Some of what I bought.here. It looks killer with the new paint huh! These boxes were made by a 3rd grader.
Once we arrived, the doc walked in and said nice to meet you Phil I have been keeping an eye on you since last July when doc ??? talked about your rare case at a seminar. It turns out my Dad is the ONLY documented case of Merckel Cell Carcinoma in someone who is HIV+. It was funny when the nurse asked my Dad how he got HIV (living in San Francisco in the 80's DUH!) We let the moment quietly pass but I know we were both thinking it. We sat close to each other and listened to the doctor and both of us asked questions. She wanted to start an aggressive chemo treatment and my Dad said no thank you. He wants QUALITY of life not QUANTITY. He teared up a bit and said he was curious about death and that he is happy to have lived this long. That was a tough moment filled with love and fear and all kinds of letting go.
....then we went out for dinner because that's what you do. You keep on keeping on and you choose to feel the sunshine and see the rainbows.
