Hello! My name is Sue. I am new to this site as of 2 weeks ago. I have been reading everything I can.I have been afraid to start a topic as to not be taken seriously. My husband has been diagnoisied with colon rectal cancer with 60%liver involvement. He has been undergoing chemo since Nov.2003. He has had 4 CT Scan and the last one 2 weeks ago showed that the chemo is finally working and the cancer in his liver is getting smaller. My husband Bob is such a fighter I am so proud of him!! The Doctor's say that his treatments are not to cure but to try and give him more time. I don't really have anyone to talk to about this so I thought I would try the super people that I have been reading about. I know that the power of positive thinking is exstreamly important!! After we got the results and the doctor steped out for a minute my husband yelled out "I'm going to live" I was very happy but also afraid to say anything as I DIDN'T want his fram of mind to change. Is it possible??? I know that it is but I am afraid to think it. We have been blown out of the water so many times since day I. I don't know what to really think anymore. He is so up now that I can't talk to him about what if. I won't!! My husband is a very proud man and very independent. He has work so hard to get to this point. I am at a lose as to keeping an open mind and being realistic. I love him with everything I have and don't want him to have to worry about anything!! He is self employed and all he wanted to do wa get back on his feet and get to work. He is now working when he is able and that has been the best medicine for him. He is not saying he is useless anymore. Can anyone help me understand what is going through his mind. I'm sorry for going on I just didn't know how to put it into words. We are taking one day at a time and laughing as much as possible. I love hearing him happy and laughing again.
Also, I posted in the caregivers section and they put up a trashcan symble? What does that mean?
I AM SERIOUS!!!
