    So sorry to hear of this.
    If the good Lord could eliminate one form of sickness, I'd pray it would be cancer.
    God bless you and your family, JD

    Sorry for the delays, but we came back from MI right before Lima swore in and it's been a busy time.

    Mom underwent 4 high dose radiation treatments and is doing chemo, but this stuff isn't really to remove or kill the growth, just to slow it down.

    She is unable to use her left side very well. She has motor function, but it's very degraded. The Doc says that "It shouldn't be that bad" and I am beginning to fear that the brain cancer may have spread to the spinal cord. She's been admitted back into the hospital for more tests to see what's causing the neural degradation.

    The prognosis is that without the radiation and chemo that she had about a month, but with the treatments about 1 year, 4-6 months being more likely.

    Well JD, very sorry to hear the news.

    Cancer is such an insidious disease because of the slow progression. Even a quick moving cancer is nothing compared to sudden death of a heart attack.

    I will keep your family in my prayers through these tough times for you guys.

    Stay strong, and I hope you have an opportunity to have some more visits. I know your mom will really enjoy time with her new grandson. I'm sure she can't believe how big he's getting.

    Take care buddy, and my best wishes for your family!

    Semper Fi.

    JD... I have your Mom and you and your family in my prayers.

    May the Lord comfort each of you in your time of need.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I'm really sorry to hear about your mom, JD. I know what it's like, having lost my sister and dad to cancer, and with my mom passing in December.

    Every chance you get, tell her how much you love her, and appreciate her for all the hard work she did in raising you. (You should be seeing just *how* much now, since you're a dad.)

    They have to leave us, eventually. But we carry them in our hearts, in our memories, in our genes, in our beliefs, opinions, and knowledge.

    And we see them sometimes, in the faces of our children.

    My thoughts are with you all. Take care.


    Edit: For what it's worth, I think Hospice is a wonderful, caring idea. My sister was in one, before she died in 2008. I loved the people there, and the work they did. My father-in-law was in one, too. It really was a blessing -- for him, and for the family.
