I know where she is coming from and I can feel her pain. This is why when Welsh Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones said she refuses to accompany husband, Michael Douglas to the hospital for chemotherapy and radiation treatments I was not at all surprised.
It is really hard seeing someone you love go through the pain of getting cancer treatments – actually any treatment for whatever illness entails pain. What more the man you are married to and is the father of your kids.
Zeta-Jones said, “I know maybe I should be stronger, but emotionally I just don’t want to see the man I love hooked to a chemo IV or lying motionless on a radiation table under a positioning mask.”
She added, she feared for her husband even before his condition was diagnosed because he was a heavy smoker. “It wasn’t a huge shock, I knew something was up, but the one thing that struck me first was: ‘This doesn’t happen to Michael Douglas.’ The hardest part is seeing his fatigue because Michael is never tired. I’m 25 years younger than him and he wears me out.”
Like Zeta-Jones, I’m hoping for the best for Michael Douglas. He is such a good actor.
