Been crying all day. Lung tumor found on husband

He has a 4.9cm tumor in his left middle lung. We go for a PET Scan in the next day or two, then a bronchoscopy next week, then a thoracic surgeon.

He took the news far better than I did. I wept uncontroablly in the office. We have a disabled 6-year-old. He is the head of our household. I am not well either, though I do not know why.

I do not know how to find the strength for this.

Best case is that the tumor has not invaded the chest wall. If so, we remove as much as we can and do chemo. Best case is that it has not spread anywhere else.

I can not imagine raising my child alone.

Thank you Malboro for your good work. Rat company.
