    Oh No

    I am her husband of 40 years. She is the one I have always turned to for support, comfort, advice, the only one who has ever really loved me. She had a huge and horrendous surgery two weeks ago, is awaiting chemo to begin, and the PET scan and CAT scan just found more cancer -- A LOT more cancer. She is the most gentle soul I have ever met. I am powerless; helpless, alone. I feel like crying all the time, and yet must try to not let her see this affect me, as that would be selfish, a word I am long familiar with. I can't even focus on my relationship with God, as this disease from XXX distracts and impedes me. Where do I turn?
