Hi, My husband has head and neck cancer with an unknown primary. He just had a feeding tube put in today. Tomorrow he goes for surgery to pull some teeth, because they are going to radiate his head and neck. Everything has taken so long to come about. In a couple of weeks he starts both radiation and chemotherapy. I am so scared. We have been married for over 25 years. It seems that I am the only one to take care of him, even the children are being selfish right now, i do not know if it is because they do not want to deal with it or not. On top of that I am taking care of his aging mother who is 82. I also have a job that I am trying to keep throughout all of this. Sometimes i just want to crawl up in a hole and give up. I know that cant happen because my husband needs me and that is all that keeps me going.
