| | Re: Timing of telling friends and family about cancer diagnois
Well, I did wait to tell my family and friends about my cancer. I am so glad I waited. Although I do have lung cancer, I've had a PET scan and been diagnosised as most likely stage one, yay!!!! Overall, it was a much easier message to deliver, I was able to let my kids (who are adults) know this is a tough situation that will turn out okay
@Karzy 2 Day- thanks for the advise of going to a top notch cancer. I live in a small town in California, it there isn't a thoriac surgeon available. I've been able to reach out and ihavev the surgery done by a top notch thoriac surgeon associated with the Huntsman cancer Institute in Utah (almost impossible to get into Stanford closer to my home). I feel a little bad that I've had the local docs get me this far, then I'm going move on. But, really I feel I need to look out for my health rather than their feelings or egos.
Overall, such great news for a tough situation.
Thanks again for the great support and advise.
