Hi. My name is tammy and my 51 year old husband has stage four lung cancer. It has spread to his kidney and brain, they have done radiation on both but now say he is terminal. I still do not accept that altho I see him getting weaker all the time. I just do not know what i would do without him. A few weeks ago my mom was told she has stage three esophageal cancer. She is starting chemo and radiation on Monday with the same doctors my husband has so the three of us have been doing a lot of the dr. appts together, it has just worked out that way. It is hard because I want to be with my husband every minute that I am not working and also with my mom while she is at her appts. Another thing that drives me nuts is people always telling me how strong I am and how do I do the things I do, that they would not be able to. I do what I have to do because i have not been given a choice and i love the both dearly. Believe me I do not feel like I am strong, I feel that my world is falling apart. How would you respond to those people? I would never be mean, I know that they mean well.
