemo, and surgery - and believe that they often hasten death instead of giving the person a bit more time. May your husband be one of those who defies the odds, Sherry!

    I also think that chemo/radiation just wears down an already weak body. Let him do what he can when he feels well and enjoy your time together. If he's open to it, there are places where people will give free Reiki treatments; this may help him, as they offer Reiki in hospitals and hospices.

    Thanks, Spartana! Yes, my little fellow is quite tough and loves life. He has endured a brain aneurysm, a stroke, heart attacks and colon surgery. I am the one that is the basket case. Maybe he will hold this at bay. Your mother must have been quite a woman.

    Thanks you all again. Sherry
