hi there. I agree with yearight. Focus on the quality time while you can, it won't be long that your parent will be gone. I know it sounds very shallow but I too try to have this perspective. This site is a good one, it helps bring to focus many issues that we will face coming to terms when a loved one is almost near his/her last few moments on Earth. Take care, you're not alone.

Dear Jenny&Wayne, it is real hard to guess on the prognosis. There are lots of factors that come into play. As for the chemo, it does a number on cognitive issue's as well as everything else. It's called chemo brain. It is temporary and lasts longer for some than others. I'm glad to hear you are having a good response to it. There are numerous treatment options to help one live with CA these days.
Try not to focus on how long. Just enjoy each day as it come's and let tomorrow worry about itself. But for peace of mind do get your affairs in order. And then concentrate on quality not quantity. God Bless and hang in there.
