Things are very bad here, I am afraid. I cancelled our family trip to the coast as he is just getting worse by the day - bowel incontinence and very weak. I have a substance that is going to trial but has shown remarkable results for PCa when combined with 2DG or metformin. However, it is very potent and can kill if given in too high a dose, even though it does not interfere with healthy cells in any way. This is some of the research we don't hear about
. I don't want to give it to him in his horribly weakened state, and the MD who is helping me is unsure as well. I spent 5G on it a week ago so that's more down the drain trying to rescue my guy from this crazy disease. More to the point, I am so fearful and exhausted at this point. Every five minutes he needs something, catheter full, visit to the loo (usually too late) water, food, different food, lift me, lie me down, lift me again, find my glasses etc. The dogs are not getting out and are misbehaving and I have work to do on my main account. Little things like the roof suddenly leaking seem like major things as they all pile up. He needs care. His poor arms and hands bleed and crack constantly and are purple in colour. My poor guy. So palliative support is supposed to call "by Thursday."
