Nadja, I'm so sorry for the giving-up diagnosis from the doctors.

It is a grave and horrifying diagnosis, so I want to offer you support above all.

I also want to say, though, that I don't believe that regular doctors are the best doctors for healing the root of an illness, and that there are other healing methods out there, which I believe are more powerful. Perhaps he would like to seek alternative treatment? If it feels right, there is a book that might interest him, called "You can Heal Your Life," by Louise Hay. This woman was teaching this healing technique for years (which focuses on healing inner pain to eliminate the root of illness), for all sorts of ailments...And then she was diagnosed with cancer. She realized that she herself had inner pain to process (resentment of past traumas) and she used the same method she teaches, to work through it. She cured herself completely in three months, with no trace of cancer remaining. She recommends the same treatment for people who have had cancer, to prevent recurrence. Another book which validates alternative treatments (but doesn't necessarily teach them directly) is called "Spontaneous Healing" by Andrew Weil, MD.

Also, your husband might consider seeing an energy-work specialist, like someone who does Reiki, Cranial Osteopothy, or intuitive energy work. I consider these excellent for at the very least prolonging health and boosting the immune system, and I personally know of one person who was healed of cancer through this alone.

I hope my advice isn't too belated, or too much. If so, please just accept my hugs and love. My prayers are with you!

It's never too late and thank you. We have not really looked into alternative meds but anything is worth a try. We do have a friend who does energy work and other therapies. We hadn't really thought about it, I guess the shock of the news makes it hard to think. Thank you for the nudge. We haven't seen our friend in a long time but maybe she can help.

To me, when a western doctor says "in-curable", what they simply mean is "we don't know what else to do." Instead of admitting their impotence in the matter, they use scary words which make one want to give up hope. But there are other healing options. I hope your husband hasn't given up hope.

Follow your gut instinct above all. That's where the guidance is.

I am so sorry for you, nadja. I don't know what to say. It's terrible to lose someone close to you, but he will never really leave you. I know it sounds cheesy, but it's the truth. I hope all the time you two have left together will be happy, despite this terrible occurrence :hear t: My prayers are with you!

Nadja, I don`t know what to say that hasn`t already been said. I wish you both the best and hope that there can be some sort of help and relief to the horrible time you are both going through right now. Your blog idea and coming here to "talk" to all your KH friends might be just what you need to keep your sanity - remember to take care of yourself as well as your husband!

I am so sorry to hear your bad news. If you want to "talk", vent, curse, here we are.
