Hello, 2 years ago I was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and thank goodness the chemotherapy and radiation got rid of it but not before nearly killing me. Got nearly 2 more years with my two boys aged 11 and 13. Thought it was over except for three monthly endoscopic tests. That was until 20 March this year when I was told to have a pet scan. There they found the thing was back, bigger and meaner than ever, My tumour is in my oesophagus and of course they can do nothing. I am terminal and have accepted it. I will die sooner than later according to all the doctors. I am 54 and asingle mum so my main concern are my boys who are now 14 and 16. Does anyone else out there have terminal as well. Is Mischa out there anywhere as after I wrote 'Real' as a blog we were in contact for a while. Really not sure how to use this site any more but would like to talk to someone who is in the same situation. I have just come home after being in palliative care and it is great to be back with my children. Although I have to have nurses and family here all the time. Madmik
