I have been taking care of my husband for ten years. He has non hodgkins lymphoma. Chemo destroyed his heart's pumping capacity to 20%. He has trouble breathing. He only eats small amounts of food. Now the lymphoma is growing. His abdomen is huge. He has had two hernia operations in five months. The lymphoma is pushing on his intestines and kidneys.
He lashes out at me. I am his caregiver. I do almost everything. He complains. He never says thank you. It is rough. My family is 3000 miles away.
How long will his abdomen continue to grow? What will happen? Why can't he be nicer to me?
