    It sounds positive that it should be treatable without chemo or radiation therapy though?

    We should have the results today or tomorrow hopefully. The process of telling people has begun- obviously mum knows. She is telling my grandad today. He is going out of his mind with worry- he knows something is going on and we aren't telling him. Mum said this bit will be the hardest- telling the people we love most whats going on. And it is. How do we start the conversation. As mum said we are lucky in a way- we have been prepared for the worst and had time to digest it, then finding out its not ad bad as first thought and having time to come to terms with that.... but these people haven't had that. And quite frankly our family experience with cancer isnt exactly full of good outcomes- mum is the only person who has been through it and had a good outcome (so far). Obviously association plays a huge factor in responses. We will be stressing that its looking positive for him to make a full recovery, but it still doesn't take away the shock or seriousness of it.

    And dh and I deal with things very differently- I cope by talking about it where he internalises it. I need to respect his wishes of course but at the same time I need to cope as well you know?

    Its all a bit of a roller coaster. One minute im telling myself its all ok, its not serious and things will be ok, its no different to someone having a cold or minor illness. The next it hits me that my husband has cancer. Yes he has been very lucky in that its not as bad as they were expecting but at the end of the day its still cancer, its lung cancer.
