Bev'sSister Posted October 15, 2007 Share Posted October 15, 2007 Hi All and thank you so much for you kind responses to my other posts. They were truly appreciated. Beverly was sent home from the hospital on Saturday. Her counts were up and looking good..the doctor told her that she will have to eat and get built back up if she ever intends to get more chemo. I think he just said that to make her feel there is a chance. She has never lost her hope though. She is on the patch for pain..the doctor said that the cancer is back on her lung. Her breathing is hard. I don't really know how to explain or describe what she is going through now. I think the pain meds are helping to keep her numb through all of this..because she has hardly shed a tear. She sleeps a lot. We talked some..but not really, you know. I told her that I loved her..she kinda asked "why me" and I just told her that God knew she could handle it better than anyone else in our family could. Honestly, I don't know if I am in denial or if she is going to get better and get over this hump, or if she is going to die soon. I know she was really weak and I don't think she should have ever gotten that weak..but it is hard to know what to do. The doctor suggested we think about Hospice..but at the same time he told her that if she opts for Hospice..she would have trouble with her insurance company, if somehow she builds back up to do more chemo, because for hospice to come in the doctor would have to say that she is uncurable or something to that effect and that her insurance will not cover her after that. (She is on blue cross==Cobra)..Anyone know if this is true, or did I hear wrong? What about home health? From what I understand the dr. has to order this also?? I am kinda in a fog right now..I will try and keep in touch. I hope my writing made some sense. Love to all, Bobby Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
