      Perfect song. Melanoma is a crap shot. But, you and Bob both have to realize that he is not a statistic but real flesh and blood.  You really have no idea no matter what you choose which side of the coin you will end up on. As horrible as this disease has been to me, I have also learned from it.  Each day is sweeter, I've made friends I would have never met, and yes I've shed tears over friends I've lost.

      After a few months acceptance does get a bit easier.   I'm stage IV, had been NED for almost a year this time before my latest recurrance.  I'm still planning on a future, we have recently moved over 5 hours from our last house.

      By the way, I love your website and your wit will help you through these rough times!!
