Thanks all. Dreamer44 and to Jitters for your input and words.
Jitters so much at once and so sudden losses - so hard to make sense at times or to even absorb. It is time to take care you.....thoughts on your biopsy.
I do have questions on lots of things that may have been missed, but don't really think anything would have changed the bottom line.
Our last two sons (the youngest and oldest) were here tonight. Enough separate that we got to tell them by themselves. They were rather stoic outwardly. My daughter and son yesterday went through some tears. My son-in-law really broke down today when he was picking up the kids. One more to tell on Saturday, the really special one, granddaughter Asia. She's has a break from West Point and will be home. The little ones were wondering briefly why my oldest was in with Papa and they were closed out and their dad and I were in the garage talking. The little one told us the was weird
My husband looks terrible tonight. He didn't interact much after he was done telling them and is running a fever. He looks scary. He could hardly make it to bed. If we had started hospice, I could call them. If I called the Dr., they would say go to the ER. I don't know if he's over done it and is just spent. He did go in to work and told them to post the job, but he would try to get them through - software gov't security stuff that again I don't have a "need to know"
. The boss he told - there are 3 owners - response was to ask him if he could pray over him. Mike thought it was cool. Certainly would probably have never happened in the service or at P&G or GE.
Jitters: he wants to stay in our bed for as long as possible too. So that worked ok? I've been trying to figure everything out. Thanks for input on hospice. I hope it all works out as well for us. I think I would be overwhelmed if that many people in and out. We're hoping for the bump up without chemo, but it's already been 2 weeks now and he seems worse. He did find out about
a couple deaths in his family - an aunt and an uncle.
We have had a long run and I am so glad that some of you are having good luck with Xtandi/XL184/and other treatments. Keep fighting.
