Richard is my husband of 43 years and he worked for American Electric Power for 41 years. After retiring...only a year later, we he got pneumonia, which would never clear up and we later found out he had lung cancer in his left lung. He had lung surgery where they did a lobectomy removing the upper lobe of his left lung and really had a tough time getting the lung to seal. They told us all 11 lymph nodes removed were benign so we thought we were home free. Now it has come back in the right lung..why we don't know ..and he's having to do chemo, which really makes him weak and sick but he won't give in and not rest. He's so used to working hard...he thinks he still has to, because he's always been so strong. It breaks my heart to see him suffer but we did get good news that the chemo has started to shrink it some. We pray everyday that it will disappear but if not...it will be God's will. But for all this and the fact that he's always been a great husband, father and grandfather and friend to everyone. HE IS MY HERO!!!
