misskitty, I wish the very best for your cousin, and all your family. Cancer really IS a family affair.
Some good news about the policeman who got shot here a couple of weeks ago. My son and his partner transported him to the airport day before yesterday. He went to a rehab in Atlanta which is supposed to be one of the best. My son said that the man has some sensation in one leg. That's a good sign, I think. Also, his paralysis is from the chest down, not neck. He has some use of his arms.
