I have very sad news to report. Charlie passed away Sat. night Aug. 21. He had a gi bleed; low blood pressure, electrolyte issues, low blood counts, severely dehydrated. He was admitted Thursday afternoon and was doing better; but on Sat. began having problems breathing and they had to keep pushing fluids to keep blood pressure up. Onc. had discussed this with us Thurs. afternoon and we decided to opt for DNR should that occur which happened Sat. night. We were all surprised as we thought he would probably pull out of this episode and we'd keep on fighting. I loved him so much and do not know how I'll get along without him but will find some way as that is would he would have me to do. He is going to be cremated according to his wishes and visitation is Wed. and his service on Thur. My best friend is staying with me right now from Chatt. So, you can imagine what a basketcase I am now. Just wanted to let y'all know and please keep us in your prayers as I know you will and to everyone out there "Don't ever give up!" Fight this monster with all your might and God's help! I love y'all!
