tytiff wrote:I don't know if this qualifies but it made me think, how can you say that? As we were sitting waiting for the dr to come out and tell us how the surgery went, Tyler's Mom and Aunt were talking about how hard it is to get old and how your body hurts. I didn't say anything but in my head I was thinking, it beats dying at 42 of cancer! I know what they were meaning, and they meant no harm, I think I am just sensitive to the fact that Ty is so young and I would give anything to be 70 with him on our porch.

Now, I wouldn't wish that on anyone, and I'm sure it's awful, but she said to me, "your husband is so lucky his was colitis, because it's just confined to the colon." I said, "yeah, he sure was lucky to get stage III cancer." She felt like an ass (no pun intended).
