My husband has terminal lung cancer & Alzheimer. Don't know which will get him first. I have been caring for him for 17 years. Started out with Prostate cancer, followed by Celiac Disease (Lost 40 lbs - he weighed only 120 lbs. The celiac disease was diagnosed the morning of Nov 6, 2002. That evening he had a major stroke that left many residual effects.
He was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer (cannot be treated due to other health issues in June of 2009. Now he has Alzheimer. After 17 years of caring for him I have decided to place in a long term care facilities. I hate to admit that I cannot do something. But I suffer from bi-polar and the doctor was worried about me and convinced me to put him in care.
First step was taken yesterday.

It is a long and complicated process and I could use all the support that I can get.
