My hubby was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia just before our first wedding anniversary. Was given last rites. However, two bone marrow transplants, full body radiation 3 days in a row, gall stones, aspergillosis, Krohn’s Disease and assorted other crap, later, he survived. I couldn’t be upset about the ruination of our marriage (became nurse, not wife) or the loss of ability to have the children or our financial ruin, because he lived and thats all that was important. 15 years later, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, terminal. I lost him 6 weeks ago after a long fight of 15 months. Now Im just angry, sad and damaged. Has anyone else had this happen?
