I hope I have the right forum to ask this question. 1 year ago my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer, after many various scans they also found an 8cm aorta aneurysm, since the diagnose I have not left him on his own mainly in case the aneurysm bursts. my question is can anyone offer advice on how to keep caring for him patiently because he is becoming very difficult mainly because he was born with dyspraxia , Thanks in advance for any advice offered
Thanks for replying, last December and January he had every test possible to be told nothing can be done, because it is all to close together and he would not survive the operation, he is now starting to fall over and going vacant , not being fully aware of where he is. he has now got an alarm on his wrist, the trouble is he is still trying to prove he can do things, if I get a shower for example, yesterday he stood on a chair to change a light bulb, I had tl sort of grab him before he fell
