Ginger,

I am so glad you posted this " less than wonderful" news. It must have been a hard thing to do.

The ATP family will want to walk with you through the processes, second opinions, Dr's visits, etc etc etc.

Know that we all want to support you as you do.

I for one will be praying for a good outcome from the second opinion. Group hug Group hug Group hug

Thank you Marilyn. When I saw Bill today the doc took me aside as I was leaving and really put the cards on the table for me. Saw the ct scan...what a mess!! Doc says no real point in trying to treat it aggresively as he doesn't see any light at the end of the tunnel...in fact he is now saying likely 3 months rather then 6. Feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place.

Ginger, It must seem hopeless but there is so much happening today in cancer research, perhaps that miracle will be there for you.

I will pray that you will find the help and support of friends and family to be there for you too.

May you be blessed with a sense of peace as you pass through the deep waters.

Ginger, I too will be adding my prayers for both you, and that Bill will be given the miracle of complete healing from his cancer. Hold each other close during this time, in love and tenderness. Some times that is all we can do.
I too pray that both of you are blessed with a sense of peace. Group hug

Ginger,
Please know that I am & will continue to send every ounce of strength I have to you & your husband. Say everything you need to say to each other & don't leave anything out.
All my love & humongous hugs dear.

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
