Thank you, CK

From the moment we knew I had to have a partial hysterectomy, to the diagnosis of uterine cancer and a second operation and a hernia operation AND lymph node removal, to my newest battle with lymphodema, you are always there. Over these past months, I often wonder if I would be so selfless with you...I honestly HOPE I would, but I watched you clean up after me in the hospital, helped me manuever in the bathroom, change sheets, do housework, make me breakfasts, lunches and dinners, make a Christmas dinner for nine of us, do all the Christmas shopping alone, and yet, you only broke down once...when the diagnosis of the cancer came...and, even then, you rushed home and held me all the afternoon and night...I want to think I would be as selfless, but you are a special man, and I KNOW it. You were there for me, and loved me, pampered me, and let me be crabby...I don't know how you did it...I do know that I love you more intensely than before and I am grateful that we will have a longer life together...knowing that I am cancer free and you were there to hear that, too, was worth the struggle. I love you with even more passion than before and I hope you know that I am proud of you as both a husband and a friend. We will be together 40 years in June and I love you more each and every day. I credit you with a lot of my success...I wish everyone had a man/person in her life like you. Jane
