- Yesterday the news that Mikey too has lung cancer hit me hard. I cried along with Bee, but this morning I am seeing a slightly optimistic side. We are all grateful that Bee got him to the doctor after a second bout with a cold….unusual for Mikey. It’s not small cell cancer, so the chances of it having spread are very small. The shape of the tumor has not changed at all since it was discovered. They will do a PET scan in two weeks to see if it has metastasized, and if they thought it had I’m sure they would have acted faster with this. Everyone is marshalling to help.

Her son George answered….sounding much like his brother, and said that Marion wasn’t much interested in having input now. It’s moving much faster than anyone had anticipated. I decided that I would continue sending cards and calling.
