Hi, this is my first post. very new to this my husband was diagnosed with melanoma 3 months ago. Since then he has had to operations, the last a month ago. On Friday he was admitted again due to an infection, we were told it was only for 24 hours but that was 3 days ago we don't when he is coming home. Each day I go in to take him home and we're told the next day. I'm having trouble coping, I feel like everything is out of control and keep over thinking everything. AND keep thinking about my husband when I have two adult children to think about. I know he is in the best place but I want him home. I feel lost. my husband will be starting immunotherapy in a few weeks once the infection is clear. This is has shown me that we are heading towards uncertain times with him being well. I'm a planner, an organiser, I love looking ahead weeks and knowing what is happening BUT this has thrown me. I just want to cry but I want to be strong for him. Im trying to keep it together but feel like I'm losing it. ive decided to make a list of flexible plans - things my husband and I can do when he is well, just so I feel like I have some control. its such an emotional roller coaster, I'm so up and down. Any advice please.
