Vultures Row: Thanks, everyone

Thanks, everyone

UPDATE 8/22/05

As seen on Darth Apathy

As everyone knows, I spent the weekend in New Orleans visiting my sister. While I was there, I had the chance to speak at length with a couple of her doctors. They've admitted they cannot stop the spead of cancer; they can only slow the progress with radiation and chemo.

As it turns out, and as I had predicted, their estimation of a year was overly optimistic. Right now they're saying she probably won't see the end of this year.


First of all, I would like to thank everyone for their well-wishes, support, and prayers regarding my sister.

Sadly, they have all been in vain.

After a series of bone scans, CAT scans, and MRI's, we have learned the true extent of the spread of cancer. In addition to the breast cancer and the bone cancer, which we already know about, there have been additional complications. The cancer has spread to the lymphatic system, to the spinal cord, and to the liver. According to the doctors, the prognosis is terminal. At this point, it's just a matter of time.
