    Why do I live where the air hurts my face?

    Ok I may be Canadian; I may be use to cold and snow but trust me when I say .....I AM DONE!

    To illustrate my point:
    Wife to husband with squamous lung cancer stage 3 b
    dx - April 20/14
    tx started May 20/14 - radiation and chemo
    June 23 - chemo finished
    June 24 - tumor 1/3 the original size
    July 4 - radiation finished
    July 8 - PET scan shows tumor almost gone, lymph nodes back to normal
    Married July 19/14
    Sept 9/14 - repeat can shows tumor continues to shrink more, no new spots. New coughing and pain due to chest infection or side effect of radiation.
    Sept 19/14 - not infection but pneumonitis, place on dex for 4 weeks
    Oct 22/14 - now off of dex and facing even more symptoms of withdrawal
    Dec 16/14 - pretty much nothing left but a scar
    April 7/15 - ditto scan and screw you stats
    Oct 6/15 - more scarring but still cancer still gone
    Feb 2016 -scan the same
    Aug 2016 - more of the same
    Aug 2017 - and ditto
    Aug 2018 - 4 yrs NED

    No offense toward those who live in Kansas. But, have you ever been there? One benefit of spending 5 days in hospital is that they give you good lotions. The latest is Medline's Silicone Remedy lotion. DW is convinced of its goodness. It does not come with a moving van. However, if you do move, there is no better song than Roll on Down the Highway by BTO. Beauty, eh?
