Sorry you have to be here on this site but you'll find wonderful
and supportive people here.

Since you are a nurse, I'm assuming you're fairly knowledgeable about
what's going on. However, that doesn't change the fear and anxiety
that comes with all of this.

You and your family are in my thoughts and sending
positive energy your way. Please let us know how things
are going and hang in there...

Big cyber hugs,

For good results for the PET scan and for grace for all of you to deal with whatever you face.

A dad is a special person to a daughter: I lost my dad to cancer 23 years ago yesterday. He took every treatment available and I know what a gift that was to his family. He would not have had it any other way.

Cancer treatment has come a long way, Kado, as I'm sure you know. There are good outcomes every day from even the most frightening prognosis.

Hugs. Let us hear from you.
