  •  My 92-year-old great aunt sailed through (11+ / 0-)

    her radiation treatments for lung cancer. (Tell Leaves that if she needs some encouragement about coming through radiation well.)

    I suspect some people would be horrified by doctors even doing radiation on a 92-year-old, but you had to know Jane. She was tough as could be and in incredible health until she was 95 and fell off the roof of her house (she was sweeping the leaves off -- that's how she always did it) and broke a hip. Pneumonia and then congestive heart failure got her six months later, just shy of her 96th birthday.

    Confession time: When I'm not ranting about politics, I write romance novels
