So on the way to helping a friend move to Iowa we were in a car accident in st Louis. We're fine but it set us back a bit in cash and time Meanwhile my father had a stroke and \he was doing pretty poorly for a while but now he is doing much better. One of my half sisters is staying with him and has really done a lot to help him. She and I may have had our problems but I give her props for what she has done for him and our uncle. The results came back on my step father. He has 1st stage small cell lung cancer that is inoperable and is in one of his lymph nodes. We're pretty upset about this but it is treatable and I have started researching everything I can on things to help with his cancer. The problem is he's a Veteran and his insurance is through VA. It means he is stuck with the hospital and treatments they are giving him here and we can't take him to a civilian hospital for second opinions in treatment options because his VA won't pay for it then. Can anyone give us advice on foods, life style changes, or anything like that that can help him fight this cancer? He is in good spirits and besides being tired a lot, seems to be doing well. On top of it we are being sued over some land dispute from ten years ago that our neighbors had with the guy we are trying to buy our property from. We can't get a strait answer from anyone, and have been forced to hire a lawyer because of this big mess. On the bright side of things, my sister who was living with us threw us a curve ball. She got engaged and moved out. She seems very happy and has been a help in taking our parents to their appointments. I have forced myself to step back. I have joined a gym. It is one that has heated pools and exercise classes for people with previous injuries like myself. It has been a great source of stress relief for me. At this point I have had about all the fun I can stand. So.. um I don't want to play this game any more, can we play something else like... uh happy fun time circle?
