Husband of 40 + years died October 2, 2009 from bacterial infection contracted in hospital. He had just started treatment for lung cancer. We were so hopeful as it was still contained to lung area. He got pneumonia soon after 1st chemo treatment and it all went downhill from there. Walking all over Baltic Sea nations while on a cruise in May, diagnosed in July, and gone in October. I'm still reeling from the shock and devastated by the loss.
