Well, the surgery didn't go well, they couldn't clear the blockage. I was told that he has only a couple of weeks left. :'-(

Thank you all for your kind words. They transferred him to the icu since he now appears to have an infection.

My procedure went well yesterday, no pain, just a little sore. My nurse is now Rick's nurse tonight. They're taking good care of him.

Cyn, you already know how I feel about this:(

I understand that Time is an even more precious commodity for you both at this time, so I want you guys to have as much time together as possible. However, if you need to text or talk, you certainly know where to reach me:)

Just sayin'...

If Rick still wants to talk a minute...and if not, we've already talked through you:)

Tell him from me a Big Texas Thank You for having me into his life and allowing me to share his life and struggles - through you:)

The memory I will take away from this sadness, will be you reading my posts to him - and Rick turning down the sound, so you could read what I wrote to him...even during the Olympics:)

He's a good man - and I just want him to hear it again from me - through you:)

Love you both!

-Craig

I haven't been on the Boards for a long time because I was using avoidance as a strategy to deal with everything. You reached out to me when my husband was having the HIPEC procedure and gave me lots of good information. I appreciated that. I wish for peaceful days ahead for both you and your husband and emotionally healing for you as this journey sure takes a toll on the mind. One thing we both can be so thankful for is that we had a chance to spend a big part of our lives with the love of our life. Lisa
