i cant sleep. gbf called me today to tell me that he has lung cancer. to say that i am stunned is an understatement. i have been researching statistics and treatments. the statistics suck-there is like a 15% survival rate. he is at least a stage 2 since it is already in his lymph nodes. praying a lot. calling temples and having his name put on the prayer roll.
some good news is that his youth is on his side. who thought 40 would be considered "young"? the average age of diagnosis is 71. the majority of deaths is in that age bracket while the 37-44 age bracket is much, much lower.
praying a lot.
it just doesnt seem real.
