    we jointly decided what to do about it You have two choices he said To live or to die I responded with gallows humor I only became alarmed when he didn t smile The first is waiting until the PSA number rises A rising PSA indicates the cancer cells are growing When it happens we ll start female hormone therapy The hormones will reduce your level of testosterone which feeds the cancer cells And the second I asked To start immediately Which has the best chance of killing the cancer Neither Neither Although he kept talking it was as if he was speaking an unintelligible foreign language Eventually I heard English again Hormone therapy won t kill the cancer cells no matter when we start It just prevents them from growing It was the first time I realized they d be there forever flowing through my body waiting and getting hungrier with time They d be back not today or tomorrow but someday My long held belief that I controlled my life was obliterated by microscopic specks streaming through my blood and organs And as a university professor the most frustrating thing was I couldn t reason with them Within two weeks of the first injection I felt my body changing Nothing dramatic rather it was more like watching an overripe tomato start to rot First came the hot flashes then I gained weight followed by exhaustion and finally moodiness As my life became more disrupted I read how to and inspirational books each filled with vast amounts of information about cancer and consoling words about how to live with it But I needed something I could grasp and directly experience I found it not through books or contemplation but through volunteer work with children and adults who were dying My decision to become a bedside hospice volunteer wasn t a welcome topic with most family and friends To ask why I was choosing to be with people who were dying would draw attention to the possibility that my life might not be very long But there were some people who did want to know about my hospice experiences I told them that hospice isn t a place it s a state of mind a willingness to compassionately accompany someone on their final journey not judgmentally but as a friend who was willing to hold one s hand cry or just witness the end of life As I walked that path with more than 200 people I watched the joy of a woman whose mouth was wired closed as she smelled a fragrant slice of apple and I learned to accept what s possible rather than what s desired I sat with a musician who was listening for the last time to a Gregg concerto and I understood the beauty of things that had no words As I played Chutes and Ladders with a child I felt grief for the first time in my life and cried as he told

    by John P Monteverdi How does it feel to chase a storm Professor of Meteorology John P Monteverdi I wake up a bit disoriented Where am I Then I remember some generic La Quinta in Lincoln Nebraska Suddenly a sense of excitement begins to enfold me This is likely to be a big day The setup is almost perfect for tornadic supercell thunderstorms Three hours later in the library at Beatrice Nebraska My chase partner Thom Trimble and I join our companions Chuck and Vickie Doswell Huddled around our laptop screens looking for the telltale signs on satellite images of cumulus clouds developing somewhere southeast of Hastings That was our forecast So we poise waiting Waiting Waiting Then in a blink of an eye cumulus clouds begin to explode on satellite just where we thought they would In a flash we are on the road driving west Then there in the distance we see it the telltale lowered base hanging ponderously from the parent cumulonimbus which had drifted southeastward from its birthplace after expanding three times its area in one hour Just as quickly there is a tornadic whirl at its base our forecast was good We re here to witness its formation Things happen so quickly In five minutes we have a fully grown tornado I drop my camera and have to fumble around to get it on a tripod again I look up and the tornado has a brother And in another five minutes a sister A quick look around Do we have exit roads at right angles to the tornadoes paths Can we escape if need be In that second the first tornado becomes a monster Fortunately it passes to the other side of a small cluster of distant farm buildings The first part of the task
