    we decided what ever he desides is what will be

    Decision Point

    He is 93 and lead a very healthy life up until last winter. He was sometimes short of breathe and a little unsteady on his feet. He had been in hospital with pneumonia. When we were concerned about the shortness o f breathe as it seemed to get worse even after his meds were done. We asked his doctor for further testing. They had seen what they thought was scare tissue, from when he smoked, last winter. But he had quit about 20 yrs ago when cigs price went up. He said I could use that $20. for something better. Like take Mom out to dinner, she loved Maine Lobster. So they did an mri, a ct scan and then a pet scan and that's when they found the tumor. In his lung about the size of a 50 cent piece. In an upper lobe. He's decided to leave it be and go on with life. We as his children are trying to do the same. Thanks for listening. I'm one daughter that is a 3yr Cancer survivor. Praise the LORD
