    he made it through the surgery with flying colors but the tumor is a gbm... the most deadly type of tumor and he has 9 months to a year and a half to live.. i am still in shock, but we will deal with it.. he wants to take the kids to disney and on a cruise so we will do all of that he wants until he cannot anymore... he is going to die.. my soul mate is going to die...............

    jaystrupp, I am so very sorry to hear what you are going thru. Do you have family there for support? or a church or close friends. You will really need to lean on them. I wish I could say something to you to ease your pain but please just know that we all are thinking of you and sending you lots of prayers. Blessings,

    You and your family are in my prayers. May God give you His peace... and may your husband have strength to do all that he desires to do with you and the kids. Do ask for help when you need it... we can only offer good thoughts and prayers, but I am sure that there are those around you who can bear some of your burden. Reach out... you have a lot on you.

    Oh Man, how terrible for you and your family. I don't have a lot to say, but that I empathize with you. What a shock to be told something like this. Take care, be strong, and cherish every moment.
