You are right Allison. I am in my sixth year, John is in his seventh so we can celebrate that resistance, despite the problems. Si and Trevor are over four/five years (I think) yet we are all travelling together. Some days I think life will go on for a while, sometimes I am less confident of that. Most days, I wake up, check I'm still here and still functioning and make the most of it and when that day is a bad one I do less and look forward to waking up again knowing that there will be quite a few good days.
To all of us suffering from bony mets let's go as far as we can. As Top Gun would have said 'life is for living'
