Hello and welcome Kirby! What a wonderful and inspiring story about
you and your husband. Despite his stats and treatments, he's living, and it sounds like he is living the way he wants, and doing what he wants. It's good to hear things like this for the rest of us. Congrats on your 25th, important milestone for sure.
I appreciate that you are a RN and serve double duty as wife and nurse to your husband. I am in that situation with my wife as a nurse also. She has been there all the way for me, good days and bad, and she does a wonderful job balancing the two worlds with me in the middle. I will always be grateful.
I hope your husband continues to do this well, and can still enjoy life at the same time. If you all need anything, just keep coming here, we are full of opinions, that's for sure, but we don't bite.
