So my cancer is spreading. Doctor still feels that I can get this into remission or at least that's the goal. In my gut I feel like I'm going to be okay and will be around for a long time. My husband in the past always knew I would beat this and when I would talk about possibly of not making it he would beg me not to think like that.
Here we are with the cancer progressing and for the first time I can see in my husbands face that he doesn't think I'm going to make it. I told him I would and he is praying I will but I see his confidence is gone and he is very scared.
It's taken him three years to realize I may not make it. I need advice. Do I console him that it might be the case or do I reassure him that I strongly feel I will be okay. I don't want to give him false hope but did tell him I was planning on fighting as long and hard as I could. It's just so hard seeing this new acceptance of reality on his face. It makes me feel like I am being naive.
