It's been a while since I have checked in, but pulled myself together this morning to get online for a few minutes. I am continuing to stand my ground with EC. Hospice continues to do a great job both in pain control as well as emotional support. I have had a couple of bad pain days but my hospice team got things under control quickly. I appreciate all the support I have recieved from all of you and pray that you will continue to pray for me and those who are taking care of me during this difficult time. I was able to walk outside yesterday for the first time in 2 weeks to see my horse. It was great. Love you all, Sam stage IV

Sam!

So glad you could pop on here to update us. I hope your weather is as nice as ours has been in Michigan - sunny and beautiful!

Very glad to hear that hospice is doing a great job in both pain and emotional support - you/we need both.

We love you too and think of you every single day!

Dear Sam,
I was just thinking of you yesterday and wondering how you were doing. So glad you have an excellent hospice team and they got that pain under control. I go crazy when I read that someone is suffering unbearable pain, there is no reason for it!!! Not in this day. We don't care how much you write, it just means so much to hear from you. Glad you got to see your horse. many hugs and prayers,
