Linda74 Posted October 14, 2008 Share Posted October 14, 2008 A few weeks ago, my husband was diagnosed with stage IV Adenocarcinoma....tumors in lungs, ribs, spine, pelvis, brain and adrenal glands. Last week we were in Yale New Haven Hospital because he had bilateral pulmonary embolisms and they saw that he had also had several small strokes in the brain. We were there three days. There was some confusion as to where the clots were coming from. The implanted a "filter" to stop the clots and he is now on Lovemax which I inject daily....The miracle is that our dear daughter was getting married this weekend....And he was able to walk her down the aisle and dance with her. We are back to Yale today, but we got a beautiful day with 200 friends and family and memories forever. I know we have a long hardfight ahead of us. He has lost so much weight and is so frail and ill....but he had the strength to make it to the wedding and now we must keep fighting. He has had one round of chemo....carbo platinum and Olympia, i believe. We were hoping for Avastin but the brain involvement eliminates that....Thank you for all of your support. The wedding donations all went to Lungevity. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
