Since returning to Canada my husband of 30 years (50 years old), was diagnosed with secondary bone cancer to the arm (September 5). On November 1 they finally found the primary in his esophagus the result of too much acid in his body for too many years (basically Barretts which he was never previously diagnosed with even though he lived on Tums).
His cancer is stage 4B and they have only given him 8 - 10 months with treatment (3 - 5 without). We are going to do everything in our power to beat that average. Yesterday was the 35 anniversary of our meeting he was 15 and I was 17. Today we are in our beautiful home that we built in the Rocky Mountains to retire to in 5 years and enjoying it with our 4 beautiful children and their families including 4 grandchildren, plus my husband's parents and his siblings and their families (22 for supper every night !!). We are going to treasure this time before we embark on the chemotherapy (January 8) after another set of CT's; PET's; heart and bloodwork.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. While not PC its the next
closest thing there is and this time last year I would never have imagined in
a thousand years what was about to befall my family first with my Mom and now
my beautiful husband.
