Yesterday my husband entered inpatient hospice with a few days to a couple of weeks to live. He started out with oropharyngeal cancer in July 2012 and in November 2012 was diagnosed with plasma cell leukemia. We got it in remission in January, but unfortunately it came back on March 21. It has spread to his brain, spinal fluid, vertebrae and legs. The pain was so excruciating, but thankfully hospice knows how to ease suffering. I am trying my best to encourage him to move on and love him every second I can, but I am overwhelmed with grief already. I don't want to lose him.
