I have both sides in my life right now. My husband of 37 years is in it forever. I’m 9 months into my mbc diagnosis and we’re both still getting used to it. My son who was disabled in an accident 5 years ago (TBI) is having his wife leave him and he’ll be moving in with us. They have 2 girls that I take care of most every day. It’s amazing how much a lack of support from someone you trust can demoralize a person.
Only one answer, of course yes! It was cancer, it is metastatic, my body is a collection of scars, my secondary effects are always there, but so he is…. fighting with me….. so yes, the answer is yes….. not easy, not the love story you are used to see, but it is real!!!!!
Exactly the way it should be!
It may not be the “typical” love story but it’s yours and his and that’s all that matters. I’m so happy to see comments like these when I’m so used to reading about the devastation cancer causes.
Wishing you many more happy years!
I love Lori Ann just as much today as the day she agreed to be my wife,when she got her uterine cancer,when she slowly got sicker and sicker and when she passed away.
I’m willing to bet your wife absolutely knew how much she was loved and cared for. I’m so sorry. Cancer is such a MF’er
If he’s really in love, none of this would truly matter. 😊
Of course that’s what everyone hopes and some find out they have the best caregiver but unfortunately there are others that are on the opposite side of that coin and there’s no way to know until the situation happens.
PS. This in no way represents anyone or couple in particular. It’s just a scenario.
Yes. You said the truth.
