Even though it is raining outside I think today is going to be a good day.

Well it appears as if the bolus feeding goes well today, David will get to come home from the hospital today. I came home a couple hours ago to get some things for him to have for the ride home and low and behold there were two letters from Wells Fargo. It appears there is some miscommunication there as the letters we received today and postmarked a day after the previous letter we received seem to indicate they are considering David's remodification. That makes me so happy, I am believing God will protect us and not let us lose the house. David was so devastated when he thought we would have to move before Christmas. I don't know where the glitch is at Wells Fargo, but the stress of the previous letter almost did me in. I was so excited to see that we still have a good chance at getting the remod. Thanks to all those who pray for us and are here for us during the journey. Oh btw the resident who came in today asked about the neck dissection. This is the second resident who has asked. I guess we will know more next week when we see Dr. Gal. I am looking forward to having my husband home.

glad to know Wells Fargo is reconsidering your request. Now you and your husband can go HOME and get on with getting him thru treatment and healed of this lousy disease.

Wow, I can't imagine the stress of being a caregiver, newlywed and wondering if you will have your home during the Holiday season.

I remember I was not quite half-way thru treatments when I came home for Christmas (109 mile drive up the valley to my home) and the tree was up and all the presents were under the tree...it was a hard drive for me, but being home made it all worth it.

Know that your online friends are with you and I am keeping you and David in my prayers. (Even though I originally thought it was you who had the cancer) ...say hello to David for me.

Best,

Tim

Tim,
Sometimes when I see my husband suffer I wonder why? Why does he have to go through this and why are we in the midst of this crisis so early in our marriage. Well I am just going to believe God has a plan for our lives and my husband will conquer this cancer and we will have a wonderful life together. However, right now this sucks big time.

First, happy news that David is coming HOME. And also glad to hear that news with the bank. One less thing not to worry about as much.

It's tough dealing with the day to day things in life while dealing with this thing called cancer. The world doesn't stop as much as we'd like it to. So many stresses to deal with all at the same time.

I'm so glad we have some very supportive friends here on ACN and are with us during the beginning stages of this frightening experience. I feel like everyone here has our back and understands and are there to lift us up when we need it. Bless them for their words of encouragment.

one hand doesn't know what the other is doing!!?? I am SO glad you received this new letter, and that you might not have to go thru the BS of trying to move at the same time fight the C battle. Maybe give the bank a call and make sure they know what they are doing and saying (can you even call a human at Wells Fargo??)

Congrats on hubby coming home....I'll bet he'll feel way better once there.

Well David didn't react to the org tube feeding the way the doctors hoped. He got sick from the feeding while I went home for a shower. So they stopped feeding from 10:30 until 5. The doctor said he needs to stay a little longer until he can tolerate 6 cans of ensure in a day. He is at 1.5. Oh well better safe than sorry. So another night for me on the hospital provided couch. All I can say is Nyquil here I come.

Tim I'm glad you enjoy aspects of your job. Also I am posting from my phone and I am hating the spell check. It changed PEG tube. Lol

Vivian,
I too had a really hard time with my feedings. I kept getting sick after each feeding. They did all kinds of tests to determine if there was a blockage or something and nothing ever showed up. My GI finally ordered me a continuous feed pump. They started me on it in the hospital and then one was delivered to me at home. I spent 3 days in the hospital before we found this to work. It is a very slow but continuous feed. Once I got on that I didn't get sick again. I could feed all night while sleeping and whenever I was just sitting and watching tv. After a while you can increase the flow and the feed will go slightly faster until you find a speed that works for him. It's super easy to use and not very big, smaller than an IV pump. Just something to think about, maybe it will work for your hubby.
Take care,
Billie

Congrats. Now, back to focusing on other stressors. Hope the docs figure out a feeding method that's successful soon.
