Thanks to everyone. Your thoughts and prayers help me try and stay positive

DH and I were back at the hospital on Tuesday hoping to get the radiation schedule.
Nope
The catscan he had last week showed some spots on his liver.
Headed back for an ultrasound tomorrow.
If all is okay we will then start radiation. If not we are looking at a revised/new/altered treatment plan.
I realize that the good Lord will not give you more than you can handle....but wow...I feel like I may break at any moment.
Thanks for the vent

I cannot begin to imagine how difficult things are for you and your family, waiting and wondering for medical results is scary and exhausting.

Sending you and your husband a BIG koala cuddle from 'down under

Best wishes and thanks for the update.................I shall be sending lots of healing thoughts your way.

Yeah ? then I wanna have a talk with him , first my 14 year old was diagnosed with bone cancer , then my mother died and now my husband is the one with terminal cancer . He needs to stop being so generous with me !

I had severe PTSD after daughter's diagnosis , now it's worse. I am sorry about your husband's diagnosis , I know exactly how you feel.....

I also have a tough time when someone says that the Lord does not give you more than you can handle. Someone who takes their own life obviously had more than they could handle.

I would love to have a talk with him. But faith is all I have at the moment and without that I think I would have to be checked into the "funny farm".

I try not to go there
We have had a suicide in our family and it is something that I do not fully understand.
At the moment my faith is all I have to unconditionally lean on and I believe that we as a family will make it.

Tomorrow will be the end of week one for radiation. Only four more weeks to go.
So far so good. DH felt sick the first treatment but has been ok since then.The tumors being radiated DH says are sore but not painful.

DH has started a journal that is being kept on the living room table.
It is nice because he is writing things down that he would not normally talk about. Anyone is welcome to read it and write down there thoughts as well.
It might seem weird but it is working for us.

Keeping positive

Now I'm posting on your thread, as you posted on mine!

I like the journal idea for your family.

Keep us posted on how your DH is doing with the radiation, and keep the faith!

Only one more treatment this week
That makes three more weeks to go.

It has been a really busy week.
DD has finished grade 10
DH is pushing himself to work fulltime. He is managing ending the day with his radiation treatment. I drive there and back with him as it is three hours round trip each day with traffic.
I have been able to modify my work schedule to be able to do this during the week and am working weekends as well.

Things look positive so far. We got a positive report from the radiolgy doctor today and his skin has not burned to badly yet

Your post today sounds upbeat & positive - I'm SO GLAD to read it! I hope you're feeling your spirits lifted a little bit, even if just for a day, you need that for your own mental health! Here's hoping that you & your family continue down this positive path.

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 sorry to hear your news.

I hope they caught it early and he makes a full recovery.

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.

I'm so impressed that your DH continues to work full time & do his treatments - and that you are able to help him with such a long drive. Keep moving forward!!!!!
