We are just beginning this journey. My husband had surgery to remove a high grade glioblastoma a month ago and begins 6 weeks of chemo and radiation this coming week.(Followed by six months of chemo after a month break.)

I guess we do the best we can....one day at a time. It's pretty gut wrenching though.
