We talked to Dr. Oncology today over speaker. Ben's very weak, and his blood doesn't look like it can handle much more.
Where are we with everything then? I ask.
Ben decides. He doesn't want any more chemo. It could work, not work or kill him at this point. No more, he says.
And so now what? I ask.
Find joy. Find the joy in your life and live your best. With joy every day.
How long? I ask. I know you don't have a crystal ball, but is it Christmas? Next summer? I'm hopeful.
There is a pause. A sigh.
Dr. Oncology finally replies: Weeks.
