Update on Gerald

Hi

I just wanted to let you know that Gerald made his trip to his sugar shack the other day. A group of friends put him in his rocking chair and put that in a toboggan and pulled him up there - where he had a beer and a cigerette. After that we took him to the hospital for what we thought was his last journey. Well he is home now - and he is still with us. He is dropping more weight (probably 90 lbs now) and is confused a lot of the time. His ct scan came back and his brain met is 2x2.5 cm with a substantial amount of edema. He is having a hard time getting up the mucous and he is very very weak. I regret to say that it is - as our family doctor said - time for him to go home. His family is here from Newfoundland. Ger keeps hanging in there though. He is still eating a bit of pureed food and his heart is steady. I really thought that we could get out of this mess but the cancer was too much. I have hope - but I think the hope is now for him to go as pain free and quickly as possible. How long does this last. It feels like forever. Thanks for the support over the last few monthes.

((Heather)) -- I hardly know what to say. You are an incredible woman whose love for Gerald is so clear in all you write. I'm so happy that he took his sugar shack journey. I think that the time when you stop praying for the miracle and begin praying to let a loved one go peacefully is the hardest thing a person can do. Be brave dear soul and may God be with you each step of this difficult journey.

I'm so sorry to read this. I'm glad he got to make his trip and I am glad he is home and surrounded by those who love him. My thoughts and heart go out to you and Gerald and your families.
