My brother-in-law Paul was diagnosed with cancer some time last year, or maybe late 2004. He'd been having treatments and seemed to be OK.
It's gone into his liver.
Sometime in April, either we'll all go up to New York, or they'll all come down here to visit.
Of course, the question starts to become "What will happen to Heather if he dies?" She was brain damaged in an accident years ago and cannot work or drive.
