  •  It's all about the moment (4+ / 0-)

    All any of us ever have is what's right in front of us in the moment.

    The past is history, and the future never comes.

    Your shared situation brings that fact into sharp focus.

    I'm a nurse experienced with patients and families at end of life, including hospice. I've asked to join the Monday night cancer club, and will be contributing material based on my perspective.

    I won't delve into the clinical details you've so clearly grasped, because that's what they are - details - and they're not important right now.

    Your shared moment is everything you both have. That's a gift. Peace to you both.
