    hello, My husband Liam who is currently in Belfast Ireland, went back to take care of his mom who had a stroke about a year ago & wasn't expected to live. In Dec of 2012 Liam went to the hospital due to bad abdomen pains & losing weight. The hospital kept him for a couple weeks & gave him reflux acid pills then turned him loose. Back in Jan 2013 Liam went back in again, told them it wasnt helping & the pain is getting worse, so they gave him pain pills & told him to come back in a couple weeks. Long story short, they FINALLY did some tests (not even sure which ones) & came up with cancer.. Liver, pancreatic & stomach. Liam has had his belly drained 4 times now & each time it's at least 8 liters of fluid. On Feb 14th I flew out there to go to the doctor to get the diagnoses. (we have a business here in Colorado) The doc said there is nothing that they can do & they are sorry. Am I wrong in being so angry & hurt it's not even funny. Liam is only 56 & I am 45.. NEVER in my life would I begin to imagine I'd be a widow at 45! we are just getting started!!!!! the kids are old enough now & he even has grandkids back in Ireland.. I feel so lost and angry at the same time.. I cant be with him at this time as he asked I come back to America & take care of our business, but he's pretty much shut everyone out of his life.. :(

      Cowgirl I'm really sorry to hear you and your family are having to go through this. Fighting to get diagnosed is stressful and just makes it frustrating when it seems the doctors just want to put a band-aid on it and send you home. You, your husband and hour family have to stay strong through this. Fight this cancer with all you have. I can only imagine how hard it must be to be away from your husband during this time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Know we are rooting for you and your family to get through this. Hugs.
