ROAD AHEAD--WE WILL KEEP U INFORMED
MUM.DAD. AND TREVOR
Part of me wants to be super-positive, even flippant. "He'll be just fine! Yay, sunshine!" A slumped, cynical part of me keeps whispering in my ear, "He's going to die. You know, he's going to be dead in three years, and they'll be the worst three years of his life. And Mum's life."
"SPREADING" - I'm going to go ahead and assume that this means it's not early stages anymore. Great. I'll find out more tonight when I call.
For God's sake, if you're reading this, male, over 50, and I like you, get your prostate checked.
