GD it is not supposed to be.

Yeah, 5/8 too short. But trivial at this point. Something lost in the translation from Italian to English. It is going to be ugly to fix. But that can be fixed.

This can't be fixed. Parents are not supposed to have to bury their children.
Well, "Other Kids" but just the same.

As my two boys were growing it seemed that our home was a home for all of them. And so we wound with a bunch of "Other Kids". We had them at Thanksgiving, we taught one how to cook a turkey, we helped another buy a house, others bring our "Other Grandkids" by, especially around the holidays.

While my two boys are about 50, as are the Other Kids, we are still in contact with almost all of them. Today we lost one of the wives of the Other Kid. (Breast Cancer) She became one of the other kids when she was in college.

You can't believe how much it hurts. I truly understand why nature is the way it is and parents are normally / naturally spared from dealing with the loss of a child.

And now stepping up on my soap box, totally my opinion.

There are "alternative" medical procedures offered out of the country. The purported reason is that the procedure / supposed cure is not approved by the big bad ugly FDA. Well, there is common sense reason involved, the reason is that almost all of them DO NOT WORK. And the reason that these procedures exist is to drain the patients bank account. These clinics offer hope, but false. The improvement in the "numbers" is irrelevant as most of the numbers mean nothing to real US medicine.

All one has to do is to look at the bank account draining of Steve McQueen by the Laetrile clinics in Tijuana, Mexico to understand how and why these clinics exist. The worst part of these clinics is that they tend to keep patients away from legitimate treatment and from possible inclusion in medical studies that may do some real good.

OK, stepping down from the soap box and my opinion.

We're both too upset to cook. I'll go pick something up to go with my double, triple Jameson.

So very sorry for your loss, anything that affects our "kids" is just as painful for the parents it seems.

To address your other comments. I'm a cancer survivor. I will tell you that from the time you get the call, and the time researching, trying to decide which course of action to take, it is all very difficult. One of the hardest decisions I have ever made in my life. At times you just want someone to tell you what to do. This is one of the few times in your life, that you are consciously making a health decision that will directly impact how long you will live, and no one can give you a specific answer, it's all ranges. Couple that with the fact that this is a huge business, and you are bombarded with marketing to tell you one place is better than the other, and some clearly prey on those who are sick. Someone that is sick, is seeking hope, that's what is hard. The decision on treatment is a VERY personal decision, one that the person that makes it, completely owns, even to the point that it affects their life span. I will never fault someone for their treatment decisions, they, and only they had that decision to make, and it is a hard one. My Mother chose a path that took her from us way too early. At the time I was critical of her for not doing more. Once I went through the process I fully understood why she did, what she did. Hopefully this will help you understand a little how people with Cancer, do some of the things they do.
