Thanks for the nice words and positive sentiment. It must be tough to be the loved one, and I need to work harder to understand and apprecite where you are coming from. I try to reassure my wife, Jan, and I know she tries hard to keep up a positive facade to help me. I know that these last months have been very difficult for her, but she does not complain. She has been an incredible support, which helps me a lot. We have developed a newfound appreciation for everything we have in life, and try to live each day with gratitude (obviously that doen't happn every day though!). We have had our share of ups and downs over 17 years, but this situation has actually brought us closer together, I think. It has taken months for us to come around to a more positive place, and I hope that happens for you before very long. Feeling that you have a good treatment plan helps tremendously. I can tell that Bob is a very lucky guy to have you as his wife, and I want to wish both of you the strength and energy you will need. Please keep posting about how things are going for both of you.
