This afternoon (April 4th) is my wife's last day of radiation treatments. THis has been far more draining on me (let alone on her) than I expected it to be before we started 6 weeks ago. And my lack of work on this web site and message board shows it. It will probably take us two or three weeks to completely get back to normal, but the RetroRoleplaying site should see an update and I will be doing more with this board in the relatively near future.

I've been following Donna's cancer diary and I think you both have incredibly good attitudes. My wife is permanently ill with a couple of incurable, but non-fatal conditions. I left a career in the military to become her full-time carer. Donna's spirit reminds me of my Susan's. Considering what you guys have been going through, it's amazing you've been able to keep this website running at all. Please know Randall that you're both in my thoughts.

Regards
Dave

My wife is permanently ill with a couple of incurable, but non-fatal conditions.

My father had a couple of those incurable conditions and had to take a medical retirement from civil service (of course, this was after 20 years in the military where he acquired the beginnings of two of his medical problems. My mother took good care of him -- I'm trying to follow her example with Donna. Although, in Donna's case the prognosis is much better and the need for this level of care temporary.  I hope Susan does at least as well as my father did.

Thank you. Fortunately, she has a month to recover before much else will be done. She'll have a another CT scan then and they will decide if chemo is a good idea. One doctor really doesn't think it will be. The other isn't as sure. We'll see but are hoping it will not be needed.
