    Sorry sbout your diagnosis and the pain. You seem to have a good attitude about it all and really like how you said, "playing the hand that was dealt to me". I can relate to that. We try to make the best of what we're give, it doesn't mean we don't put up a great fight on our cancer journey but we also try to find some peace and acceptance.
    Hope whether it is chemo or immunology it will help. Also, have your wife take all the help she can regarding household chores, errands, etc. Even though there is a "bigger" picture, in a small way having someone else take care of housework, cooking, whatever can ease her mind a little.
    My best wishes to you and your wife.

    Great to hear you have such good support at home.
    All we can do is the best we have been given. Cancer or no cancer each day is a good one because we had that day. Use it wisely right?
