    I have wondered know you will die or to know you'll have to live with the worry of the cancer returning for the rest of your life...which is actually worse?
    Neither one! Both!

          I'm sorry to hear things have not been going well. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

          Tho' much is taken, much abides; and though we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will; to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

              The day that I was diagnosed, we talked specifically about what we would do in this case. We decided that a trip to Key West and appreciating the beauty of the water and the people there would be the way to spend that time "waiting". As I've said 1,000 times, I'm one of the lucky ones, as all we had to do was talk about it.

              Larry Is a hero - nothing less. You obviously have an amazing relationship, and you'll decide how best to go forward. TCLEFT is right and speaks for all of us -we hate this disease more each and every day.

              No words from me could do much for you, but please know that we are praying for you and also know that I admire your husband's strength and courage.

              A Hero! is what he is.
              Stage III Non-Seminoma- 7/11/06

              Completed 4x BEP 11/06
              Bi-Lateral RPLND (Dr. Shenifeld)- 11/27/06
              Surveillance since then

              When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope? We have two options, medically and emotionally: give up, or Fight Like Hell.
