Hi Mam and Frank:  I have a touching story to tell.  When Jerry and I got married -- almost five years ago -- I was 51 and he was 43.  My parents couldn't believe my good fortune, and frankly, neither could I.  I kept wondering what was the matter with him!  LOL  Anyway, he kept nagging me, and I finally consented.  I called a very nice magistrate judge I had known for quite some time and asked him if he'd perform the ceremony.  He agreed to.  His office called the day before the ceremony and said he'd been transferred to Juvenile Hall and would be performing the ceremony there in his office!!!  I said okay.  When we got there, we were told that he'd been delayed at a hearing and another judge was going to fill in for him.  The other judge was a judge I've known for 15 years and I cannot stand him!!  He sends everything I do back!!  He's anal compulsive or retentive or whatever it is, and absolutely drives me nuts!!!  He performed the ceremony.  My daughter got lost and didn't make it in time.  My two brothers were our witnesses and my youngest brother's shoelaces were untied.  Jerry and I got the giggles and the ceremony lasted about four minutes.  Then we went out to dinner and went home.  Isn't that the most romantic thing you ever heard?  I didn't think so, and I certainly wouldn't suggest it to just anyone!  LOL  Love, Kathy

:) G'day Frank,
When Wayne and I got married, we had limited funds, and limited time too. we decided to (finally) get married at xmas time, and set the date for Feb. 28....Not very long to get organised! After going a few rounds with our parish priest we decided to have the ceremony and reception at home. We had a lovely lady celebrant, and held the reception in the backyard. I catered it myself. It was a lovely night. We got married on a friday evening, then went away to Cronulla Beach (in Sydney) for the weekend (that's all the time we could spare). Perhaps either you, or a relative have a big enough house/garden to do the same? What will the weather be like at that time? I seem to recall something about blizzards? Perhaps indoors would be a better idea, LOL. Anyway good luck my friend.

This is Kathy in Boise again.  My oncologist initially recommended radiation to the brain, but did not push it.  She told me there was a slight chance of brain damage and that my hair would never grow back normally.  I have opted -- at least for now -- not to have the brain radiation, and I've heard no more urging from my doctor.  In fact, the next visit will be to her nurse in March -- I am doing well enough that I don't need to see her.  There is more than one thing about the brain radiation that bothers me -- since I had an unpleasant experience with the chest radiation.  I hope this helps.  However, if the doctor is really pushing this treatment, he or she must have a reason.  Kathy

    Dear Paul:  I am 56 years old and I was diagnosed with small cell lung
    cancer last December -- almost exactly a year ago.  Small cell is a
    particularly virulent type of cancer -- it moves very quickly and is nasty,
    in that it jumps from organ to organ with great speed and deadliness.  The
    diagnosis devasted me and my husband.  The doctor said I had only a 35%
    chance of surviving.  She didn't say how long.  Because the cancer was
    confined to one lung, I was accepted into a clinical trial and given very
    aggressive chemotherapy and radiation.  I was very sick, and wouldn't want
    to go through it again, but I would do it, if the results were the same.  I
    read Bernie Siegel's books, went to a cancer support group, leaned heavily
    on my family for love and support, and kept my faith in God strong.  In
    March I was told that the cancer was gone and that I now had an 80% chance
    of surviving for more than five years.  If I have no recurrence within a
    year period, they will consider me completely cured.  This just does not
    happen with small cell lung cancer, but it did!  Even my doctors were
    amazed!  There are quite a few of us on this forum with lung cancer -- two
    of us with small cell -- the rest with the other types.  You will get
    educated answers and a lot of support from us.  Let us help you and your
    father.  Our Lillian and Marty are our researchers -- the rest of us
    each other and offer suggestions.  Let us know what type of cancer your
    father has, the location, and the recommended treatment.  Do this asap, and
    you will be amazed at the response!  Welcome.  Kathy in Boise
