My husband & I just found out that he has only weeks to live. He only took sick a little over three weeks ago. We found out just a week ago that he had colon, liver, lung & bone cancer. Then four days later (Monday that just past) we were told that he only had weeks to live. After the shock wore off, and the tears still flowed, I asked about months.They then took some more blood work, at which time they said the results would tell them for sure. a little over an hour later they confirmed it would be just a matter of weeks. He is in liver failure.
I have been trying my best to support him, however, I myself became disabled 8 years ago & he has been my only support all of these years! I have a chronic, incurable nerve condition that leaves me in severe and constant pain.
I can never seem to say the right thing. I hesitate to bring things up that need to be taken care of ASAP (i.e. a DNR) among other legal matters, despite us both being advised by both the Oncologist as well as the Palletive Care nurse. When I wait for him to mention something he discusses it but then actions nothing. I am afraid that he will end up getting too ill to address these things. How do I get him moving to ensure that we have all of our matters taken care of???
