  • Bad news

    I've posted a bit to Facebook but haven't had much time to get on here. Monday I took Sharon into the hospital for some tests, I figured something was wrong but we needed to do some scheduled tests. They ran an MRI and that showed the cancer has spread to the brain. It wasn't a spot, more like 40 of them, most near the brain stem. I spent the day with her today and she was understanding enough to get some legal documents signed and notarized, but her speech is slurring and she's starting to get confused. She can no longer stand, but is able to feed herself a little, and is conscious of who is around her. The doctors feel she won't make it through the weekend. Today has been so hard that I'm almost numb. Sharon is comfortable and we feel it isn't going to do her any good knowing how serious things are, so I'm having to stay strong and keep everyone else calm so she can enjoy a few people's visits. We had a visit from our minister and had a nice talk today. I don't know if she has any knowledge of her condition, and isn't saying anything just to keep me from hurting, she knows she has a wristband that says DNR. I'll let you know more as time goes on, or at least let one of the members here know so they can post it. Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts.

        So sorry for the both of you.Been there myself.When you get feeling really down,just remember that the sun will rise the next day and continue to rise and although it will be hard,YOU WILL LIVE THROUGH IT! The pain will never go away but don't let it control you.
        Live for her memory.You owe that to her.
