Christmas In the Hospital

My hubands was diagnosed with Stage 111a NSLC in November. They removed 2 different tumors in the same lung. One stage 111a and the other stage 1a. They could not removed all the cancer because it was near a large artrey and the cancer had spreaded to his lymph nodes. They removed several lymph nodes but two cancerous ones remain.

They have already told him he will need a feeding tube because he is so thin. I really don't know how to feel. I have yet to cry. We have two teenage daughters at home and I stay strong for them and my husband. He is in denial which makes it harder. I find myself researching more on how long he may have to suffer. Is this normal? I don't know what I feel.
