It's been a very emotional few days for Nelson. The news that the MRI was clear is an amazing blessing. We are so happy the treatment worked! But he has been cycling between joy that the cancer is dead and sadness because he still feels soooo bad. He cries frequently and is just a bundle of confused emotions.
I also go back to work next week after almost three months home caring for him. He's nervous, sad and afraid. He can't really verbalized exactly what it is that he is afraid of, but I feel sure he is mainly insecure in his ability to care for himself totally.
Did anyone else cycle through these mixed emotions after getting the NED call? Any tips from the patients on how your caregiver helped ease you through the change of being alone while they worked?
Thank you for being here. I love the community here. It's wonderful not being 'alone' in this battle.
