Well, I would like to share my final story from the hospital, we passed our swallowing test today, we had the NG tube about 3 pm today, and we are now eating our first foods, it is only soup and tea but it is a start. He is thrilled he said it taste like "GOLD" he is doing so good. We will still have the feeding tube and go home with it but thats okay, we can handle that. He took his first medicine by mouth and now food, so we are making progress. I "WORE MY SHOES OUT" AND PACKED AWAY MY BIG GIRLS PANTIES" but thats okay I will keep it that way. I will share those with anyone that wants them. Would I walk those shoes again you bet!!! It wasn't an easy road, we saw HEAVEN, but GOD and the angels sent him back, his work on earth wasn't done. I about lost my husband and I learned alot of how esophogeal cancer works. I was so scared I never left the hospital, only twice did i leave, i have slept by his side, i did things i thought i would never do things i did for my husband, I gues when you take them for better or for worse in sickness and in health, you take it all.
To all the ones, that is deciding to have the surgery its a tough tough surgery but you have to have faith and you have to trust your doctors, you have to have the faith in your doctors, and know you trust them to accept the what they tell you.
I will be glad to help any one on this with questions they might have on this type of surgery.
To William Marshall, and KITTEN how would I have gotten through these steps, days and nights without you, to William, thanks for always uplifiting me when I just didn't think I could handle anymore, or when I thought he was going to go to heaven, you were always there for me, Kitten, thanks for your support and help when I just knew I couldn't do it, and you just kept telling me i would get through thiss.
Take care everyone I think I am finally signing off as a caregiver, and now we are going to be a survivor.
