Husband Has Brain Tumor

Hi everyone. A couple of months ago I had just started planning our daughter's first trip to WDW. I haven't been around lately because on the Monday before Thanksgiving my husband was diagnosed with a primary brain tumor on his left temporal lobe. It is a Grade 3 and he is currently receiving radiation and chemotherapy. They cannot operate because he would lose his speech. He is 38 years old. Our daughter is 2. I would appreciate any prayers that you might send our way. For now our trip is still going to go forward, although I may need some advice if we find we have to move it for some reason. We will have a better sense of what is happening after he finishes his treatments and has a scan done a month later (in March). Things have been very difficult as I am trying to hold down a full time job, care for our daughter while my husband is not able to help like he used to do, and care for him as well. I know many people here have dealt with cancer themselves and for family members, and I just appreciate any thoughts, prayers or even advice. I really enjoy this community so just wanted to share.
