Today I was just looking at the board seeing all the listings and reading over all the titles... I am just one of many stories here. Just another caregiver trying to get by, trying to give comfort to a spouse who doesn't deserve to be treated like this in my opinion. Or... do any of you or your spouses that I see in this list on this discussion board.
It's been a rough week for my husband and I, mind you some of you are in way deeper than we are and I acknowledge that. Some of you have just started your battle and I feel for you, but that's our story isn't it? My husband has finally come to grips with not being able to work which means telling his employer of over 30 years he needs to be on short term disability. The guys have been sooooooo supportive but it certainly has shaken my husband. One more week of radiation and it will be a game of wait and see, more tests and results for brain scans. The doctor has finally gotten a couple of pain drugs to work on my husband's head pain and has added a steroid for swelling. The confused speech and thought process is still in place so we don't know if this will in time go away or not.
So for now my husband is taking naps when needed, and I help him with his emails and reading. His "honey do" list is back up on the wall to keep him busy during the day so hopefully the sun will come back out and warm us back up and spring will finally come out to play.
Family visitors tomorrow, house cleaning... and back to work.
