Which he asked me to post, so here goes:
Teresa has reached a point where we’re talking about hospice. She’s been losing weight steadily, with no end in sight. Hospice is being… hospice.
There are a pair of drugs she’s taking that are…slowing the cancer down, and they wont help her unless she stops taking them, as I understand. Apparently, being fully bedridden, and constantly losing weight isn’t sick enough…
My problem is after 3 years of constantly being on call, 24/7/365, my body simply.. isn’t healing up like it should. I’ve gained 100 pounds, I now have full blown diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea. I’m having to lift the wife in and out of bed, and my back and left arm are simply not holding up. I need a chance to refit and repair, but I don’t see it coming any time soon.
But we’re holding on. We have electricity, internet, hot water, air conditioning ( in the bedroom) and a working shower now. I’m gearing up to go clean out the storage at Oklahoma, and all of this is possible because of you guys.
You people gave my wife her final wish, and I wanted you to know that she’s enjoying it. Sure, it’s rough, and imperfect around the edges, and the bathroom ceiling leaks, but for her ( and me, but most importantly her) it’s -home-. I wish I could express my gratitude, but… I have no words, only tears. Thank you all, so very much.
You’re welcome, Roguetek, and you are in our prayers constantly.
Be well and concentrate on the good things. Leave your worries to G-d (easier said than done, I know) and know that we have your back.
