I HAD the BEST CHRISTMAS,EVER!

My husband got through his operation.I think in my last post I mentioned that he had a surgery planned in January.Well,We went to his pre admission check up,and after examination,they arranged "IMMEDIATE" surgery.The operation was four hours.It is a week today that we were wondering what effects would happen and When?
The doctors advised us that he will be recovering for at least 3 months.
My Christmas Blessing is to have him back with me.We have been given a little longer.

My health is holding up.My lungs are painful at times lately though.I find it is starting to hurt when I breathe.I know though that I must kick in more now that my husband needs me,so I will be strong enough.
I see my cancer Doctor at the end of January.I am getting worried on that appointment.I feel like the cancer has spread into my other lung.If the cancer isn't spreading,then as we speak I must have pneumonia,again."The lesser of two evils".

I am strong and will be able to get through these tests.I will be looking forward to the New Year with hope.
I also know Now,that the FOCUS is not on "ME" .My husband has spent the last four years at my beck and call.He was in hospital after hospital wih me .
Sometimes I feel like I want the spotlight on "me",but this time I want the light to shine on him.
I know that he can maybe live a normal life to a ripe age,if this new aorta valve works alright.
I know that "cancer is what it is."I would much rather put effort into a living plant,than a dying one.
I do promise myself ,that I will take very good care of myself!
I am a very strong woman!
Thank You all again for your readings of my story.I appreciate that you take the time to comment,and most of all I appreciate YOU.

Wishing You All a Very Happy and Healthy New Year

I found your blog through mybloglog.

I hope that you stay strong. I took care of my father for 5 months with metatstatic lung cancer (stage IIIb-4) and all I can tell you is to live day by day. Don't think about next week or tomorrow. If today is good day, good and if not you have tomorrow. Day by day.

I wish you all the best.

Stop by if you would like to my blog to see that you aren't alone. My father was older, and had a more advanced stage of the disease. http://what-you-cant-see-is-me.blogspot.com/
