Husband Is Dying From Lung CancerMy God. I never in a million years thought I would grieve for my dying husband. It's been 20 years of such cruelty to me and I always thought I would be glad when he died. I know that sounds horrible and one day I'll post my story about that.
But now he is only a shell of the man he used to be and I am realising that there are many things I have loved about Gary. It's HORRIBLE to see someone going through such misery. And even worse is the mental agony he's going through. He cried and says he doesn't want this to go on. My heart melts and I wish I could do something to help him. I cuddle with him and he likes to hear my say that I'm not going to let anything bad happen to him.
He's already been through his chemo and radiation. He's stage3a. He was dx'd laast August. And the survival rate for one year is 50%.
Have you even seen anyone dying from lung cancer? If so, what can I expect next? Right now he coughs alot and says it feels like his chest is closing up. He gets breathless very easy. Just carrying a bag of groceries make him feel so lightheaded.
I would appreciate any comments. Thanks. Donna
