Sonja, As with all the others here, I am sorry to hear that you are having to go through this. Having lost my mother in law, a friend and another friend currently, all to cancer, I can empathize with your situation. I cannot imagine how difficult it must be with a spouse however. It's the sort of thing that makes the rest of our issues seem smaller. If any needs arise that we can help with, please post them here so people can have the opportunity to bless you. Our prayers are with you as you do the most important thing, caring for and loving one another as best you can. You certainly don't need to apologize for that.
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
I pray this over your household in these trying days.
Today is the Tomorrow you worried about Yesterday

Sonja, no need for an apology. You are doing what is your first priority and we can all understand that. So sorry to hear that there was no success in Houston. I went out to read Jeff's blog - the stories are priceless. I will keep him in my prayers.
What Cancer Cannot Do
Cancer is so limited. It cannot cripple love. It cannot shatter hope. It cannot corrode faith. It cannot eat away peace. It cannot destroy confidence. It cannot kill friendship. It cannot shut out memories. It cannot silence courage. It cannot invade the soul. It cannot reduce eternal life. It cannot quench the spirit. - Author Unknown
Sonja, you are doing a beautiful thing by taking care of your husband so lovingly. Cherish the time you have together. I'm keeping you both in my thoughts.

I wasn't hear before but I am still keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. Please take every moment and enjoy. I lost my MIL to lung cancer 3 years ago. But we were able to have 1 month to connect before she went to be with God. I will never forget it.

No apologies needed! Cancer can be relentless, but it can never take away our love and spirit. I will pray for comfort, peace, and time together. God bless you and your husband! Deb

Hi Everyone! Most of you don't remember me but those of you who do know this was my team a few months back and I disappeared without a trace. I want to Apologize from the very bottom of my heart for my absence. We had to go to Houston with my fiance/now husband for a last ditch effort to aid his fight with cancer, so that was my entire focus. I had no computer down there and was unable to leave his side, so I couldn't contact anyone here.
Unfortunately, we did not win that fight and are now back in the cities an utilizing Hospice to care for him whatever his final time is. Thank you all for everything and all the prayers those of you who knew sent our way.
