Another rough day for my husband Steve. It is 9:00 PM right now and he is eating for the first time today. He has thrown up twice and feels crummy. This morning he finally decided to go into Hospice Care. The nurse with Solstice Hospice came over and did all the paperwork and answered all our questions. She’s great. She’s coming back on Wednesday and she’s bringing drugs. I think this was a good decision. He is too sick to continue radiation therapy and going to numerous doctor appointments. Now we will focus on comfort, specifically managing the pain and the nausea. In the past couple of weeks a new tumor has blossomed under his right knee. I am amazed at how fast it has grown, and it is beginning to cause pain. It’s the size of a golf ball. It will be hard to leave him tomorrow when I go to work. So glad I’m only working part time. But he is never alone. Our grandson is here, and my daughter-in-law is close by. And neighbors are always saying they will be there when needed. No worries.
