Hi Sisters! That is a great idea for DH support. I know that for us we are support for one another as he is going through his health issue as well. We take turns caregiving. I often have thought that God has blessed me with handling the chemo well because I need to be string for him too. He needs me as much as I need him. We are blessed for certain.
Anita I know my DH (Steve) has friends he talks with and also our pastor stays in touch with him so it helps a lot. I make sure he goes out and has coffee or lunch with guys too. Does your DH take time for himself when he can? I know it's was hard Steve when I was early in my treatment but I would make him.
Tomorrow we are having our office Ladies Retreat and so we are all leaving the office at noon and heading to the ocean for the night. There are 7 of us and so we should have a good time. We started doing this a couple of years ago and last year we didn't go because of my dx so they all didn't want to do anything. So we will have a good time and celebrate and few things my healing and also a others back healing and also another who just found out today she is having twins. I will have fun but it will be odd leaving DH behind but it will be good for him too. I think my brother is coming to hang out with him and watch football.
Sue I have your surgery noted to be sure to be praying. I also have your time set on my phone so I can see the time difference. I know you're worried sis but just try and find comfort in our Lord and His promises. You will find such peace. Trust and Believe!
Thank you all for your prayers for my family as well. My son had his biopsy so hopefully should hear something Monday he was told. As for me I have my appt scheduled for the gyno at SCCA so we can have my annual and also discuss the options for hysterectomy or just ovaries or what. I am looking forward to get the ball rolling on this. She wants me to have an ultrasound first so I will be doing that. Guess it's normal to have a little nerves as it brings back memories of that horrible day of dx. Can't believe it's been a year as it seems like a few months ago. Lots has happened and I am so glad to be here chatting with all of you. Have a blessed night Lady Warriors and know you're in my thoughts and prayers throughout the day. Love ya Lucy.
