So it goes.

We saw a lung specialist today at the VA. He showed us the pictures of the lung cancer. It is about three inches across and is blocking part of Jim's airway. It also has collasped part of his lung. We will do radiation first and then a couple of weeks after that when we are done with the radiation. We will do the chemo. They don't think that Jim can hold up too both at the same time. Bad news is that we found out this is stage 3. For those who don't know cancer goes from stage 1 to stage 4. The higher the number the worst it is suppose to be. Not good.

He is determined to beat it. Do I think he can? Who knows? He has surpised me and the doctors more often than not. So we will see.

The two of you are hardy stock, mark my words, Roz.You've weathered storms before-you can do this.

Mom once told me that in the end when the kids were all grown up you just have eachother.She tends to be right.

(Pauses in thought here...)

Sweet blessings your way my dear friend.
