Question: One thing after another..

 Polal - Fri Jan 06, 2006 5:01 pm

two days ago I found out my grandma had cancer. They have found it in both lungs, her liver, kidneys, and bones. They have not gotten the tests back for her lymphnode that they removed. (to test for cancer) I know she is pretty bad off from all of this, but is there any way to find an approximate prognosis?? I do not want to ask her, and I know she will not tell us, because she doesn't want us to worry about her. She lives in a different state and I would like to know so I can go see her. Thank you VERY much, this is VERY important to me.
