I hope no one minds my posts regarding my OH' brain cancer - although the long term prognosis isn't great today both the radiation oncologist and the home physical therapist expressed surprise and optimism regarding his physical strength on his left side (which was paralyzed due to  the location of the tumor) he has some movement and can now maintain his balance while sitting unassisted  for a 10 minute period and stand with minimal support  I know it sounds small but believe me it is HUGE on Friday we will work on getting in and out of the car at least then we can get out of the house for enjoyable trips rather than taking the chair car to radiation and doctor's appointments I've come to appreciate that is not the amount of time we have left but the quality of that time Thanks for listening

Jetdog, please don't think anybody would mind you posting.  I'm so sorry to hear of your OH's illness and wish you well in coping day to day with all that it will bring.  Come on here and say whatever you like to your "anonymous" friends, it's difficult to keep a brave front all the time for your OH, family and friends.

Its great to hear that it could get easier for both of you with your OH being able to sit without assistance for a little while - Im crossing fingers youll manage the get-in-and-out-of-car-action, it could indeed make things so much easier!
Please keep posting, positive thoughts, power and a good portion of luck and patience are sent round yours from here!!
