A Two Cancer Household

By now most of our friends know that my husband, Mark P. Line, has been diagnosed with lymphoma. He has a personal blog up at whatwasthemiddlepart.wordpress.com for anyone who wants to read his story, which is both fantastic and to the point.

No one ever sat us down and told us we’d be having cancer at the same time, and it presents its own form of challenges in taking care of each other and working toward anticipating problems before they start. Lucky for us we’re living at a time when chemo drugs are available that can at least, for Mark, wipe his lymphoma off the map quickly. And, in spite of my advanced cancer, the drip factory has succeeded in pushing back the tumors — and ultimately I’m hoping we’ll get it under control.  I’m feeling better than I did anyway, which is good.

In some 12 days Mark will lose his hair, which will be an experience. Actually I think he’ll look rather handsome. You’ll be able to read his reactions directly — I think it’s important for a man to post his reactions to cancer.. more and more of this is happening lately and guys need feedback too.
