Grieving over a terminal cancer diagnosis
On our Wedding Day, 9/4/70
Maybe I've started grieving too soon. My husband of 42 years was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer that has already spread to his bones. We may has as long as ten years, maybe longer, left, but it might be much shorter than that. He is only 60, I am 62. I am completely devastated at the thought of life without him and have not been able to quit crying. I need to get past this, so that we can at least enjoy some quality time while we can. As Valerie Harper has said recently, don't hold the Wake while you're still living! It's not time to plan a funeral yet, and yet I can't stop grieving over the loss of a stable, healthy future with the love of my life.
