Brain tumour

This my wonderful husband and best friend in the whole world.  He was a brilliant carpenter and all rounder, whatever he put his hand to he could fix so blessed and talanted. 15 years ago he hurt his back after building our dream home. It left him 2 years on his back in bed awaiting surgery and on morphine. Long story short there was a lot of struggling and 2 surgery's later he's was able to do bit and pieces at home but couldn't return to full time emploent because his back keep going.  I in the meantime found that I had an inherited heart disease that can cause sudden death and one of our sons has my grans too so he has to be kept an eye on. Pay husband had always tried to better himself and not let his disability take over him he trained himself everything about computers, guitar, building websites and his last learning was wood turning which he loved and struggled many a time to go out to the shed to turn pieces of wood into something fantastic. The last six or so months have been hard on him as he wasn't even able to do it because gradually other thing start to cause trouble, shoulder, knees, elbows and headaches. 8or 9 weeks ago he got stroke like symptoms, went to the doc, sent to a&e. It turned out in had inflamation of the brain. Loads of tests later and going into week 5. We are eagerly waiting on a bed in beaumont hospital. For surgery to remove or treat as we still don't know what their going to do. I feel if we had insurance or if he was a TD or in government he wouldn't be left waiting like this. The last MRI done 2 weeks ago showed the tumor had got bigger. I fear with my life the time being waisted and all the what ifs?? I have to do this at least to try do what I can for him.
Thank you for taking time to read. I wish you and yours health and happiness. 
Yours sincerely
