Re: Larry is healed

Anji...I'm sorry to hear about Larry's passing but happy that he did not suffer. I lost my husband two months ago and he had a similar experience with no pain and speaking with us right before he slipped into a coma. My sympathy to you and your family as you grieve your wonderful husband....

Re: When it's time, you know...

I'm sorry to read this news but you're right about when it's time you know. My husband has also started hospice. His body was getting tired from all the treatment and there wasn't anymore treatment options for him.
My thoughts and prayers are with you....

Re: Supremely romantic idea, but I don't recommend it

Bev...

I'm totally with you on the driving. I hate driving also but have been doing it because my husband can't and i'm not liking it because he's a backseat driver.

Best of luck to you and Steve...I will be praying for good results....

Re: Ready to Stop Further Chemo Treatments

It's a really tough decision to make and I believe that my husband is starting to feel that way as well but doesn't want to bring it up. He's been through a lot and more so the last 7 months.

Re: Lymphedema?

My husband had major swelling in both legs and gained 10 pounds in 3 weeks due to fluid. He had such a difficult time getting around because his legs felt like weights. For some reason, his oncologist wasn't sure why he was having the swelling until I mentioned lymphedema (and thank you surfingon) a...
