The time is soon.

After nearly 12 months my husband's Cancer has spread to many areas of his body. He is becoming weaker on some days and others he is still more like his old self. This week we have been advised that there is little time left, probably 2 months approx. I am devastated. It has been a long 12 months with many downs and not so many ups. What a journey and learning curve for all of us. After 33 years I do not know how I am going to go on without him, yet I suppose that I will. Many decisions to be made and I know that now I have to start letting people into my home for pallative care reasons. While we have been going through the different treatments, diets, natural medicines and anything else that we could come across I guess it really is only now that the harsh reality has set in. I keep wishing that I would wake up and it will all be a bad dream. Thank you to those out there that have contibuted to this forum as there have been many times that I have read an article or response and it has been so helpful to what has been going on in our lives. Keep writing everyone because you just never know when somebody will be lifted from a few well placed words.

Thanks Mags and Clo for your kind words. The reality of the situation is almost becoming overwhelming at present. Palliative Care are coming tomorrow to assess everything, while I know I need care it is also daunting. Too real to deal with at times. Take care all.
