Sure hope you guys don't run out of prayers and good vibes. I seem to always be asking for them.
We met with Surgical Onc today. Tomorrow, hubby will be have fourteen teeth removed, chemo port put in, and feeding tube. He will be kept in the hospital, at least overnight.
Home Health will come out to help with port and feeding tube until I get it figured out. Those are not yet my field of expertise.
Physical condition permittting, first chemo will be on Thurs. followed by catheter removal on Friday.
Just very frightened for him in his physical and mental state.
All your love, prayers, and well wishes have worked again! Hubby came through the surgery okay. Actually had 2 Anesthesiologists(maybe that is normal). Whoopee, we saved a tooth. LOL Have to have something to laugh about. Doc only cut out 13 instead of 14. His poor face is so swollen and gums full of stitches. Haven't got a look at the port or G-tube yet. He slept all day(a good thing). He managed to get the words out "Get something for pain" with his mouth stuffed with cotton and took two sips of water after the cotton was removed. Otherwise he's been out of it. So I came home at 9:00. Going back in the morning as soon as I pick up a rental car. I need a vehicle he doesn't have to climb up into. Doc was going to arrange transport home, but I'll need the car for the numerous upcoming events. Heck, it's only money.
I'll check back in when I know where this is going.
