Hi all. I am new to the post. My husband has been fighting this for 5 years now. It all started in the colon, then the liver, then the lung and now the brain and the colon. He has been in hospice now for over a month. He has been 4 or 5 days with no food and very little liquid. He has been paralyzed from the waist down for over 2 months from the brain mets. He was a pretty big guy (5'3" and 225 when this started in mid August). He was running a fever that they thought was the "terminal" fever, but it went down a couple of days ago. They have stopped his decadron a few days ago. Does anyone have any words of wisdom of what I can expect? I have 3 children to prepare for what is to come. God bless you all.
