Mike will be with the Lord soon

Yesterday was rough. His two adult daughters came by to see him but he doesn't know anything at this time. The other daughter comes in today at 2pm. It is so hard for them to see their Dad like this. I remember when my Dad died from cancer. I was blessed to be able to hold his hand until the Lord took him.

I have his pain under control now but it took most of yesterday to get it like this. Hospice kept having to up the meds. He now takes 2.0 liquid morphine every 1 to 2 hours if needed, 2 valiums every 3 to 4 hours, 2 steroid pills 4 times a day and his seizure pills. I have to crush the pills now and put in a eye dropper to give him. I keep a log with times that I give him all these meds or I would be a mess trying to remember.

The hospice team didn't think he would make it through the night but he did. No food or water yesterday but I do use the eyedropper to give him sips of water.

He coughs more now and hurts when he does, he moans and sometimes holds his head. His head hurt so bad yesterday morning he was crying to the Lord to take him.

I promised him no more pain and I mean it. And I told my children if something like this happens to me, please drug me up I don't want this horrible pain. I hate CANCER, it's horrible, as we all know on this board.

I know I have your prayers and I thank you for this. The nights are hard for me because I'm alone. I could do something around the house but all I find myself doing is going to his room and looking at him.

Love all of you,

Linda
