I am planning on being a dictator... hoping its not too much... but their room was so bad when I get too busy it happens and it was way too messy...all sort s of happiness knowing its clean and the laundry is caught up except one load tomorrow should be a good week

I'm ok. I was pretty freaked out going there yesterday - I was afraid that she would have a seizure or actually pass away while we were there. I've never been present when someone has had a seizure or passed away either.

The home health care people leave pamphlets that tell what to expect they have a lot of good info in them.. I learned so much helping with my MIL.. lots of stuff you hope to never have to know a gain but life being what it is I probably will.

She isn't on hospice - she wanted the treatment until the very end.

She didn't have the Novocure on yesterday, but I don't know when it came off. Probably for the MRI on Thursday. Right after the MRI she had a 6+ minute seizure.

Its clear not too much to worry about for another year, but made me start worrying a bit because of his moms cancer...I don't want to be that close to it and I probably will be some day...I don't like the thought of it...

agreed...He take excellent care of himself...so thats in his favor, but I asked him...if he felt he could really prevent cancer in his future and its so unknown...so he said he just needs to keep taking care of himself..

I am so glad I have no cancer history in my side of the family, but I worry about my DH and my kids now...

I think the polyps are pretty common. The good thing is that anything in that area usually grows VERY slow.

the Dr said their a re two types cancerous and non cancerous he said this type is usually cancerous.. I feel like we dodged a bullet just because he is diligent in doing what hes supposed too... really he had every reason to not deal with this this year... he could easily have put it off an we would be having a very different story.

Yes - cancer in the family tree. And high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and death from heart attack.
