Thank you.  That response is very much appreciated.

Lost Cause

by PFFlyer - June 21 at 5:24 PM

We have just been told that my husband has two months to live.  He and I, have battled primary liver cancer since February of 2017.  I won't go into everything that has gone on/and or happened but it looks like he is losing this battle.  I just have to share what happened recently at one of his oncology appointments.  In discussing, the prognosis, I expressed that we will continue to fight.  The doctor looked at me and said Mrs.-----, you need to just give up and consider your husband's comfort.  My husband who is an extremely positive person and has managed this disease with much courage and hope, was deflated.  He did not want to know that he only has two months to live, he prefers to live each day with a positive approach.  He's not stupid, he just doesn't want those words to be in his mind every day for the rest of his life.  His affairs are in order so there is nothing left to prepare. I am so angry with these doctors that they believe every patient needs to be told to their face that they are dying. This is not my husband's personality!  I've been married to him for 51 years.  I asked the doctor to share with me what to expect and though all the paperwork gives me the authority to discuss all aspects of my husband's medical, the doctor refused.  He would only talk to the both of us.  Angry, Angry, Angry!
