Hey All, like that title.........caught your eye did it?

My hubby had his yearly physicial and the physician called him yesterday to tell him one of his labs is pointing toward a prostate problem so off he goes to the Urologist on the 13th.  He is most likely facing surgery and cancer is a strong possibility.
He has Crohn's Disease already and this has really hit him hard. My anxiety is running high but I rally when the hard times roll and I have to be what I am, a wife who loves her husband, and a caregiver at heart.

The toughest thing for me is the waiting and how to offer him support.  He shuts down when he is in trouble with his health.  I am sure he is depressed but he just won't talk.  So I need your prayers and your support to be strong enough and wise enough to get him through this.
 
Thank you all for caring.
Love
Kitt

Thanks Baby T.
He is not good about talking about his fears and he does not want anyone to know.  The nurse in me is of course searching the internet but the info is never conclusive and so we wait until the 13th. 
I wish I could go to sleep and wake up on the 13th just to make time go by faster.............

Thank you  for being here.  I do so appreciate it.  My anxiety is up, down and all over the scale.

The anticipatory anxiety is back as it is so hard to not think of the what ifs?

With your support I will be OK
Hugs to you
Kitt

Kitt I am so sorry about your hubby.My hubby has prostate problems too his is enlarged.So he has to keep watch out because an enlarged prostate can sometimes lead to cancer i hear.I will be praying for you hon.I guess now its time for us to give you the warm and gentle advice you give us.You seem like such a WARM PERSON I wish you and your husband the best.I know everything will be just fine you just wait and see! What you were saying about your husband not being good at opening up about issues like that,I think all men are like that. I think they just dont like to show fear or get emotional,alot of men think thats being soft,but like i tell my husband we are all human and being fearful is a part of life,it does not make you soft when you are fearful.It makes you human.Remind him of that!

Getting there

Good Morning my friends,

Well only 10 more days to wait.  You are right, I think it will turn out to be something simple but the waiting is hard.  I want to leave and come back in ten days but I would not leave him alone....... eyes

He does not want to talk about it and has taken the let's see what it is first approach yet I know inside he is worried.   I am a " lets have a fall back plan"  but seeing as this is his body, I respect his wishes. 

Men do not like sickness and weakness in themselves, I so understand that.  He already has the Crohn's so adding anything will be nasty for him. 

I am trying to stay busy and also quit eating..........I eat when I am nervous, happy sad.....oops, I guess I use food for comfort.  Been fighting that old battle all my life.  So off to the store to buy some fruit.

You guys are simply quite wonderful and coming here and seeing the posts warms my heart.  I feel like I can post my feelings and yet know it is ok.
Hugs
Kitt

Lordy, I am a jelly fish on the inside and yet I must continue to pretend that all is fine and we are not waiting to hear news that can change our lives.

I need to go back and read all my own advice.  I thank you all for your support, it means the world to me.

Lyn, I know you shut down...........I can always tell when something is happening and I am giving him the respect he deserves to do this his way.  I am leaning on you for sure.  You have been down this road often and you have dealt with it better then I am right now.  It is the not knowing that is so hard. 

Hey all jokes welcome, you know I have a sense of humor so I will never take a joke or teasing the wrong way.

Hugs to all
Kitt

Hey baby T, that was a hoot..........it did make me laugh.  You guys are so nice.  Hugs.
I have read up on the internet and I am beginning to think I am just plain nutso as he probably has a simple infection and I am in a high state of anxiety.  How I wish I had friends close to me.  I don't know how to focus my attention on anything productive so I sit here and answer posts.

I am  my own worse enemy and my problems seem so small compared to what others are writing.  My hubbies Crohn's disease is so well controlled I hate to even mention it on the Crohn's forum but he had such bad times through his 3 surgeries that I feel he paid a lot of dues then.  I am glad he is under control.

Lyn, I know you are going through so much with your Dad and family and yet you are so strong and you don't complain, so I will take a page from your book and just quit with the worrying.  It serves no purpose.

I will look for the sunshine and get my butt off the puter and start being useful.

Love each of you,  your just the best and I am so glad you are here.
Kitt

Good Morning Baby T, Panike, Lyn, Meg, Dor  and All..............

8 Days to go and we will find out that all is well.  I am convinced now that it will be ok and have stopped spending hours rereading the subject on the internet.

I am practicing my own staying in the moment philosophy to avoid the anticipatory anxiety and worrying about how I will cope.  I am strong but I can cry so I feel like I will make it through.

Everyday I come here and I feel the support of each of you and that boosts my spirits as you are each so encouraging. 

BabyT, we had a joke forum but due to the 13 years olds in the site and the jokes becoming a bit racey we had to suspend the joke thread.

You are certainly welcome to post a joke here.  I love a good laugh.

Do you think that woman needs our help...........lol
Hugs to you
Kitt

Kitt,
 
 
You and your Hubby are in my thoughts and prayers.
It''s so easy to think the worse, but please hang in there til you know for sure what is going on.
There are times when I'm not feeling good and I get quiet but I know my Husband is there for me.
Believe me, your Hubby knows how much you love him and knows in his heart that you are there for him!
 
 
Sending Big Hugs to You,
 
Mary
