Jeane, hello new friend. And, yes just like Maggie said, "they tell us GBM is rare", but we who have lost our loves to "the Beast" as some of us refer to it know better. Come here often you will find comfort, love and some peace. Oh, and Maggie is a treasure, we don't care if she is 3 yrs beyond born in the 50's. Hugs.
Glad I found this site. I lost my husband of 38 years, together 44 years July 16th. We were newly retired, his second retirement from police work and we were starting to travel in our fifth wheel. Thought he was having a stroke but found out he had a brain tumor. Left our home to go to Dallas, Texas for surgery and treatments and was told he had Glioblastoma. He said he would beat this for at least 5 years but with only seven more treatments he got pcp from the chemo and dexamethosone and died 11 days later. He had been misdiagnosed in ER but that is the way it goes. Lost my best friend and still have some bad days. I have been going to a grief share group and some of the people say it will get better but I tell them it is different losing a spouse. Just lost my mom 3.5 years before who lived with us and Erv helped care for her. She was my best friend but it is different when you are with someone 24-7 and you know what each other is thinking just by looking at them. Thanks for listening.
