Unhappy DH has Cancer

Just got the results back this week that DH has cancer.
A rare kind at that.
The last few days have been a total blur.
We go to see the surgical oncologist this week as well as the radiologist.
I feel numb.
The DD's are taking it better than I expected. I need to be strong but I am glad that I have the DIS to listen to me.

I am very sorry to hear this news, it must be very difficult for your whole family.

Please know that we are here to listen anytime you want to 'talk', sometimes it helps to have somewhere to go where you don't need to be quite so strong.

I will be thinking of your family this week as you all try to deal with this difficult diagnosis

My husband had testicular cancer several years back. At first we were in shock when we heard the "C" word. We thought that was an automatic death sentence.
After a successful surgery, he has remained cancer free for over 10 years now. It is amazing what they can do nowadays. Don't ever give up hope. Keep the faith, and trust in the doctors who will be taking care of him.

May God bless your husband with a successful outcome. I do know what it feels like to be in your shoes. Don't let those negative thoughts stay in your head. I know I was frightened at first.

Keep us updated on the options he has. Don't forget to always get a second opinion. We actually had a few.....and they all wanted to take a different approach. We did what we felt was the best at the time. I'm glad we didn't listen to a couple of the other doctors who only wanted to do more surgery.
Praying for you....

Just wanted to let you know that you are all in my prayers. I am so sorry that you received this news. Keep us posted!

Doctor's Appointments

Has been a very long week.
DH had another MRI and cat scan this week.
(found another tumor on his back)
The game plan so far is to begin with 5 weeks of intense radiation therepy.
After this surgery to remove the tumor(s).
Followed by another round of radiation.
Keeping our spirits up but some times it is hard.

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers.

So sorry to hear this news.

I know its so hard to be strong when you feel like everything is crashing in around you.

My dh had to be the strong one and our ds took it as well as could be.

Rally those around you who can give you comfort and can help, like driving, making meals etc.

My church family cooked us alot of meals since our extended family is mostly deceased and live out of state.

Take a note book and write notes etc. And a calendar etc. for testing etc. Those things alone and trying to remember everything gets overwhelming.

Wishing your dh all the best. One day at a time. Blessings to you.

so sorry your dh and your family is going through this.

Cancer sucks, I know it because I have it too

I really like how your dh is keeping a journal.

Glad your dd seems to be handling it.

I am sure it is so stressful with working and such a long trip for the radiation etc.

Just take it one day at a time. I am glad what you said about your faith.

My faith brings me a a lot of comfort too.

Prayers for your dh and your family.

Prayers for a successful surgery tomm. for your dh.

Hope your dh heals quickly and that he wont be in too much pain or discomfort. I found out that the morphine pump was my friend in the hospital for sure!

A disney trip is a great thing to look forward to on the road to recovery.

Wishing him all the best.
