well- my love Peter is still fighting the fight...he continues to get paracentesis for the ascites and blood for his low hemoglobin..(no more chemo) he has lost sooooo much weight- today after looking in the mirror he said by "looking at himself he should be dead".. I told him he was beautiful- and his looks are a mark of his strength and courage...he is still battling the blood clot and I know his liver is very stressed (he has yellow eyes and jaundiced skin)..but you know what?- his spirit keeps him positive and hoping he can stay "stable"- and not get any worse..maybe before I loose him there will be a medication breakthrough...??? doesn't hurt to hope right?..since without hope..life could be very bleak..

    My heart goes out to both of you. It has taken strength and courage to get to where you are. Yes, without hope, life would be very bleak......

    Thanks for your update. You are both in my thoughts and prayers tonight.

    Hope and faith are two things that have helped me since my father was diagnosed almost two years ago. Hang in there.
