I don't post as much here as I used to, or should, but I have Facebook on my phone so it fast and easy. For that I'm sorry.
As you all know Debbie has had health issues for several years with a lung cancer diagnosis in Sept. She has small cell closed sarcoma, as our regular doctor told us, if your going to have cancer, this is NOT the one you want. It is very aggressive and can never be put in remission. The tumor in Debbie's left lung was found on accident and the size of a golf ball. They told us that while it can never be put in recession, it is very manageable. The goal, to hold it in check. The issues, Debbie has M.S. Chemo and MS do not like each other and there's a 50% chance of it causing issue's. KU Med is one of the leading caner hospitals in the nation and number one in Missouri. To everyone's surprise they shrank to tumor to 0. Gone! The trouble is, this cancer is like a roach, run it out of one area and it heads to another,. It's favorite places are the brain and liver.
The long and short of it is Debbie has spent 75 days in the hospital since Halloween night. A 21 day stay, a 23 day stay, a 19 day stay, a 6 day stay home 5 days and back in for 6 days. The chemo has done it's damage, Debbie has lost the use of her legs, had 4 strokes while in the hospital in February. She only has her left arm now. She has one major infection after another. She came home two weeks ago Friday, and once home she said no more. She said she was NOT going back just keep her pain free. She was happy when she came home, but she has had a major down turn, there are days I'm the only one she knows, even the days she doesn't know who she is, she knows me. We now communicate by her squeezing my hand. Hospice has taken over her care and at the rate of decline they figure I will have he two weeks, a month tops.
She is home where she will remain, I promised her that I would never put her in a nursing home and I never will. I take care of her. We will be married 44 years in August and have been together 46.
Please keep her in your prays as she makes her journey home to be with Jesus.
