In October last year he was 112 kgs.  Today 3rd of April he is 59 Kgs.  In december of 2012, The doctor did a stomach operation on him.  Closed him up and told the family that they could not take the tumour out and they only were giving him 3 months to live.  The actual surgeon came in and said  Maybe 3 months to 2 years and that they will recommend Chemo just to give him an extension on life.  but I have been praying so hard for Jesus to give life to my husbands body.  But I am worried about him having his third chemo treatment tomorrow and then if he doesnt have chemo tomorrow he will cry.  He really wants to have it so badly and  I said "Let nobody stop it this is what he wants."  As a wife I dont know if anyone realises the anguish I feel right now in my heart as I watch my husband wither away and I still believing that God can perform a miracle on my husband. My husband is so positive and even said to me "If after this chemo treatment and the doctors say there is nothing more they can do then my husband said he will finally try other methods... anything.  Whenever I have made suggestions, he has just brushed it aside.. I suppose when you are suffering the process yourself  Doctors become like Gods to cancer patients and no matter what you say, they will trust them more but when I look at my husband all I want to do is growl the doctors.

Hi, Gin,

How's the third chemo?

My husband had to wait for a week for his eighth chemo last week because of his white blood cell was too low. At some point, chemo wouldn't be an option if patients are too weak. My husband has tried other alternatives, including Chinese herbs: Reishi.

My husband and I are keeping your husband in our prayers.

Best wishes!

Jenny
