    Grandmother diagnosed with advanced cancer

    She actually got diagnosed one year to the day after my dad had gotten his diagnoses. She has chosen no treatment and is back at home with hospice care.

    Prayers sent. Make her as comfortable as you can and let her know that she is loved.

    Wow. Very tough. My thoughts and prayers to her, and to you. There is absolutely nothing I can say other than I understand and will pray personally.

    Spencer, I'm sorry to hear, but at least she is in a position to make that decision for herself. I hope you and your family get to spend some time with her in whatever time she has left. She and your family are in my prayers, neighbor.

    Stupid effing cancer. I hate how we all just 'understand' that someone chooses to not fight it, because the battle is too costly and too hard to win. We need better tools & better weapons.

    I wish your grandma peace & your family too. It takes a certain braveness to choose dignity and peace, and I hope for the best.

    Prays going out for her and the family.

    Cancer is cruel in the way it does people. It treats everyone differently. My mother in law suffered for over 1 1/2 year before finally succumbing to it. My Mom on the other hand, was diagnosed with it on a Monday, slipped into a coma on Wednesday and passed away on Sunday. I know which my choice would be of the 2.

    Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers. She passed away early this morning peacefully at her house in Gold Canyon. I should be home on leave by Thursday and the service is going to be sometime next week at the National Cemetary so she can be with my grandfather again.
