It was a sad day yesterday. My husband's co worker and friend passed away from cancer.Started in his stomach not long after I was dx.So it's been 3 years for him.He had pneumonia in Oct and they found it had spread.Just the other day when he and I were talking,we laughed and laughed that day ribbing my husband. My husband goes with me to feed stray cats in different areas every night.Now most men wont do that.Anyway my husband, me and this guy got close the last few months. My husband got his tools from work and was taking them to him weekly. Our friend had a hard time getting around.He asked my husband about a ramp.If the weather was warmer my husband would do it. We wanted him to get around.Sunday my husband took him some tools.As my husband left he bent over to hug his friend.His friend said LOVE YOU MAN. It upset my husband.Since he thinks now his friend knew. Our friend fell Monday and Tues.I was going on line to find a group to pay and help put up a ramp for him.He knew the cost but had no money since off work. The guys wife told my husband Monday she needed help.We were going to help with the ramp so he could do treatment.These were treatments my husband made possible.My husband had called work when he found out the guy was denied chemo through our insurance.My husband got in touch with Patient Relations.They got on it and the same day the insurance OK'd his treatment. I think the falls he had the last 2 days just were to much.I'm sure he hurt himself and one fall he laid on the cold wet ground for 20 minutes before their neighbor came home to help him up. His wife and daughter couldn't lift him.
SO Yesterday was a whirlwind day a depressing and hurtful day.Another life lost to this dreaded disease cancer. Husband was told he should go home but he stayed at work.They checked on him a few times to see if he was doing OK.just upsetting that before we could help and get him what he wanted he passed. This was all he wanted.it was his last wish. We're upset we couldn't make it come true.
