You are the hero!! You have accomplished so much, and been an inspiration to me, as well as many others I am sure. I just know that your spirit and soul are in good hands...God Bless You My Dear...My thoughts and Prayers are with you & your family, and I know with your strength and courage you will be at your sons wedding, If you can make it through the entire school year battling this disease, you can do this...Have Faith...that is something that Drs cannot give you...Many do not know the power of God...but we do...don't we...
Caregiver for my Wonderful Husband Angelo, who has Metastatic Bladder Cancer.
Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain.
Dear Karen -- Your heroic caregiving has been a major inspiration and impetus for me. It is so hard to know what to say on this anniversary. I recall folks had trouble with that when I reached mine a few months back. I was diagnosed, though, in Feb 2007 and didn't find the forum until Dec (!) 2007. I sense it was different for you. My best to you both -- Susan
Yes Karen it has been a long year for all of us. I must say Angelo and yourself have been a very strong couple with all you two have been through.. He is a very lucky man to have married such a supportive and loving lady. I pray for you guys everyday. Joe
Karen, since I joined this forum I have read all of your posts. You are an inspiration and a wonderful caregiver for your husband which has made you the expert that you are today.
You and Angelo have overcome and faced severe difficulties with this horrible bladder cancer. The fact that you have learned from, and shared your experiences on this forum is commendable to you under the difficult and emotional circumstances you have coped with during the past year.
You provide great support to other caregivers and bladder cancer people (like me)even when you are dealing with your own problems and Angelo's health problems.
Not to forget that you have a young family deal with too.
Your compassion and empathy towards others reflects your wonderful and caring personality.
Best wishes and prayers to both you and Angelo.
