Just when I've come to terms with losing my son to cancer within the next few months I need to find even more strength to get thru the next few days. Hubby's lung cancer is back and he goes in the hospital Monday am to have the lower right lobe removed and maybe all of whats left, depending on what surgeon finds. He had the upper lobe removed almost 3 years ago. He is very positive about it and we have wonderful friends and neighbors. I am staying positive too. There are sooo many cuties right now that are going thru such tragedies, put the power of prayers does amazing things. Each one of you have been in my thoughts and prayers even tho I may not have left you a personal comment. Love and hugs...Carol

Carol, my heart goes out to you, and my prayers for you! Cancer has stricken my family members so frequently throughout the past fifty years, it is mind boggling, but we must stay strong, as life goes on, and it is ALL in the Lord's plan.
If it is any consolation to your worries, my next door neigbor has lung cancer; just had large amounts of the upper lobes removed two months ago, and appears to be doing better than he has in years. Praying for your son and hubby each day!

I just want to let you know that my husband had the whole right lung removed (all 3 lobes). This was 18 yrs ago now! He gets short of breath but can still do most things (shovelling snow, fishing,...just no climbing mountains!).When his cancer was discovered the surgeon thought it best to remove the whole lung and thus got it all. It has changed some things,and we go a little slower at times, but hey,he is still here and we are very happy! So do not despair! I do know what you are going through,and I know it is not easy,but it does get better!! You will be in my prayers.
Love & Hugs, Nadyne

Thank you Nadyne. He has slowed down alot with just the upper lobe removed but has never given up. He is very active and when he gets out of breath he just stops and rests a few mins. He knows when he wakes up after surgery he may just be left with the one lung and it doesn't seem to bother him. But then he says why worry about what you cannot control. Thank you for your prayers. Hugs..Carol

caroldann by caroldann 04 Nov 2011

dang, I was cut off. He always says why worry about what you can not change. We will get thru it. thanks you for your prayers. Hugs..Carol

chenille by chenille 04 Nov 2011

That is what my husband does also, and he has the same attitude towards things.
Hang in there!
