Just hopped on to give you all an update on Don. Don continues to rest peacefully at home. Yesterday his medicine was slightly changed to give him more rest and less agitation. There are absolutely no bowel sounds at all, but the kidneys did start working again. This probably is good because at least he won't have any pain from that issue.
Caitlin and I are hanging in there. The days and nights are long and hard as you can all imagine and I pray that God will allow Don his wish to just go to sleep and not wake up. That would be a blessing considering all that Don has had to go through this past couple of months.
I did contact an attorney Friday only to find out that he is currently defending one of the doctors (the gastro doc who told Don to learn to live with the pain!). I doubt we will have a case, but at least I am going to try. These doctors and smaller hospitals need to learn when to say the situation is beyond them and do the right thing and send you to your larger hospital. The only doctors who were at all honest with us were the doctors at Univ of Mich hospital.
We are keeping all of you in our prayers and thoughts and I am so sad to see the newbies come on board here. I am glad they find us, but I sure wish they didn't have to. I would gladly give me life if Don could be the last person to ever die from this horrible cancer and everyone else could be spared this.
I do hope that William and Loretta will be back - God knows we need them.
