My husband took an unexpected turn for the worse the other day. He became very weak and now needs a walker to get around the house.
He is coughing a lot although cough medicine will help.
He has an appointment for a consultation on August 3rd, and I hope he will be alright until then.
We have lawyers working on a new will, personal directive and enduring power of attorney at the moment. I hope he will be alright until the papers are signed.
Don’t leave these things until the last minute as we have done!
No, I have no symptoms, and I am still due to have my now annual mammogram in August.
In June, I learned that my husband has lung cancer which has spread to his shoulder.
He is currently undergoing radiation treatments. The pain was bad, and the doctor thought it was a “bad shoulder” as he has previous injuries to it, a torn rotator cuff, etc.
But that was not the only thing. A CT Scan revealed a tumor.
Going forward, he will have a total of ten radiation treatments, and then he meets with an oncologist for consult on August 3.
I am devastated.
