I'm asking for support in prayers & positivity. Most who know me know the history of my parents and all I've been through with them over the past 2 years+, including the loss of my Dad last May, & my stepmom deteriorating after a hip fracture to be placed in a nursing home in a 4 week period. And then all my own issues, including the 2 pseudoarthrosis cervical surgeries (didn't heal/fuse).
The week before Christmas my hubby needed an ultrasound and then a prostate biopsy; due to a need to urinate more frequently and sudden loss of bladder if he bent over. They ran labs and not only was his PSA (prostate specific antigen) increased, they told us he's a diabetic. So he's been on a strict diabetic diet since December 12th and I'm trying to eat the same way to make it easier (I can no longer cook so he prepares all our meals). It's very hard on me because I crave sweets, and stress worsens my cravings.
Dec 27th the doc called to say he has prostate cancer. Now I'm really stressed. He's being referred to an endocrinologist for his diabetes, which must be under control before they will even consider doing surgery to remove the prostate. Not removing it isn't an option for either of us. His dad suffered symptoms for 6+ months before he let on that he was even sick. By the time he was seen his cancer had spread all throughout his abdomen; prostate, bladder, intestines. They couldn't treat his at all and he died 5 weeks after being diagnosed. So I'm really trying not to spaz out. Losing my Dad & then mentally & physically losing my stepmom (progressive Alzheimers & hip fx)...I'm not ready to lose my hubby, my best friend, so I am stressed! Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers! As always I'm sending love hugs and prayers for all of you too. 🙂❤🙏🌼
