Exactly 5 months to the day when we were told of my wife's cancer, we have been told they can no longer treat her. Her abdomen started to swell again, and they did an ultra sound. It showed the cancer has taken over most everywhere. We had just started round five of Chemo on Monday and Tuesday. They did let us do infusion for fluids and anti nausea today. It was so hard to say good bye to the Infusion Staff that we worked with for 5 months, and leave there knowing what is ahead. Hospice is coming in the morning since treatment has stopped, and they want us to sign the contract tomorrow to get things started. We are just not ready to give up, but we have no choice as we are now on morphine based everything. her pain is getting so bad. She has fought this so bravely.
She is only 55 years old, and the end of May we will be married 36 years. I don't want her to go, but I can't stand seeing her in so much pain. Cancer is so cruel.
