Peanuts, All I can say is my thoughts are with u and ur husband. I hopr u are able to have many good days in what time you have left. Such horrible news of the short time frame left together. Cancer really is a horrible disease, it causes so much pain and leaves fragments of pain and sadness for those left behind...... Take care of yourself and I'm sending u a huge hug! Rubes
