So sorry to hear your news. As the spouse of someone diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma 5 years ago, with a less than 20% chance of survival who is now in full remission, all I can say is be supportive. It sounds to me like he'll not put himself first, which obviously he must. I had no idea what to do. I laid awake night after night worrying about the future, how to bring up three teenage girls on my own etc. Luckily my dear wife is a lot stronger than I thought, and probably stronger than she thought. Make sure the family are there to support you, as well as hubby. Don't be afraid to ask for help. We got offers of help from neighbours we hardly knew. Simple things like collecting kids from school on chemo days etc. I know it sounds a bit hippy, but I believe positive energy helps, and certainly cant do any harm.
You are in my thoughts.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband at this tough time. Hopefully he manages to cope with the treatment.

You know that all of us dibbers are thinking of you both.

Melvin and Lesley
