A dear friend of mine was diagnosed with non small Squamous cell carcinoma last month, this has come as a great shock as he has always been a very fit man, stopped smoking 30yrs ago. The specialist asked if he had ever been in contact with Asbestos in hs life but he didn't know, he worked as an avionic engineer before he retired and travelled all over the world working. It all started with a chest infection just before christmas and wouldn't clear up so eventually he had a scan done on the 1st April and was told the results on the 5th April, at the moment he's going through 5days of radiation, they said the chemo would be too aggressive for his body and would only make him more ill. They told him he will have approx 5 to 6months to live, I'm totally devastated as his breathing so far is normal, I'm hoping he will live longer as there's so much he want's to do before it takes over his body. I feel so helpless.

Quietly suffering in alone in silence. Grief. Isolation. More Isolation. Too much isolation!Anyway, thanks for listening, it was nice to meet you
I never ask for prayers but I feel like I need to. I've been sick since Sunday night. I went to the doctor and I had some tests done. I'm waiting for the results. It was discovered that I have blood in my bladder, my white blood cell count is high, my heart rate is high, and my blood pressure is high. I'm on Phenazopyridine to dumb and relax my bladder and Nitrofurantoin Mono to fight off...
