    I have actually had this happen to me when I was sick years ago.  Obviously the Dr. was wrong and God prevailed, but in thinking about this at this time in my life, I would do what I am doing now - Talk Jesus to all my kids, pray for them, write about Christ to the masses and sing, sing, sing. 

    Oh and I would have to teach my husband to cook, lest he starve! LOL

    I would spend every moment of it with my family. My husband whom I adore, and my children who are my world. My Sister, her husband and my nephews and nieces, all 7 of them. Why would I waste time doing anything else? Family, next to God, is the most important thing in the world. I am already right with my LORD GOD and SAVIOR!

    I asked this question in my philosophy classes a number of years ago. Examples from a generated list included spending more time with family, seeing friends more often, making things right with God. The list became quite extensive. My final question to my students was: Why wait until you have only a few months to live to change your life?  I ask the same question of those who have responded here. Why wait to make things right?

    I would do exactly as I am doing. Live life to the fullest possible, appreciate each moment God has graciously allotted me, and be in good relations with all I encounter. I thank God each day, that it has pleased Him that I should have had life and then called to serve in all the many capacities He purposed for me.   Blessing to all!

    Wow...great question!  I had ovarian cancer at age 19, married and 5 months pregnant at the time.  I had some serious decisions to make.  Truly when you think or know your time is limited you question everything...your life, your faith, where are you going for eternity and so on and so forth.  I wanted to enjoy every moment and treasure every moment I had left with my family.  I didn't much care about all the things I thought I would ...such as places I wanted to see and vacations to go on.  My focus was on family and leaning on my saviour, Jesus Christ to carry me. My life has been filled with so many miracles.  The fact that I am alive is one of them!

    I wouldn't wait until I had only 2 months to live. I have lived my life for the Lord God and have asked Him to forgive Him of my sins for a long time and do it daily so I'm already ready to go. But I would make sure my family knows of all the things I want done if I only had 2 months to live so they have nothing to worry about when I go. I want nothing for my family to care for except for us to love each other and be in each other's presence at that time. That's what counts. Love and caring.

    Just for the sheer novelty of the experience, I would go sky diving. Then I would use the rest of my time to travel the world. I would go anywhere and everywhere I could. I would visit Greece and Rome, the exotic reaches of India, the Mountains of Tibet, the bustling cities of Japan, the Great Wall of China, anywhere and everywhere I could get to before I died. Of course, I hope to make these trips anyway, just at a more relaxed pace.

    First and foremost i would grab my video camera and record special messages for my children. For their important birthdays weddings etc.
    I would also buy gifts for those specific occassion for each of my children!
    Next I would spend all of my time with my children. Taking them to all the places we have dreamed of going and allowing them to stay up late while I read them the great novels that I had always wanted to.
    Late at night I would be with my husband and always be loving towards him. Even if he made me angry I would simply say I love you and leave it as such.
    Last I would rob the richest bank on earth. I would hide the cash and let my husband divide it up amongst my children, that way I can leave the world knowing that they are ok.
