Topic: I had this feeling!!!

Things aren't good. Catscan revealed that the tumors have grown together and Dennis'  liver is shutting down. Hospice will be involved tomorrow. I had this ache in my gut and seen things that prompted me to take him to the hospital. He's fought this and the courage and stamina to fight this is admirable. I will pray for everyone fighting this! Thank you all for being there. I'm on Facebook and email is ttjonestopcat@aol.com. I'll keep you posted and can help support if you would like me to
God Bless You

Dear Teresa,  I remember these days vividly. Hold him, talk to him, sing to him, even if he is asleep. You will find strength you never knew you had for you are his wife, his best friend. May you both find peace. Love and hugs to you and Dennis.

Re: I had this feeling!!!

Thanks youre so kind...hes home tonite and resting. I got sad today cause I cant converse with him. The pain meds are probably the reason. I feel like Im slowly losing him. I would like to talk to him again. I made him smile though. A nurse I think will be here tomorrow. Hospice has been very good so far. Paitient and compassionate!
Again thank you!
Teresa

Re: I had this feeling!!!

Teresa, you may not be able to 'converse' but please remember that he can hear you. Talk to him even if he doesn't seem to hear, tell him that you love him and tell him that you are going to be ok. He will hear you. Glad Hospice is working out well.
Teresa, about 1 week before Teddy passed I just had to sit down and write a poem, I think you will relate:

Time is growing closer, I can see it in his eyes,
Time is growing closer, but we’ll have no sad ‘goodbyes’.
Memories abound from our precious moments spent,
To God it is, I’m sending, the most “precious” package sent.

These last few months of knowing, we’ve made a honeymoon,
In my mind a vision of an eternal, beautiful afternoon.
He is still my charming Prince, who taught me how to love,
And someday we’ll be together, in Heaven up above.

I will see him riding stars, I will see him in the moon,
And someday you will see us dancing to our favorite tune.
He will touch my face so gently, like he’s known to do,
It’s not goodbye forever, with memories bad or few.

All our love, my sweet one, is ours to hold so tight,
Until once again together on a mystical, magic night,
We will be again united to celebrate our dance around the sun,
And know that our eternity together, has only just begun.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: I had this feeling!!!

Hi folks
Dennis is nonresponsive but I still talk to him. His nurse tech Chaplin and social worker are God sends. He seems to be in no pain which I am grateful for
It was intense for him. It's been emotional for the children and I
We have been married 24 years and three children-Lauren 24-Dennis. Kyle. 19 and Trevor 10. God bless you-all!! If it weren't for this site I would of not had the knowledge to be able to see what was going on and get him help when needed. Thank you so much!
