Bowing to the Inevitable

 Well, we got the news I've been expecting ever since my uncle Richard was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. 

The official results of the biopsy came back tonight and they can't do anything to treat it, it's metastasized too far. They gave him 2 to 4 months to live.

To be honest, though, I'm a little disgusted with my family at this point. Directly after Richard's diagnosis, he was referred to M.D. Anderson  Cancer Center and Richard just grabbed on desperately to any shred of hope they gave him before the biopsy was done today. He's been much more cheerful and very optimistic about the alternative treatments and cutting edge medicines they were touting. 

Only now, after the biopsy, it's "Yeah. No, sorry. Nothing we can do."  

And the entire family knows, while Richard is still in recovery, and has planned a mass exodus to Ft. Worth. Now how do you think he's going to feel when they tell him? If I were in his place, the last fucking thing I would want is an endless freak parade of neurotic extended relations coming by to slobber all over my bedside like I'm already dead. I can guarantee you that's what's going to happen tomorrow morning and I'll tell you, I feel really sorry for him. 

It's like insult on top of a mortal injury, Good God.
