Hi, Frank, Well, the sun IS shining here in Las Vegas. Glad the morning has brightened your spirits as well. I think I agree with the poster who said you seem to be the "worrier" in the family. Also the middle of the night is never the best time when there's an elephant sitting in the corner of your bedroom.
Re: chemo. I was never nauseous during the whole time of my tx, so I never threw up. I felt really well for 2 weeks and awful for one, just as Julie said. If I had something impt. going on like family events (because thankfully life does go on and the routine is reassuring) I discussed it with my onc. and we worked around the event. So don't expect the worst; everyone's body is different.
Your new job opportunity sounds exciting. Discuss it with Linda; see what her feelings are about the change. In the end the decision wll be yours but you'll make it with lots of imput from your partner. I promise she still loves you, she is not fragile and her mind still functions clearly. Don't think of her as someone who needs to be coddled and protected. She is still the person she was before the dx, she just has lots more on her mind.
Hope this helps you out. Luci
