Just need to vent for a moment here.. My husband was diagnosed Aug 2013 with this Cancer. Our passion(and our volunteer life) in life has been flying and aviation and producing airshows. Well I am sure the executive board feels they are doing the right thing but to drop my husband after thirty years of growing the show, filing the paperwork, working with the FAA, media(both good media and bad), bringing in Ace pilots to our shows, Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, A-10 demo, F-16, F-18. Putting the show together, entertaining AirShow performers. Taking our vacation time and our money to go for yearly training/conference(which we just got back from). Been a pretty tough blow in the gut. I know my husband will pass someday- we all will but really? We have lived this industry till it pours out of our veins and I can not begin to know how much we have spent over the years to make this happen. I am just so totally blown away.. Yes some of it is my selfishness as well.. I am been the one in the background running the company putting my pilots license on hold even making changes and less then to boost him up and just like that a dam cancer takes it all away...
So I just need to vent for a minute. I so hate this cancer- I am in the mode of what it life going to be like after I lose my husband. He is my best friend, My sounding board, my coworker my younger children's father. He is my other half..
We leave Monday to Miami to hopefully have the Nano knife performed on my husband CC.
Congrats!! That is so good to hear!. Good luck with the next steps.
Thank you for "posting" the long walk. I do appropriate hearing the full walk on your road. It helps to give me hope with my husband and to know we are not alone. Happy Holidays
Congrats on School. I can relate as Thanksgiving has always been one of my favor tire days of the year and we were given the surgery option Wednesday and been praying about the risks.
Again congrats on the accomplishment of finishing college.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Over all I can not complain. God has given us when he feels we need.
August 23 2013 My husband went into the Doctors because he was yellow. Jaundice turned into Cholangiocarcinoma Cancer. We have been very lucky so far as it seems each day we have been able to go to the next doctor and next appointment. As it sits right now we find out Monday if my husband will be a candidate for surgery. To me the Doctor did not sound very optimistic but my husband feels he was. I am holding onto my husbands optimism. We know the mass is around 4cm by 5cm.
