Treatment options, if any, will be discussed. Probably won't participate.
Mentally, I'm doing fantastic. Pain is progressing terribly on a daily basis but doctors have assured me they'll help me stay comfortable (easier said than done ). So far Oxycontin and Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen are working ok.
So............I won't have to endure the loss of my husband, my children, or my friends...being the first to go is really going to be a freeing thing. Plus I get to play the Cancer Card whenever I want to...and so far it's been working great!
I will live every day of my life the best I can. And I think I'll spend less time on things that stress me, i.e. politics, and more time on playing.
