Oh, I hurt for you, and I'm ANGRY for you. Darn them. Darn them for giving a prognosis at all. Don't they know that MOST of the time THEY are WRONG. Sometimes people live longer, sometimes people shorter lives. No one fits in a little tiny box. No one.
Bridget, you just keep doing what you are doing, honey, live a full and wonderful life, and we all know you'll do what you were meant to do, and live the life you were meant to live, DESPITE what THEY have to say.
(6 years ago my husband was given 5 to 10 years to live, after a terrible prognosis 17 years before that. He's stable, with his 3rd cancer diagnosis, and may well live a normal lifespan. I'm grateful now, that "prognosis" taught me to live in the now, but at the time....oh...it was rough. Tuesday is his 36th birthday.)
