Need to reach out for someone to talk too. Because of doctor appointments, treatments, church youth group, raising our granddaughter, home life looking for online support group. Husband has stage 3 small cell lung cancer. Diagnoses Sept 19, 2012. Fourth round of chemo. Trying really hard to stay strong for him and family. Have melt downs sometimes. Most of the time can keep my emotions in check. But, the last couple of days seem to be hard. He is back in hospital. Was able to get him to fill out 5 Wishes form. Guess another slap of reality.
Was told yesterday maybe 3 months left. They just put a chest drain in his chest 2 days ago. He has been in hospital since last Thursday. Was told he will probably be there a couple more days..Just don't know what to expect as he goes downhill. I am a very need to know person. I would love to know what to expect.
