Re: vomiting blood
some people just cannot handle things like that and just will continue to live in denial.my mother in law did this when she was Dxed with cancer.unfortunetly,by the time she finally told anyone about her actual symptoms,she had the cancer spread all thru out her entire abdominal cavity and dies very very soon right after that,it had gotten to the point where it had shut down her kidneys before she finally said anything to anyone in the family.her greatest fear was that she would one day get cancer(a very very strong cancer history in her family,the worst i have ever heard of actually)go into the hsopital and never come out.thats what happened but only because she was afraid to see even the doc for regular visits.she just knew that one day,it was comming and she didn't want to hear those words.her entire side of the family ,five brothers and two of her shildren so far,all dies from cancer.thankfully my hubby goes regularly to see his doc for check ups on every imaginable body system.denial does kill alot of people.the fear of possibley hearing those words just keeps them from accpting that there could be a problem and possible cancer or some other familial disease running thru families.
i personally couldn't live that way,but my sister is the opposite.she just doesn't want to hear bad things.i sure hope your neighboor will do what is best for him,but at 80 years old,who knows.you sound like a very wonderful neighboor to have around.hes lucky to have you next door.let me know how things go.**
