    Surgery was only 3 weeks ago. So, I'm still sore and learning to breathe with one lung. I'm walking as much as possible. That is helping me gain lung capacity and gives me a boost of energy. The anticipation of upcoming chemo makes me anxious though. Just as I'm gaining ground from surgery the chemo will set me back. Trying to keep my eye on the prize....cancer survivor. But, it's not easy.

      I have not had surgery yet........May 16 th....... Have great family and friends , have several including husband , where are already hovering . I have always been the care giver by nature hard for me to receive help. They feel like because they help me have to try and help . At this point. I can do for myself , made my husband go back to work , and made clear need no help now, still try but put my foot down , you are very blessed to have the love of your husband ! It is his way of coping with your cancer .

      Thank you all for your insights and great suggestions. There is a lot of good stuff here for me to use. I'm overwhelmed with the number of you "out there" going thru this with me. Thank you kindly.

      My husband was exactly the same way, he was wonderful and when I encouraged him to take a break, he said, "if you can't take a break, then I won't either" That is a wonderful thought, but I needed him healthy and fully charged. When the opportunity ame for him to go out of town for the day with family, I made sure 2 of my friends would be available. then I encouraged him to go. He was hesitant at first, but went and came back recharged.
