I am new here and to have to be here is frightening; I never thought I would be facing such a situation.
My husband was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. I do not the specific type, but it is in the upper lobe of his left lung and a small bit may be present in a small area of his other. That is all I have been told and he knows not much more because we are in the preliminary stages of this. But, the doctor who discovered has stated that he may have a year; that is a speculation based on statistics I guess and yes it scares me.
But my heart tells me do not give up yet and I have placed this in God's hands. I have read the forums here as well as others and I have seen that people have beat the odds even when they were told there was no hope. There is hope in everything even this. My husband is a fighter and said he he is going to fight with all he has in him as he is fighting for me-I consider that to be a very positive attitude and knowing my husband and knowing how much he lives for me I know it will be a powerful factor in this battle.
He is being sent to a very good facility one of the best I am told. Yes this is hard on me especially being that I am having to go it alone right now. He has to concentrate on working at doing all he can do and that is what I want him to do. I asked God to help convince him to go to the doctor after he was feeling bad for some time and God persuaded him and my heart tells me God is the motivating factor in all of this. Something inside me spoke and told me "get your husband to go, for it will be something that will make a powerful difference."
What is also hard is that I also found out my sister died a year ago and when I told my husband I said 'everyone is leaving me" and out of the blue and with a powerful voice he said to me "I am not leaving you baby." I don't know what that meant but my heart tells me to hold on to that very statement.
I thank you all for listening and any support you can offer is appreciated. Please pray for us.
