Trisha, there are lots of people with cancer in their families who will tell you that a diagnosis of cancer puts you on this big rollercoaster, with big ups and big downs. What you are going through is very common. Researchers are still trying to figure out what will really help PC patients improve their chances of surviving their battles with the Beast, so everyone asks themselves whether "this" will work or not. Since you have mentioned an article by someone you know, another book that has been highly recommended by others i this chat room is "Final Gifts" by Maggie Callanan & Patricia Kelley. It may be available at your local bookstore, and if it isn't, you can order it through Amazon books (http://amazon.com) for $9.50 plus shipping charges, or through other sources, as well. This book was written by two hospice nurses who tried to give families information that might be helpful for patients who were nearing the end of their fight with a terminal illness. I know you are struggling right now to keep your equalibrium, and I know it's hard. Just hang in there! We're here for you if you need us.
