[QUOTE=chrelsey;2730669;]misskitty - I agree with gabriel and mrd that you need a different doctor - or at the very least, you need to have a serious talk with this one. It is a well known fact that having hope and a positive outlook is crucial to both physical and mental health, and to discourage someone from having hope is just not good advice, in my opinion.

And chrelsey, from reading your post about your MIL, it sounds like the doctors at the cancer center gave her the hope that the ER docs took away.
Here's to hope! For all of us!
