  •  I just read... (12+ / 0-)

    Teacher Ken I'm so sorry.  This is the first time I have read about you love and her condition, though I often read your posts.

    I lost the love of my life, my soul mate, and best friend last October, after a two year fight with that dreaded disease.  I'm glad to hear that for you there is a lot of research going on and treatment available.  I admire what you are doing, and probably know better than many what the journey you are on is like.

    All I can say is tell her you love her often.  Take and cherish every good moment that you have, and there will be many.  Take pictures.  (Yes, do that.  I documented many steps in our "journey").  If you haven't already, start a Caring Bridge site for her.  I used it as sort of a blog for my/our feelings, to share with family and friends, and posted many of those prescious pictures. (I plan to print it off some day ... and keep it.)  Try to have as many normal days and moments as you can.  We had a chemo break of about four months, and took several small trips, memories of which I treasure greatly.  

    My last comment, from other caregiver friends,...
    "You never know how strong you can be, until being strong is the only choice you have".  Hugs.
