Janelle- I am so happy for you. What a wonderful life story you have in that you've always faced life's challenges with such postiveness and determination. You obviously have made an impact on not only other pc warriors and those of us who need to hear such wonderful outcomes but on your physicians as well.

It sounds that your brother has remained positive along with you and for that you have been blessed. I am always upset with anyone- medical and non-medical- verbalizing prognostic negativity (intentionally or accidentally) within the earshot of any patient. Survival time frames are often (from reading this board USUALLY) inaccurate and can place an individual in an extreme depressed state of mind. The mind-body connection is so strong for most people. Good for you to maintain your strength when told these inaccurate time frames. (I am sorry about your dad feeling so defeated it sounds).

Wishing you lots of positive experiences with your loved ones and please keep posting. Sonnie
