I'm so sorry to hear about what is happening to you and your husband. You didn't mention if you have kids or not. I'm not a care giver but I'm a husband,father and grandfather with cancer. My responsibilities and role as head of my family didn't change because I have it. I believe my responsibilities are now more important than ever. Everything I have stood for and tried teaching my family is going to be tested. I refuse to let this change who I'm. In my house one is allowed to be mean. All eyes are on me. Do I really want my grandchildren to think that everything we believe as a family now doesn't matter . I believe cancer is harder on the people who loves the one with it. I see it in my wife's eyes and half smiles. She is trying hard to make this easier for me. And I hate that she is scared and unsure about our future So I don't plan on adding any more problems for her. Our oldest son told me the other day that he's glad that I'm the one with cancer. Because he knows I'm going to use it to make our family stronger. Its times like this that we have to man up. I'm so thankful that my wife and kids are healthy. I have no problems in the world as long as it stays that way.. I hope your husband does some serious research before he causes you more pain. Stage 4 doesnt mean he will die . But he's living like he has nothing to live for . There are to many people that are alive today that was told they had 6 months . Heck my doctor told my wife and I that I could still die from cancer or the treatment. I smiled and told her that I'm alive today and that all that matters. Today is a new day.
