I hear you HG. Unfortunately brain tumors don't have a very high success rate for survival. On top of the exisiting lung cancer, it's my guess that the cancer spread beyond what they imagined. I'm definitely no doctor. I lost a friend to a brain tumor 2 months ago, but he battled it for a good year and a half, it developed from cancer in the spinal cord. He was only 31 with a 12 month old son. Not to take anything away from Sandy's story and her plight. Just relating. I image at this point, & I'd hope that she's just let the stress go, and probably worries what she may leave behind for loved ones. Don't get me wrong, anything may/can happen, and the more hope the better. It sounds tough. Jadestone was very close with her for some time, that's why I initially said what I had.
