Guest Rebecca Posted March 15, 2005 Share Posted March 15, 2005 We've been together for going on seven years now. The VA found a shadow on an xray. We now know it's lung cancer, but not what kind. We know it's inoperable. They won't start any treatment until they determine what kind it is. We're going crazy with the wondering. I'm terrified of life without him. He says he will jump through all their hoops as long as there some light at the end of the tunnel. The bottom line is, this is terminal and all they can do is, perhaps, retard its growth. I weep all the time, in the car, at work, outside with the dog. I lost my father to emphysema in 1985, my mother to lung cancer in 2001, and now Dan has both. I'm falling apart here. Thanks for letting me vent. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
