QUOTE: Haven't been on this site for ages. My (now) husband was diagnosed in 2004 (age 25) with colon cancer - mets to lung and liver. Since then we got married, had a baby and have another one due in 5 weeks. Unfortunately my husband is unlikely to live to see the birth of his baby as his poor body just can't take anymore. However he has lived life to the full for the last 5 years. His liver is finally failing and the cancer has spread to his bones and stomach. I know this all sounds very depressing, but in fact he has been inspirational and until May of this year was working full-time. I wish all of you the very best of luck and plan to enjoy every precious moment of the week or two that I have left with my beloved husband.

End of Quote

I'm so sorry to hear about your husband. It does sound like he's lived fully the last five years. Congrats on the wedding and two children. I'm sure you'll keep their Daddy alive in their hearts forever. Wish there was more I could say or do, but I just wanted to give you a cyber hug.

    Your husband sounds like a wonderful man who took the past 5 years and made them joyful and glorious. A marriage, children, a life lived in love. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers these next few weeks. Saying goodbye to your husband and welcoming your new baby.... so much sorrow and joy together. I am thinking of you.
