Hi RB - sorry to hear about your dh. My dh was diagnosed with untreatable lung cancer in 2010 and passed away in June 2012. I pray for you and your family in hoping for the best results possible. I know how difficult this time can be.
Take care of yourself.
HOPE is not pretending that there's never any sorrow - It's the knowledge that our troubles will be overcome tomorrow. It's the inner strength we call on to sustain us now and then, till our problems lie behind us and we are happy again
I am so sorry to hear about your husband's diagnosis. I will keep him and all your family in my prayers. My husband was diagnosed 3.5 years ago with pancreatic cancer, had surgery and cancer is gone from what remains of his pancreas, but he now has mets to his lungs. He too sleeps, a lot, but otherwise feels pretty good and is on Folfirinox treatments. I had lost most of my excess weight prior to his diagnosis, but afterward stopped exercising and gained most of it back. I'm now back to slowly taking the weight back off.
My best to you and your entire family.

Hi! My husband of almost 20 years has Stage IV Lung Cancer. He was diagnosed 3.5 years ago and has been on a clinical trial drug for the majority of the time. His cancer in his lung is essentially gone, but he has 4 tumors in his brain. We have 2 children (14 and 12). He goes to work every day, but spends a lot of time at home sleeping.
After my husband was diagnosed I gained almost 40 lbs. - but I've lost 20+ in the last year. I've finally gotten serious about getting healthy and taking time for myself. Since 1/1/13 I'm down 10 lbs. and I've been walking/biking regularly.
I'd love to hear how others manage dealing with their spouse and kids and cancer.
