Icon05 Hambubba's last will and threadstament

It's not time YET! I feel great. So, it was something I knew would happen, but dreaded. Doc says "no more chemo. There's nothing more we can do". Yeah. *POOF*.

So, I don't have a timetable. Liver is still working fine, and I suspect that's the critter that will go first. I don't know what to think. We had the numbers down to 50, but then it rose again, even with the strongest chemo that could be applied.

Make every day a great new day, enjoy every breath. Make peace with people, you never know how long you have.

I plan on working for awhile. There are some pills they could give me that may add weeks or months, but the risks seem a little high. I dunno. I probably won't do those.

I dread the end - not the ultimate end, but the pain and suffering I'll go through. My wife went through this with her dad, and basically he was doped out.

My dad died at my age. It seemed unfair. It's always unfair.

More posting when I have a coherent thought.

Everything I want to say seems trite and meaningless. I am so sorry.

The board wants me to add more words, but like Chloe said anything I add would sound trite.

Ugh. As others have said, words don't seem sufficient. So, how about some dark humor?

6) If you decide to publicly proclaim that you are leaving this board forever, be sure you really mean it.

Thanks, GenYus. Didn't cry until I got to the dark humor part.

Sorry, but that's why I whited it out, so no one would have to read it who didn't want to. With dark humor I try to take my cue from those most affected as to whether it would be appropriate or not.

No apology necessary. A few tears rarely hurt, IME.

Sorry, Hambubba! As Chloe said, anything else seems too trite.
