    Happy New Year

    Considering that Bill was released out of the Hospital to begin a new phase of Pallitive Care only.....it was a bittersweet Chrismas. We are sure or at least relative sure this will be our last Christmas...Christmas eve it looked like maybe that would not be but we got better control on the pain and we had a nice Christmas at our Grandaugters....Now we are looking to ring in the New Year much the same way We sleep as we can . I average 2 hours a night most nights if that The cancer has spread and the tumors are now larger than the Pancrease itself. All chemo failed even an experiment

    Thank you Leah you have no idea how much I needed to hear these words Bill is hanging on each day is a juggle of pain meds vs the pain Each day is unto itself now. You give me courage and hope and remind me where to find the strength when of myself I cant barely make it on another 2 hours of sleep broken up through the day. Love Karen and Bill

    The help we have received to date is from our church. God bless each one of those who contributed to that. In addition to my strokes we found out a year ago my husband had metastasic cancer of the pancreas. He is in Hospice. Could our families help yes do they only with words or the ride here or there.. I love them anyway God is here for us Karen

    I dont know in my case as I am a survivor of 4 strokes and a TIA that I will ever not have that fear I think though I am more concerned about the aneurisms I would be dead before I hit the floor. That is ok as long as I dont suffer Karen

    There is no denying that he is getting sicker and sicker I love him so but how much can he endure for the love of his family? One day one day at a time love Karen
  15. LeahI do know about all the knots in the stomach. Bill is now just starting what will be his last chemotherapy option I swore I could never go from being the cared for to the caregiver and slowly but surely that is what I have done. Out of necessity there was no one else to do it and it had to be done Now at last the home nurse comes to check on him every week now that he has this pump installed But again who would have dreamed that my beloved darling Bill could have survived his devastating cancer that alone survived it since Last October. I am beyond exhausted and worn the doctor sai
