Re: [MOL] adenocarcinoma stage 4/Welcome our newest Caregiver!



Hi!  No wonder your in a titter.....it is beyond all of us why Doctors think
they can play God and predict the future......just doesn't work that way.
We have all kinds of cancer on this line and hear over and over that they
were told "this is it"  and here they are year's later doing fine.
Attitude is the most important thing to the healing process.  It does truly
concern me that your husband is not checking into trials, alternatives; etc.
I would suggest you call the NCI @ 1-800-4-CANCER, they will be able to help
you also get a litst of the best doctors and caner facilites nearest you;
but don't let distance influence you if they have what you feel will be
best.  Is your husband on an anti-depresent?  Perhaps it would be wise for
him to get on some.  We truly understand your fear's friend and know we will
be praying very hard for all of you.  Would you be so kind as to stay on
line, we have many wonderful caregivers who will be responding to you also
with help.  Some with young children as yourself.  Your friend, lillian.
