I Wasn't Ready For This

    Coot Passed Away January 7, 2010

    My wife has had a nagging, persistent cough the last few months. After chiding her to go to the doctor for most of that time, she finally went on Tuesday. When they saw the chest X-Ray, they scheduled a CT Scan for Wednesday. Today, we went back to see the doc and the radiologist. They're nearly certain that she has a 6 cm. malignancy in the upper lobe of her right lung. She has an appointment for Tuesday in Boise to have her lung capacity evaluated, get another CT scan and a biopsy of the tumor to determine the kind of cancer it is in order to define treatment options. I was always upbeat when she went through the cervical cancer and then the skin cancer. I'm daunted now, lung cancer is such a motherfucker to beat.

    Oh my! No one is ever prepared for that. Best wishes and prayers to you and your family.

    I've always thought the same thing coot. But when my mom was diagnosed with lung cancer I heard so many stories about people who'd beat it including my boss' dad, and were now fine years later.
    I hope this is the case for your family
    Sending you good thoughts and best wishes.

    Oh no, Coot. That kind of news hits hard.

    I'm sending good thoughts that she'll be fine--there really is a lot that can be done--Cariad's right.

    I'm sorry to hear your news Coot. I wish you and your wife all the best and hope the prognosis is as favourable as possible under the circumstances.

    It surely is something you cannot be fully prepared for.
