Hello again

Its been a long time since I posted or visited here. Early in my wife’s treatment I came to the point where I realized she needed to talk to someone who has been through this, so I got a hold of someone on this sight and had her contact my wife to talk to her. It was a great help to her and started her going to some local support groups. Also I found a great caregivers support group at Kaiser in riverside anyone Kaiser member or not are welcome to come, next meeting is on August the 8th 10am to 11:30am
Unfortunately for me, my wife did not and still does not understand forums, computers or the internet and thought I was corresponding personally with other women. So for that reason I have been absent from here.
I thought I could now share a couple of things first the caregivers support group and some good reading it’s a blog from someone we’ve met @ the oncology dept. Its http://patandfloyd.wordpress.com go to the start he was an caring and loving care giver to his wife quite a story.
