Well, CG (and everyone else), I have a suggestion for something we can do for you and the family. As HRE said (I think), if there is need for funds for treatments, we can help. It seems though that you are able to get the treatments that are necessary without help (just the impression I'm getting as it looks as if you are moving forward without mentioning the need). If that's wrong, of course, let us know.
If that is right, however, what can we do???
I mean, flowers are nice, but they only last so long.
What can bring comfort to your family if the worst is realized? There are many things, perhaps, but I think there is one thing that people may not think of.
What about a top-notch, professionally done, photo book for your wife, each of your kids, and others who need one such as your parents or siblings? This is a treasure for the rest of their lives. They can remember you in your native environment, around the home (and probably the hospital sadly), in situations and doing things that they normally have seen you in and doing.
I know a photographer from Canada who is absolutely fantastic. It's practically a crime that he isn't already famous. He is an environmental and editorial portraiture photographer, working in mostly black and white, but can do beautiful color as well. In other words, he works with available light, not in studio, and so can get the type of photographs that would be most meaningful to your family.
I suppose that some photographs that you already have could be spliced in with the new work so that there are also pictures from healthier times.
The main point of this idea is something that can bring comfort and a closeness and fondness for a father, husband, brother, son, etc., for years and years to come. Of course, traditional prints can be made as well for displaying around the house. Family get-togethers, I think, would have a more intimate feel with something like a nice hardback photo book on hand.
Anyway, this is not a hard sell, just an idea from my heart that I hope may comfort through time. If it isn't interesting to you, CG (or others), that's fine.
This would be paid work for my friend and would not be so inexpensive (though I don't have any idea how much), so we would all have to pull together to finance it, like we have been saying we are willing to do. The main thing is, is it meaningful? I think it would be on your end, CG, and my friend could really use the work (it's proving hard to break into high-end portrait photo work for him).
I'm thinking, at the least, the photographer would need to be around for three days, but possibly up to a week, to get enough good quality work from a variety of settings. This would, perhaps, be the biggest challenge since you may be starting aggressive chemo very soon.
I'll leave off here to see what everyone thinks, mostly you, CG. Our family is praying for you and we are still hoping for a miracle to the glory of God.
