Well - I've been off and running for a while. My husband has now been cancer-free since May of 2006. We were on the verge of a divorce the last time I "vented". Finally, about 2 months ago , a "friend" of mine really insulted my husband and his recent actions to me. That was the straw that built my camel's back. I realized what a wonderful man I married, how hard he's fighting, and tried to see through his eyes some of his daily struggles. I finished hanging pictures in our new home, began cooking more with him in mind (not just our 3 young children) and saw him for him. We had a long 2 hour discussion and cried about how we felt, our fears, and his prior moods. He sees the light, but so do I. We may only have 3, 4, or 5 more years before this strikes again, but we can laugh a lot in that time. We laugh at everything. We actually play "pick up sticks" with our bills. Those on top get paid - all others can wait. But we survived Stage IV inoperable cancer - now we tackle the Mt. Everest of bills. That too will be conquered. So - Smile :) and LOL daily!!! Good luck to all and say your prayers - if nothing else it's one person to vent to who won't yell back, but who can help more than anyone or anything else!!
