A long road .

Hello dear friend,s its been a while again since l posted but as you know DH was waiting for some results well we got those last Monday and it was not good news he has throat cancer, he starts his chemo next Friday he has to have three sessions but if it has not shrunk any by the second treatment then he will have to have his voice box removed so if you pray say a little one for us.DH will be in hospital for five days at a time in Sheffield so my sister will be staying with me and driving me around as l do not drive, treatment will last about six months because either way at the end he will be having radiation treatment to zap any thing left behind and then six months convalecence so twelve months in all so it is a mighty long road we have to travel and knowing l have friends like you along the way will make it a little easier so please pop by every now and again l might not blog much but l will keep up to date with your blogs and thank you Diane for your kind message to see how l am.Well l can not think of any thing else to say at the moment this has been a hard post to write so enjoy the rest of your week l hope the sun shines again soon god bless Pat.

I want to send you & your husband lots of love.

I'm so sorry to hear this & know some of what you must be going through as at the end of April my mum was diagnosed with lung cancer(she has never smoked though). Since then she has been having 12 weeks of chemo therapy & she only has 2 weeks to go & then the radio therapy starts.
I just wanted to let you know that it hasn't been as scary as I thought it was going to be, she has lost a lot of hair but now has a wig, the chemo has knocked her with tireness & feeling unwell but she also has a lot of good days ( alot more than I thought she would) & since starting she has improved so much in her self, she couldn't eat before but can now. The scan she had mid way through also showed that the tumour has shrank, which of course if fantastic!
It is a scary time, but I just wanted to try & ease your mind a bit, even though I probably haven't as I know how scary this time is.
You will both get through this, it is funny how easily we adapt to situations, you will both be strong even in the hard times but I am really hoping for the best for your husband & that the treatment works.
Sending you both lots of love at this most horrid of times, but you will get through it I'm sure.
Love
Alison

I'm so sorry to read your blog post. I wish you all the luck in the world and hope and pray that your husband makes a complete recovery. Somehow, we do find an inner strength to cope with situations that we thought might be impossible. Keep strong and keep blogging....
Love Ali x

Hi Pat,
So sorry to read of your news, however positivity is the best weapon. Treatments have improved so much. I was diagnosed with skin cancer 30 years ago and am still around to tell the tale. My sister had cancer of the throat and treatment around 20 years ago. And she can still nag her hubby along with the best of them!!

Oh dear, I am so sorry to read this sad news. I hope that it is a postive outcome that will not result in him having to have his voice box removed. Stay strong. Sue x

Well, that just sucks. My thoughts and my prayers are with you, your family, your doctors and all those other folks tha will be helping you. When my dad was ill (a brain tumor), my mom found a ton of support online through groups dedicated to the same disease. It's scary, because you hear the good with the bad, but you can also get a ton of advice and understanding from folks that are in your shoes.

Awful news. I hope the treatment works and he doesn't have to have his voice box removed. Thinking of you. xx

Hi Pat
I will say a parayer every day for you and Dave. Keep strong. My mum had cancer in 2003. The same type of cancer had seen off almost all of her family on her mums side and several cousins too. When she was diagnosed, never for a moment did I think that she wouldnt survive. She's still with us and with Gods Grace will be around a lot longer to "mither" us! What I'm saying really is that these days - there is hope.

I came across your blog randomly by clicking on the top bar "next blog". Reading your post about your husband having throat cancer broke my heart. Please know God can do impossible things and I pray that he brings healing to your husband. Keep and always lean on the Lord
