Some days are just not good. My husband goes through alot of different days. He has been diagnoised with lung fibrois a few years back. Recently things are getting worse for him. His oxygen level is bad. Been going for alot of tests lately. Has arthritis spreding threw his back, calling it rhuemtoid. Alot of pain, being checked for fibromyalgia, lymes, they have ruled out lupus. Thank goodness. Many days are hectic. He can't work like he would like to. It is a hit and miss situation. I hope you don't mind just needed to vent a bit. I feel your my friends, hope ya don't mind. He is a gooooooood guy, and tries so hard. On his good days, he wood works, carpenter work, welds. Does many things. Thanks for listening.

Good Morning Donna, I read your post and immediately asked God to hold the two of you extra close. I am not articulate and I am not filled with words of wisdom. I do try to be caring and when I read a post where good people are struggling it does sadden my heart. Dennis and I are fortunate in that we are both in fairly good health and I cannot imagine how it would be if one of us were otherwise. As someone already said your husband is fortunate to have you at his side and you are fortunate to have him since it sure sounds like he isn't quitting but keeps on doing what he can and that he is a good man. You will be on our prayer list and may the sun shine on the two of you!
Toni and Dennis

That is tough for you both Donna, on the good days I bet he really enjoys his work like he had never before. Here's wishing you both many many more good days and no more bad ones.
Later Bob

I wish there was something to say that would make you feel better Donna we all get down at times,and yes it helps to vent.It always helps me when I'm down to look at someone else that is worse off than I am and try to feel life from their side sometimes it's hard to think that somebody else is worse off.Try to look at the bright side.You were blessed with a good man he might not be perfect but he is good man to you thats a lot more than others can say. Chin up girl,keep smiling I hope and pray your husband will get better.

At first I was saddened by your post. Then I read it again. He is a blessed man to have someone like you. Could you imagine going through the discomfort he has all by your lonesome? On his good days I bet he overdoes it. Trying to make up time from being laid up? Sure don't know what the answer is for him, but I'm thankful that you got each other, and there will be one more prayer tonight on your behalf. God bless both of you.
