Because of his age he has elected not to go with a regimen of chemo and/or radiation treatment. So I have no idea what the long/short term prognosis is.
(thanks ahead CMers for "going to the well" again....for this one hits close to home..but they are wonderful "Faith-filled" individuals and will take this in stride)
As a side note....I've just come to the conclusion since many of my friends are getting older this will probably happen more and more. Just trying to accept God's will as this sweet couple is~ l.y. j
Sorry to hear about your friend, Jerry. It is serious, but with God all things are possible. Will send up a fervent prayer for healing.
