My husband is losing the battle


Recommended Posts


Well my husband has tired. He is so weak now he cannot move. His cancer is taking over like wildfire. It is very sad. :( He fought a darn good fight - and he just is too weak to fight anymore. :( His lymph nodes on the other side are now as big as grapes. It was the lymph nodes on the side w/the originating tumor that he had the radiation therapy for - which damaged his voice permanently and caused him dysphagia - which requires a feeding tube. I doubt he will ever taste food again. :(

I have been in contact w/hospice. It is time now... (sigh)

God Bless you all - keep fighting!

i just answered your other post not knowing he was this bad. So sorry but as Don and Christina said people have come out of hospice to be better. I have a friend who is a nurse in hospice and she has told me that it does happen. So hang in there for now, tomorrow may be better....

My prayers are with you - I hope you find the peace you are seeking at this time - but, please remember 20% of all patients admitted into Hospice are discharged... that is quite a good percentage - So, although things may seem to be coming to a close, you must never doubt that miracles can and do happen - Love, Sharon
