You've had some disappointing news, but you are still better off than before because now you are both in this fight and and can take the steps necessary to stay in the fight mode. You don't have to figure out the whole process all at once or worry about the "what-ifs" which can be a crazy-maker. Just take each day and each step one at a time and then go on to the next. Write down any questions for your doctors or for us here. Writing things down releases them from your brain until you need to get back to them. And you know you have a whole bunch of compassionate and knowledgeable people here for support for both of you any time you check in, day or night.

Hi everyone. I wanted to check back in with you all since it has been several weeks. A lot has happened since we last spoke/wrote smile. My husband has cycled through some of the major stages of grief...as I am sure you all are familiar with this. To make a LONG story short- he will begin radiation and chemo on Monday the 29th. I will be writing a new topic in the "medications,treatment and procedures" forum, as I (we) have questions that I hope some of you may be able to answer.

Thank you all for your thoughts, comments, prayers and just being there to listen over the past several months.
