My husband and I are both 53, two weeks before Christmas he was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Our world has been turned upside down by the diagnosis. We were looking forward to enjoying ourselves more in 2016 as 2015 was a difficult year. I can not even begin to contemplate not having by husband around as we have been together since we were 16, we have been so lucky to have such a wonderful long relationship.
I am struggling with the emotional side of it all. My husband seems very accepting and just wants to organise everything to make it easier for me when he is not longer here. He stuggles with the not knowing how long he has? He has started palative chemotherapy and the side affects do not seem to bad at the moment. Though he is very tired. We have three children and 2 grandchildren who have all taken the news very differently.
