So sorry to hear about your hubby but he is in a far, far better place.  GBM is the most horrific cancer as a patient and as a caregiver.  We hope every day for a cure so that we don't have to "welcome" anymore people to this board.

Strength and prayers to you and yours.

I am so sorry for your loss.  Why does this monster seem to target the strong, healthy people, who have so much to offer?  It just doesn't make sense to me.  I know that all of the brave warriors are in a better place now.

I'm so very sorry for your loss.  I understand perfectly what you're going through as I lost my love 2 weeks ago to this monster GBM.  Your husband and you put up a great fight.  21 months out is very respectable.  Our warriors are now in a much better place.  

I hope you find comfort and strength with loving memories. 

Peace, hugs, and prayers to you.

Seriously?  100 push ups a day? Ok, that is pretty damn impressive! 

It is just so hard for me to comprehend why GBM seems to be the cancer of the fittest.   It is just breaking my heart to see my husband struggle with the simpliest things.....dates, numbers...He was so on top of everything and could remember every fact and date.  It used to irk the hell out of me sometimes...and now, well, it's just a different story. 

It sounds like you were blessed with a wonderful relationship for a lot of years.  I hope you hold that dear.

Best wishes to you going forward

I lost my darling 10-16-11 and each day it seems to be worse. He was diagnosed originally 9-08-10 and made it 13 months. He also walked 1-2 miles a day at the YMCA or he would walk around our neighborhood. He used our snow blower last winter and mowed our yard and planted flowers for me (Day Lillies). He had a second surgery 8-19-11 and the surgeon inserted 6 Gliadel Wafers and when the chemo started releasing from the wafers he got inflamation and yhen infections and ended with a tube inserted in his brain because hehad ventriculitous and cellulitis. If you know of anyone who is going to have a second surgery PLEASE let them know of the dangers the wafers can cause. His surgeon mentioned nothing about putting the wafers in and we knew nothinh about the possible deadly side effects. I think that is one reason I'm having such a bad time with my grieving. I had intestinal problems for 3 months. He was 63 and we were married for 31 years June 30, 2011.

After fighting a brave fight of 21 months (diagnosed May 13, 2010, he is now singing in God's heaven on February 17, 2012) - Glioblastoma multiforme IV, usual surgery & treatment - age at diagnosis was 75, he was paralyzed since November, 2010, bedridden the last several months.  I almost didn't post because of these dismal statistics -- a horrible disease, wonderful man.  I pray for a cure soon, and that I'm not upsetting anyone with this news!

I loved my lovable man -- if there had been anything, ANYTHING, I could have done -- on those long days of sitting by his bed -- but there was NOTHING --

Still lovin' my man in Texas,

Dear Tromda:  Yes, Seriously!  He was a stubborn - OK, let's call it determined!!! fella!  He did space it out and divide it up into 3 times a day!  And he could remember the smallest of details about movies, music, so many things -- that flew in one of my ears and out the other!

And I agree - it seems like the best and fittest.  I'm so very sorry your husband has had some of the same problems, and I thank you for your kind wishes.
