    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Totally separate diagnosis in right lung - cancer didn't return/metastasize - again, appeared in chest xray - this time also in lymph nodes and liver so no surgery

    Decision Point

    Stay in hospital but stop treatments - quality of life more important than side-effects

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    After a tremendous fight, my mother passed away the morning of Dec. 3, 2011. Right before she passed, my father said she had a really good day. That brings me comfort.
