Home nurse said this week that this is as good as I am going to be for a while. I am not expected to make it to Nick's 40th birthday on April 23. That makes me VERY sad.
But it is good to know that I have to wrap up some loose ends sooner rather than later. And that I may have to let go of some things I wanted to do that aren't all tht important.
11.14.13: I if you'd like to send me a card (and get one in return!), just email me at ang2568 at hotmail and I will share my address with you!
This is a place for me and my family/close friends to share information with everybody who wants to follow what's going on with me and my winning the race to see what's after life.
This month, October 2013, I was diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer and it has spread to my heart sac and liver. Doctor's best guess is "months." October 25, we find out if my cancer was caused by a genetic mutation (non-hereditary), and if so, I may qualify for a pill treatment that will give me a year or a little more (we hope).
I have appreciated EVERYONE'S offer of support and assistance, and trust me, I am not too proud to take advantage of those offers! I just don't need so much right now (or don't know that I do). But I will not hesitate to say, "Who can take me grocery shopping?" or "I'm having a really bad week, can someone come hang out with me and drink while I enjoy second-hand booze?"
I come to this site every day and love that you are still sending messages to her. I wish I knew who sent her the tiara towards the end. I wanted the person to know she opened it just before going to the hospice home, put it on and off she went - redhead with glasses and a purple tiara. I misplaced the card that came with it - but whoever you are, know we loved seeing her wear it.
