:-)  Thank tou all for taking an interest in my posting, this means that you are very interested in your own health or someone you love. Thanks Carla for your reply. Yes my wife was on haspice but only use them as a last ditch effort for pain relief or if your body has simply given up. Hospice has some very powerful drugs that will eventually put you in a coma. Opium, Ativan, Morphine, Time release patches etc. And what happens is if a persons liver is invoved such as my wife's was there may be a delayed release of all of these drugs and you may show no releif from pain right away especially if you have become almost immune to these drugs. All at ounce these drugs may be released by your body's system and kill you, like as happened to my wife. So my suggestion would be to only use hospice as a very lasy resort when all other prospects have been exhausted.
                                            Bless you all.

Please keep us posted on the book you are writing now and keep coming back to the site.  It should be helpful to you and you will be able to help others.  Do you have a support group you attend?
 
Take care!

     Dear Carla, I have no support group, just me and my grown son and daughter( very special and helpful). Other than them I rely on an inner instinct that tells me to help others, I'm not real religious, but I do pray every day and night. I take everything I do and say very serious, which would explain why I am having such a hard time losing my patient, my love,my hope in life. I tried to give up and then I thought, what the heck, give this life a run for it's money. Thats why I write, I spend all of my energy at helping others and right now I am very angry at cancer. I hope you are feeling better, share your problems with me, I'm not one of those ( it's all about me people) although people reaching out to others for help and information have a hard time thinking about others as that they have such a hard time just living day to day. Use me!                Gods Speed,

Hobnob,
 
I ordered your book yesterday. 
 
Me, I'm doing better.  I spent a night down at Vanderbilt Hospital this weekend.  I thought I was going to be there five days.  While I'm not at all disappointed to get to come home four days early, I don't think I got all the information I went for.  I was just diagnosed with epilepsy last summer and took early retirement from my job.  I have myoclonic seizures, which are jerking of the extremities and they are always in the middle of the night when I am struggling to go to sleep.  I have also had difficulty with bright lights and loud music.  Basically, I thought I was going in to find out if I stayed in a situation with music and brights if I would have a seizure and also to find out why my seizures are still not under control after a year.
 
I really like my neurologist, but at a teaching hospital you see the residents and fellows when you are in for tests.  All I basically learned is that I am not going to have a seizure from music and lights, it is just anxiety of the thought of having one in public, which I never have.  I didn't learn anything else, so I'm a little frustrated and this doctor knew it and even called me at home on Sunday.  I guess he knows I am going to give Dr. Arain, my neurologist my opinion of him, which at 56 years old, I pretty much do that any way.  Dr. Arain did try to call me today and we played phone tag.  I think when I talk to him or see him I will get more information.
 
No more venting!

   Another day, Diddo on the ( no more venting). Miracles of the modern worlds communication system astound our imagination. When alexander Bell, years ago invented and introduced the telephone, he was considered a wizard. But he only scratched the surface of what, today, has been one of the wonders of our age. He found that human voice could be transmitted over wire. Since that eventful day men and women have by experimentation, discovered other channels through which messages can can be sent to the far corners of the earth. Without these existing channels in the air, provided by an all wise creator, men's and women's efforts would fall to the ground. How easy then, for god to also have established spiritual channels whereby he can communicate with men and women and men and women with him!
