I've been reading and posting on the Esophageal Cancer discussion board but I guess it's time I post something on here. My husband of almost 42 years died on October 24, 2011 - just 15 weeks after his cancer diagnosis. Nine days after his diagnosis, he suffered a severe stroke. It broke my heart to watch him work his butt off to recover his speech and his mobility after the stroke knowing he had this awful cancer that would more than likely take his life. He was 64 years old and I miss him so much. He was a hunter so typically he was gone a lot at this time of year anyway but this is so different. The other night I actually caught myself thinking he'd be calling soon to check in.
