On May 11, 2000 my husband found out he has lung cancer. He is 54 and does not want to go through the Chemo, which the doctor said would not cure him anyway. It would only prolong his life a little more. I respect his decision however hard that will be for me. He began having a severe cough before the cancer diagnosis and had gotten worse. Right now he tires very easily and his appetite is not good. We have Hospice and the nurse comes ones a week checking pulse and blood pressure(no help). His doctors would give us only 2-6 months time limit without treatment. I like to be prepared for the worst. I was hoping some of you that have experienced this terrible loss could help me. What should I expect? Is there anything I should do? I guess I just needed someone else to hear theirs story. I know there is nothing left to do but pray and hope that he won't have to suffer too much or to long. If anyone has any experiences to share, I would appreciate it. Thanks
