Last week was tough for my wife. With visits to our primary care physician, urologist and oncologist it almost seems like she is a soccer mom once again. "Here's your noon medicine and your 3:00 pm organic snack". "Let's not forget your blood draw and PSA test tomorrow." "Come inside, it's 4:00 pm; you don't want to "overdue it" for the day."
Last month was tough for my wife; for that matter, the last 2 years have been tough. It's been 2 years today that I was terminally diagnosed. I have watched my wife tirelessly take care of the needs of the day and plan for the ones ahead. I often wonder why the spouse of a cancer patient doesn't receive more attention...like the nice encouraging cards, some flowers or better yet-a gift certificate for a massage! I would have never known this to be a need until I saw the need for myself.
Sherry loves me. I had a great day today.
