Did your screen name use to be jeffs1fan4ever? If so , your the one who really touched my heart. I lost my mom Feb.18, 2006 to sclc.I buried her on the 28th. I use to read your postings when you were batteling this with your husband. I wondered what happen to you, and how you were, and how the boys were. Im so sorry your having such a rough time, I am too. Everyone keeps telling me to give it time, if one more person tells me that I think Im just gonna lose it. Ya know, until theyve traveled this road they just dont understand. Small cell is a beast, and I will never forget the way it took my mom. I like you, was there for everything. Every appt, all the chemo , radiation, brain surgery. I took care of her and I wish I still could. ( I know thats selfish). My mom would look to me for the answers and what should be done. She would tell the doctors "ask punkin", she knows whats best. And now, I wonder if I did. I wonder if I did everything possible that I could have done for her. I understand your pain.
My husband who is 34, is going for a ct scan. Im so worried. The doctor seems to think its emphysema, but in the back of my mind I wonder if it could be some type of lung cancer. He has all the symptoms my mom did except for low potassium. The cough, the back pain, and the horseness in his voice.I know your husband was young. Can I ask what his symptoms were?
Sending you (BIG HUGS) and please know you are not alone
