May God give you enough strength both for yourself and your wife! Life can at times be tough and only our faith and will power helps us sail through! I am happy to note that you are trying to stay positive.
YOU CARE PROVIDERS TALK ABOUT HOW TO DEAL WITH THOSE WHO HAVE CANCER. HOWEVER NOT ONCE HAVE I HEARD HOW TO DEAL WITH THE CANCER AFTERMATH.UNLESS YOU'VE BEEN THERE .HEAR THIS .... TODAY'S DOCTORS HAVE IT '****** UP' THESE PEOPLE ARE GIVEN FALSE HOPE AND MORE DOPE THAN WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TO KILL TWENTY. YET ADVISE LOVED ONES THAT ITS OK TO GIVE MORE PAIN MED'S IF REQUESTED. HOW MUCH AND HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET STRUNG OUT?? IS IT CLOSE TO OR SAME AS HEROIN? IN SHORT,WHAT MEDICAL STAFF 'ARE NOT' TELLING ,IS THAT THE FACT IS ,WE AS LOVE ONES ARE IN FACT HELPING TO SPEED UP THE DYING PROCESS .WHILE WE THINK WE ARE MAKING THEM COMFORTABLE. BULL **** ! my email is ***@****
Thanks, I've taken careful note of your valuable advice.
We are continuing treatment and hope to see more improvement in the CT planned for September/October... not sure what drives the exact date.
I continue to try to emphasize the positive, and to remind myself "life is short" and there is not time to "sweat the small stuff". I think this makes me easier to live with and that adds to her quality of life and, I hope, strengthens her body's defenses.
All the above applies to my mental state too. I suffer from atrial fibrillation and know that reduces my life's expectancy. As I was told before I was old enogh to understand: "growing old ain't fo sissies".
