I have had the worst week of my life. I was driving my best friend since Jr. High School to WVU Medical Center for his routine luekema blood transfusion. Orginally he had a failed stem cell transplant one year out and was very weak from chemo. He was sleeping in the passenger seat and breathing a little heavy. Suddenly he stopped breathing and became very relaxed with eyes and mouth wide
open. I really freaked out, this is my best friend since childhood and he literally died right beside me. CPR didn't work nor were the parameds able to kick start the heart. I'm crushed at this point and proceeded to call the family to break the horrible news.
That was 7 days ago and my PCa robotic surgery is scheduled for 3/03. I'm a little concerned going into this thing with such a heavy heart. However, i can't stand waiting any longer knowing this cancer is slowly destroying my life. I'm still very nervous about this procedure the cath, pain, and after effects. Like everybody on forum cancer is the most dreaded word in the english language.
