This is my first post, I have been watching you all for a while now. I’ve silently shed tears for you and rejoiced with you and finally decided it was time to make my presence known. I’m a spouse of stage 3, diagnosed May 1st. We have less than week of chemo/radiation left, then wait for the PET scan and hopefully schedule surgery for later this summer.
I must say, you are a courageous bunch people and I hope that I can rise to (or at least come close to) the level of class, character and grace that I have witnessed here. Everyone of you are an inspiration to me, whether the news is good or bad and even right to the very end. Reading your posts has helped me try to come to terms with this dreadful monster disease. While I won’t say that I’ve actually come to terms, I just know that I have to do whatever is necessary and I think I’m up for the challenge. So I guess I just want to say thanks.
