mother in law had an mri yesterday to see if the chemo and radiation treatments made any difference. The results were delivered today: the tumor has continued to grow. mother in law was given the option of another round of radiation/chemo but has declined. She's been given up to 12 weeks to live. Dinner is going to be very difficult this evening as husband and I let Duckie know about this. She was already stressed in school today because their D.A.R.E. officer was talking about cigarette smoking and cancer deaths. Poor kid.
