Steve...i'm onit.....Both of You in my Thoughts & Prayers.
Thank you for the thoughts and well wishes. As i said there have been some of you who I've talked to either in person or through the forum,so rather then write half a dozen or more PM's i posted. I do really appreciate the outpouring of support both now and in the past. Also if you know someone who is battling cancer its important they keep a positive attitude. So much is put on what stage a cancer victim is at and when i tell folks my wife is diagnosed Stage 4 they gasp. When they look at her there puzzled because she does not really look sick. The fact is she is beat up from this battle and cant do a lot of things she did before but she still is reasonable active and enjoying life the best she can. The other thing is as much as id love to move,living so close to the city has some big benefits and in my case, her being a patient at Sloan Kettering memorial was a major plus. Being the number 1 cancer facility in the country certainly has helped and i don't doubt they have given her the last six years. The other thing is if you've ever heard the stereotyped New Yorker as being rude,a visit to Sloan will but that myth to rest. The place is spotless and everyone is friendly,helpful and caring and that is from the top doctors to the guy in the parking garage. Its what they pride themselves on. My wife although not really liking forward to more surgery and chemo,is at least confident that she is holding her own in this battle and has many many good years ahead of her. Were both the kind that don't live any part of our lives in denial,we face what it is and deal. We both know the chance of complete remission with what she has is extremely remote and have been told there is no cure. However the question is quality of life and this is what the doctors strive to give you. As long as my wife is a candidate for surgery the doctors feel they can keep her type of cancer at bay. She is no where near the point that surgery is no longer a option. When that happenes it will only be chemo but were not thinking that far down the road. So that's pretty much the story. I know what i have ahead as far as being a care giver. Honestly I'm not looking forward to it but I'm not the one with cancer either so i just do what i have to do and do a good job at that. Anyway thanks again,we appreciate it
