In my post ‘I will see her again‘, I concluded with the following –
These family members know my life may be short. The once small cancer that was found almost 2 years ago, is now taking over my body. The treatments may help slow down the progression, but ultimately my cancer will take my life.
In today’s post, I begin with the following –
In last Friday’s post ‘…out of my nose soon‘, I wrote about a small surgery to take place to insert a ‘G Tube’, from my stomach to the outside of my body. This ‘G Tube’ will provide me a way to release the pressure from my stomach and small intestines without a tube going through my nose. This ‘G Tube’ should bring me some relieve, however it brings on a whole another set of challenges. With this tube, I will no longer eat through my mouth; but instead through an IV.
The surgery last Thursday was a success and after several more days of observation it was time to leave the hospital.
I spent my last 13 days in the hospital and arrived home again yesterday to the RV. I am very glad to be out of the hospital and to be feeling better today.
Did you notice the pictures associated with last Friday’s post? Just viewing some of the pictures, some of you know, a few may not have figured it out, and it may be others are not ready to accept or acknowledge.
I did not need to write the words, the associated pictures displayed the words in plain for all to see.
I left the hospital yesterday and now am back home in my RV to start my Hospice care.
Cancer will take my life. I have always referred to this cancer in my body as my cancer as it does not belong to anyone else. My cancer will take my life. Those pictures associated to last Friday’s post revealed just how much my cancer has taken over and my fight is coming to an end. My body and mind are worn and it is time to prepare for what is ultimately to take place.
The family visits of past weeks are over and my body is tired and mind is ready.
Hospice will begin this week and changes will take place in many areas for both Gary and me. If you read my post yesterday, starting this week; the amount of posts will be reduced.
As always, I appreciate every one of you for stopping by each day to read and comment. You my friends; your support and encouragement all have a huge positive impact on me.
But, now it is time – time for my cancer to take my life.
