Re: shadow on an x-ray ...
Hey Tynel, I wish you all the best for your mom. My dad was diagnosed with lung cancer in January of this year here in Canada. I know what you mean, and the frustration you must feel, its like a "hurry up and wait" situation. But this is my dads second bout with cancer and it was right here in Canada that he beat the odds last time.
For my dad it was the diagnosis that took the longest... after that his treatments started fairly immediately. He is done treatment for the time being and we are now waiting to hear how much progress has been made.
The waiting was the hardest part, all the what if's, ones mind certainly does run wild.
Once again, best wishes for you and your family.
