Found your comment on PW
I had to come over and give my "thoughts" on your husband. I am sorry to hear of your situation! I too have a wonderful husband(the second time around) I can't imagine how you must feel with his diagnosis. I hope he is with you forever and always, and beats the battle you did not choose to fight! Thought and prayers for you and your beautiful family.
