           In December, my husband was really sick..I finally got him to the hospital for about 10 days with a dx of emphysema and bronchitis..I had known he had breathing issues for years but had been unable to get the VA to diagnose him.

            My 62 year old husband is currently undergoing tests to determine staging of pelvic/skeletal cancer. He is a disabled Vietnam Veteran who has suffered years of pain. After a recent hospital stay..the VA began ordering an endless amount of tests; each one more scary than the next. We have a 10 year old son still at home and 3 adult children with 11 grandchildren. I am completely lost and scared out of my mind. He is scared too, and very moody at this time.
