After 5 years my wife is coming to the end of her Journey as you can see by her signature information she put a real battle. she has been in the hospital twice in the last two weeks, Feet swelling ,fluid in the lungs , her kidneys functions has drop off the last 7 days the Dr. said
I had a meeting with the oncologist today , No good news..No clinical trials.. her health to so compromised ..so talked on wants next??? Hospice care is what he recommended ..We have a meeting tomorrow with Hospice...
I did ask him how much time is left ..he said about a month.. I know no one can predict how much time is left but after 5 years I can see the big change in the past few weeks so I believe time is short. after our meeting he did come up a talk to her in the room about her condition , also saying it was time to look in Hospice and she agree. She never ask about time left but I know she knows it short.
I want to THANK everyone on the Colon Forum for all the help and information I got over the past 5 years, I didn't post a lot but readied almost everyday.
THANK YOU ALL!!!!
