I spent most of today driving. First to a hockey game (12-2-2) and then to Connecticut for a somber visit.

My stepdad's father was diagnosed with lung cancer this past spring. Yesterday he was given days to live. I went today, to spend some time. One doctor came in the room, in the midst of things and stated that all the other doctors are wrong...there will be weeks, maybe a month or two.

I'm not sure how someone who has never even laid eyes on this man would be qualified to make such a statement, especially when it flies in the face of all of the other medical opinions. If the suffering is minimal I hope he is correct.
