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.

Oh Rick, tears are in my eyes and my heart is heavy for you. I know you cherish the time you have with Debbie and words cannot express how wonderful the devotion and love you are pouring out on Debbie.
You and Debbie will be in my prayers til she goes Home.

Rick. This news has hit me so hard I just don't know what to say. There are no words to convey the sadness in my heart for you. I just pray that our lord will comfort you in these days of grief. 

Pat and I remember her smiling face when we saw you two at the fire station 6 years ago. We pray for her to be in comfort with her forth coming journey. They say only the good die young and that certainly seems to have been the case with your family. We share your sorrow. God Bless

Pat and Frank.

Oh Rick!  I had to take a break from reading your whole letter to compose myself.  Our heart is full for you both
with love and sorrow.  We remember spending a couple of days with you both in CO. and how happy and fun 
Debbie is.  I can't even imagine how hard this is for you both.  I know, besides the wonderful memories you have both made together, this is so hard to see her in these declining days and nights.  We pray for comfort for her and strength for you.  You know we're always here if you need a sounding post from hearts that love and
support you both.  Our hearts are heavy with your pain.  Always on our minds,
Love ya
Jeri and Nat

 Rick,

You have been in my heart for the past six months.  I think of you and Debbie often.  Now you are both facing the end.  I admire both of you for your impressive courage.  Debbie for saying "No more."  She wants to die at home.  And you, dear Rick, for respecting her wishes.  You will be together until the end, without machines separating you.  With medical professionals trying to give Debbie one last day, one last hour, one last minute.  You have both taken control of this situation.  You are going to do it your way.  I cannot tell you how much I admire you for this decision.

Ken and I also decided Ken would die at home.  He and I were together until the end.  Just Ken and me.  As it had been our whole lives.  I would not change this for anything.

I am sending love and continuing courage to both of you.  I will continue to keep you in my heart.

With all my love,

Marty (and Angel Genny and Mosette and Si Si)

 Rick,

I am so, so sorry.  Debbie was a beautiful, loving woman who touched everyone she met (and a lot of us she didn't meet).  We are all better people for having known her.  I know you heart is shattered into a million pieces, Rick.  Please lean on family and friends to help you get through this.  And know that you had the best marriage ever with the best woman ever.  Please try to remember the good times.

With love,

Marty (and Angel Genny and Mosette and Si Si)

No words are available to show our sorrow for your loss.  Debbie's foot print is
there on so many events in your families life.  I pray for strength to
surround you and your family at this time.  Know we're here for you.
Debbie was sick and tired of being sick and tired.  Now she has peace.
We are sending love and support for you.  We love you,
Jeri and Nat
