Thanks for giving more detail...It sounds like you have everything in order...so I know it's hard...but again..worry is only going to cause more headaches (literally)...
That is why as I mentioned...it's about
setting everything up so that you feel comfortable about
your treatment...and a plan "if" the worst was to happen. And then let things go and live your life joyfully.
Stealing all that joy from each day worried about
what "could" be is no way to live.
So..making sure you exercise each day which helps stress levels....Like a nice walk in the evenings with your hubby.
Or doing yoga/meditation...this can help relax you as well.
Or simple things like watching favorite tv shows/movies....spending time with friends...laughing..talking.
Just throwing out some suggestions. I look at the boards as the perfect place to come and vent and speak our fears...but then when we leave the computer....we leave them behind for us to pray about
