Hi Jsmc, I am so sorry you and your family are going thru this. My husband was recently diagnosed with appendix cancer that has metastasized thru small intestines and large, his omentum and three lymph nodes. I also was getting the verbal abuse. Everyone else cared about him and I was a piece of poop. I do everything for him. Me, myself and I. I felt like he hated me. Well the nurse noticed a few looks he was giving me and when I came out of the ladies room, the nurse started asking me questions. His next visit they lowered his steroid and he is a new man. I mean as far as I haven’t been sworn at, or talked to like I was a piece of crap. It is so hard because they are the ones that have the actual cancer, but we are also going thru it with them. No we don’t know how they feel, but we are also hurting almost as much. I totally understand they are scared. We are scared also. I have three older kids but it still doesn’t take away the pain my kids are dealing with. No matter what age. Let’s face it Cancer Sucks! My heart goes out to you. Your wife believe me knows what a great husband she married, and daddy you are. It probably hurts her that you have to take on things she has had to do being mom. Just keep on being the great person you are being. It’s definitely ok to be angry. I’m angry my husband is 55. It’s even ok to go in the garage like I do and cry. I hope this helps you to know your not alone. Keep us posted you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Traci Renee
