My husband goes in for his 6 month PET scan on Friday. He is very nervous as his cough is getting almost as bad as it was in the beginning when I took him to the ER. He is easily fatigued, has increasing shortness of breath, on occasion has low grade temperatures, bloody noses, he is cold most of the time, and in genera,l just doesn't feel good. I have been trying to stay positive reminding him to not think the worst until he's told the worst! He has been through a lot in the last few months - chemo and radiation - he needs time to recover.
I, as the caregiver, had to get some antidepressants and antianxietals because this has all been a lot for me to deal with... him too I'm sure. I have talked to him about maybe having the Dr prescribe something to help him keep his spirits up but he refuses - doesn't want to take any more pills than he has to. They seemed to have helped me through the biggest slump - I feel stronger now and feel as though I am getting sleep at night so I have more strength to help him.
Thank you for listening and please pray for good news.
