Although I am a caregiver, and not the patient, I have often thought the same thing since Butch was diagnosed in March - "how are we going to get through this". After much praying about it , I undersand that the Lord is with us on this journey, and he will help us to bear the burden. Between God, the support of family and friends, and the people on this board, we are able to go on to the next day, and the next, etc. It has given me a new found respect for life - I look at things differently, and my perspective of what is important and what is not has very much changed. One of the biggest problems that we all face is that life is going on - situations are arising that have to be addressed, there are financial considerations that we fight, and there is a lot of sadness - everyday we are all battling life, but - for me at least - I draw upon that inner strength, and lean on God, and he always carrie us through.
God bless you,
