So here I’m, 74 years old and I can walk, talk and write but I’m having difficulties wit breathing and swallowing. I’m in the Hospital. In one of the best Hospitals in Illinois. After 10 days of tests, scans, x-rays they come up with grim diagnosis: Terminal Lung Cancer. But they are not saying exactly what kind of cancer it is. Well, I don’t want more scans: like a brain scan and other inch by inch body scans… I’m going to a Rehab for reevaluation… I need to relax, take a deep breath 😦 let it all sink in, learn what options I have and then decide what I’m gonna do…
At first I accepted the grim prognosis. I told the Doctors: ” OK, if you say there is no cure,Then I want to be left alone. No chemo, no radiation, just give me something for pain and help with breathing….” So they put me on morphine. I can have a 1/2 a pill every 4 hours. It helps…. I’m talking to my Family and Friends that I’m ready to go to that better place any time. Because I’m really ready… But still I’m waiting…. I have to make final decision soon. Should I get up one more time and fight like I did 10 years ago, or give up…… I need few days….
So tomorrow is an Easter Sunday. Happy Easter everyone.
And tomorrow is my 74 Birthday. Happy Birthday to me anyway.
Thank you for visiting. God bless. Oneanna65
