Today my husband starts second line chemo for extensive small cell lung cancer which they say is in his liver now. I don't know how he is going to get through this, and I don't think somehow the doctor does either. He sleeps for almost 15 hours and sometimes more on any given day and eats very little. This is our chance for more time. It is funny when they give the option of 'more time'. Do they think that this time is quality. I get tired of hearing about making every day count and doing exactly what you want. How can we do that when he can hardly do anything without being exhausted? I probably know the answer to my own question in that we must stay positive and make the most of each happy moment we have. Take care of yourselves all who read this and thanks for giving me the opportunity for sharing. Jeaneil

Hi Jeaneil. Sending love and cyber hugs your way. I know exactly where you are coming from. My darling husband passed away in November after a 27 month battle with colorectal cancer. He had 47 chemo treatments only finishing the week before he passed away. I know its silly to say make every day count when they are so exhausted but just be there for him, talk to him about anything and everything and enjoy the cuddles you can have.Let him know who much you love him and what he means to you. There will never be enough days but as Lisa Swayze says in her book Its Worth Fighting For. Take care and blog here whenever you need to. Regards Gail xxx
