Topic: Uncle losing battle w/cc
I've frequented this site for the last 18 months, but haven't posted yet. I have a 70 yr old uncle who has battled this difficult disease for 20 months now. Unfortunately, he's slipping and and his time is probably limited. I just want to say that all of you on here are extremely inspirational. CC is a terrible disease. But reading some of your posts are both heartbreaking and heart warming. In my uncle's case, the doctors gave home only 3-6 months after diagnosis, but he may make it to 2 yrs. He is an otherwise healthy person with no serious illnesses until now. At least he has gotten to see a new grandchild 6 months ago. He recently had a stent installed, but that doesn't seem to be working all that well. He's already had 2 infections and I fear the effectiveness of the stent is waning.
I want to thank all who contribute to this site, it's truly marvelous to have the information and share the experiences of all.
