      My spouse went to a grief counselor about 4 times and he was able to tell her what he was not comfortable saying to me. It seems to help.

      I'm the patient (castrate resistant...) and from my perspective there are a few things I've found that my wife has done that really helped. #1 being there and listening. Sometimes at the appointments so I don't miss what is being said but more often just listening to me (I know it's hard cause it can be horribly repetitive). #2 answering the repetitive questions so I don't have to. #3 being honest about how she feels and correcting me when I get off track. After nearly 44 years of marriage we have learned a whole new level of communication.

      Kep it positive and smile :)

      Wish there were easy answers. I too am a caretaker for my husband who had prostrate surgery Nov 2011. He gets his PSA every three months and it is like XXX waiting for the answer. His cancer escaped the prostrate and got into 2 of 14 lympnodes. Anyway, for what it is worth, just be there for him, and Give it to God
