So sorry, Els - just glad he didn't suffer more though, liver cancer is one hell of a hard way to die.

Just to try and temper that with a bit of good news...
From looking at the X-Ray, it looks like Mum is completely in the clear.
She has an appointment to go back to see the specialist, but at first glance it seems the lumpectomy did the job.

And yes, I did write her a card and cut her a rose.
We're almost back to normal now, thank goodness.

To all who post here, who have or have had cancer, or who have friends or family with it, you have my sincere empathy. Having lost both parents, two sisters and a brother to that disease, and having it myself, I want to second what Bruce said, in that wonderful large font.

I guess I'd choose that over the long lingering pain-filled cancer that took my Mom. 52 is too damn young though.

One of my oldest friends is near the end. He's been battling one of the worst cancers for a few years. I just talked to his sister - He is back in hospice trying to manage the pain and the swelling in his legs. He keeps saying he just wants to go home, begging to go home... Gahhhhhh. I'm not close enough, nor do I have the freedom to just go see him.

I'm torn between wanting him to fight and stay longer versus letting him go and having him finally be at peace. He's been in so much pain for so long.

So sorry classic. The choice - fight on or go - isn't yours. All you can do is help the family with what is. Wishing you strength to help you through your grief.

I have to agree with Griff on choosing that over the long lingering part - as much as it sucks all the way around.

I'm glad I had 13 months to cherish time with and say good-bye to my daughter, (although I'd never wish 13 months of cancer on a 2 year old - mine or anyone else's) but I'm glad my step-Dad only had 6 days of cancer filled time. It was strange losing him after only 6 days of knowing he had cancer, but very little time for pain-filled cancer for him.

And as for your friend, hopefully he had that week to say and do some things that he wouldn't have if he'd lost his life suddenly......I guess I always try to find some little "bright side of things"....I know that has to be irritating to some!

And most of all.......................


FUCK CANCER!!!!!!!

My cow orker who retired a bit early due to health issues just stopped in to tell us her cancer is back.

she'd had esophageal cancer some time ago. It came back last year. She fought it, and retired.

Well, it's back again. This isn't good. I've lost a friend to esophageal cancer.

And there's her husband, with her every step, taking care of her and loving her. He loves her so much, and it isn't fair and it isn't right for two such good people to have to deal with this. They also have young triplet granddaughters.

FUCK CANCER.
