For the last couple of days my husband has been very sleepy - almost coma-like. He's been having a hard time getting the right words out and he would fall asleep mid-sentence. I suspected either he'd had another stroke (though not as significant as the first) or else he may have mets to the brain. We were told last week by the doctor that he'd never witnessed anything grow so fast as the lump on his neck. When they biopsied, it was cancer. He had a pet scan last Friday and today we met with the doctor again. Cancer has spread to his bones, his liver and his stomach. We have met with hospice today. I am just so sad. I guess I've half expected to deal with this from the start but I didn't think it would happen this fast. I wish there was something I could do to get ahold of myself.
