10.What would I do without these forums?

Thanks. I needed to get those off of my chest tonight. I KNOW many of you are feeling the same thing. We are not alone.

Deb - I think of most of those things daily. I could start a whole list myself but can I just add on to yours?

11. Why can't I just get the doctor/nurse/insurance to listen and/or understand?
12. Since he hates me to ask, do I ask him if he took his Zofran anyway or wait to find out?
13. Why can't his family understand his decisions and just accept them?

I confess. I actually keep a list of my lists. Years ago everyone thought it was odd but now it seems life-saving!
Keep on doing what you're doing but keep yourself healthy too. That's one thing I forget to pay attention to.

You are both fortunate to have each other and all together we just stay strong.
