Topic: Sad to report
I sit hear with a heavy heart to report that my husband, age 51, has decided to begin hospice. He started his battle in October of '05 and has fought valiantly. His journey started with a liver resection. He has taken every chemo offered to him as well as two different sessions of radiation without ever missing a day due to complications or low blood counts. This cancer just won't quit. It has invaded several parts of his body (liver, lungs, pelvis, abdomen). If that isn't enough, he can not stop vomiting. He is getting no fluids or food down. The vomiting is so intense that he was admitted to the hospital tonight for symptom control. We can't seem to get him to a comfortable state enough to be with family and friends. Please pray that this latest stay in the hospital will give him this small break to enjoy some time with those he cares about. I continue to pray that there will someday be a cure to this disease so no other family suffers the way we all are.
Thank you all.
