    Hi Bug, I've been thinking of you and your husband. How did his surgery go? I know you must be up to your eyeballs with caretaking these days. Hugs!

      Hi, Rustysmom. Surgery went well. The neurosurgeon said he removed what he could see. Unfortunately, the preliminary pathology report indicated a glioblastoma. We are devastated, Rustysmom. We haven't quite wrapped our heads around it. I'm trying to stay upbeat - not being Polly Anna but not assuming the worst either. The current plan is for chemo and radiation to start in about a month.
      The doc wants to give the incision time to heal. Thank you so much for checking in. I (we) can really use the support of our friends. Hugs to you, too.

      Oh, Bug, that is a tough diagnosis. And I know the treatment is going to continue to be challenging. We all know how this can go, but the treatments are getting better, and there has been a lot of success stories. I have a friend whose brother had this diagnosis and went through treatment and has had a very good outcome. It's been about 3 years, and he's NED. This could be your husband's story, also. Please don't forget to take care of yourself, too.

      Thank you for your support, Rustysmom. And we really appreciate hearing about a very good outcome. We'll take all the good stories we can get. We're struggling but, you know, pressing on. Hugs.
