He is stage 4 and the decision to do chemo will totally have to be up to him. As the surgeon put it to me he will need to choose the quantity of life or quality of life. So it wasn't good news at all. He should be released from the hospital on Saturday. Just wanted to come and give an update

I am so sorry to read about Tim's cancer. Whatever you decide to do enjoy every minute with each other.

I send you my love and best wishes.
