I honestly didn’t know what to give as a title. My husband Shane has been fighting Stage 4 metastasis prostate cancer for about three years. Unfortunately he has been in the hospital since the Sunday of the 6th. Shane has been through hell and back and still fights strong. Over a year ago he ended up in the hospital the day we was to get married. The marriage still happened. We ended up getting married in our local emergency room before they transported him to IU in Indy. Two days later he had two nephrostomy tubes put in. Shane has tried so many treatments it’s so hard to name them all. Toward the end of 2018 Shane started retaining fluid everywhere. We ended up having tubes put in the space around the lungs so we can drain all the fluid as needed. My poor husband had four tubes coming out is body and yet he still tried to be positive. Just yesterday we got the worst news imaginable. We got his CT scan back and it showed that the cancer has progressed. It has now moved into his liver and has taken over more of his lymph nodes. They tell us there really isn’t much more they can do. Now is the time for quality of life. My heart is breaking they give my husband Shane two weeks to maybe a month. I honestly do not know how to prepare myself. How do I help my husband with this? He is my heart and soul. We have only been together for about four years but seems like a lifetime. The day I found him was the day I found myself.
Thank you for letting me share my story.
