Would you consider retitling your post ...  

NYT Opinion Editorial: How Long Have I Got Left? (or something like that)

Folks might miss it as is and it is a valuable article.

Peace. ~ Cynthia

Great article. It shows how hard it is to just take things one day at a time. Even doctors want to know what their prognosis is. As the article said, it's not easy to know because stats aren't up-to-date and they are approving new meds that affect the stats. Thanks, we really needed this.

My favorite section says it all:

 

"Before my cancer was diagnosed, I knew that someday I would die, but I didn’t know when. After the diagnosis, I knew that someday I would die, but I didn’t know when. But now I knew it acutely. The problem wasn’t really a scientific one. The fact of death is unsettling. Yet there is no other way to live."

This is our continued challenge.

This has been on my mind a lot lately, with my own life decisions I'm in the process of making.  Thanks Nana B!
