    Hi everyone
    I havenโ€™t been posting much lately… I hope all of you are doing well.

    My wife has been diagnosed with a inoperable brain tumor, most likely a glioblastoma, and will be undergoing a biopsy brain surgery today to confirm diagnosis and determine treatment.

    Positive thoughts welcome ๐Ÿ™

    We were indeed given a 3 months prognosis…. we passed it and made it to our 34th anniversary from our first date… we were two babies…

    We have been in hospice care. She has been in the end of life phase for a while now, but she was perfectly healthy and strong so I guess that played a part in her living a bit longer

    It has been cruel and gut wrenching. She went from perfectly healthy with some memory lapses to a wheelchair and with most memory erased in a little more than a month… the blessing is that she has very little pain, she just sleeps a lot… 18-20 hours a day.

    Maybe the best way to explain it is that she aged 40 years in 3+months.

    As weird as it may sound, being on this community and play has helped me maintain some sort of sanity… so many regrets, so many weekends doing extra work, so many vacations postponed… our kids finished their graduate school a couple of years ago, we were finally saving more and thinking about where to retire in 10 years… we live and work always looking forward and than one day you wake up and the future has been taken from you.

    Carpe diem my friends. Carpe diem…

    Thank you for checking in. And thanks to everyone for the kind words and thoughts.

    Very sorry, Unico. Wish you and yours the best through it all. Thank you for sharing your/her story and injecting some humanity and perspective for us all.

    @Unico10 This is the most gut-wrenching post I have ever read on this forum. Thank you for the update. I can’t begin to understand what you must be going through, but as someone battling cancer at a relatively young age I can relate on some level. I wish you the strength and peace of mind to get through this ordeal. ๐Ÿ‘Š

    I’m sad for you but the love and support you’ll give your kids, and the way that you and they will touch others throughout your lives will undoubtedly (or most hopefully) be one of the best and most beautiful parts of sharing her legacy you can provide your wife in her passing. I hope that the time to say goodbye, in spite of the hurt, was a true opportunity for closure, whereas some people don’t get that.

    You sound like an incredible person, well spoken, and emotionally thoughtful. I imagine you’ll touch others’ lives even without knowing it, but you’ll find a way to spread that love to others beyond just your own family. There are assuredly many here who have had losses and pain. And to whatever degree, I know that others here observe sports and DFS as not only a fun hobby but a wonderful outlet and support. I hope this has been true for you. All my best and I hope we continue to see you sometime(s) in the future as you regain your daily strength.

    Hey Unico10 and TheDataDetective 3, I just found this thread. I am sorry to hear what is happening to both of you but I can also say that I am also in the glioblastoma battle.

    I had my first brain surgery in February 2019 and a second surgery in June 2020…they could not remove the whole tumor the second time so now I am doing infusions with Keytruda and avastin every 3 weeks hoping I can extend life as long as possible. MRIs every two months.

    I am not trying to get any attention but I want to let you know that I know what you are going through and that I will think of you and think of you in my prayers.

    I am a believer and have faith so I am ready to face whatever happens.

    Best of luck to everyone that has to deal with such challenges.

    I feel your pain Sir.I lost my mom and sister to the disgusting C.
    At least she is not in pain and though she sleeps 18 hours,maybe in her dream state she has full memory of her life and is at peace,which will carry over when that day comes and she gets her angel wings.
    Be well…Be strong..
