thank you so much for your kind words! We will hang tough for Mom. Miracles do happen, but reality is... the doctor says that IF Mom chose to do nothing --they gave her 6 months.. she then chose kemo and radiation.. this is to extend her life span by 20% I guess what I do not understand is 20% of what???? I have collected alot of literature and am making a folder.
Please know that you are in our prayers --enjoy what time you have left with your Dad. We all need Angels with us and I am sure he will be your eternal Angelwhen he reaches the pearly gates. As he has been here on earth.
May GOd Bless you and your family in these trying times.
Again thanks so much for your responce!

If the doctors gave your mom 6 months without chemo/radiation, and then added 20% if she chooses to undergo the therapy, to my understanding that would prolong her life by a couple of months. A couple of more months that you will have to spend with her. That's what I got out of it when we spoke with dad's doctors. I hope I answered your question. As always my prayers are with you all through this difficult journey.
