Just jumping in to wish all my friends a pleasant holiday season. Hope all who celebrate have your shopping done. This weekend, it will probably be a zoo out there.

My hubby is still in the hospital with A-fib, CHF, and failing kidneys. Next option may be dialysis. He told me a few minutes ago that another team of doctors is supposed to come in to talk about his cancer. So there will be a third opinion of his situation. Needless to say, no cancer treatments have been started yet.

Got to run now, but if you have an extra prayer or good vibe, please send it our way and to JBG.

Luv,

Wolfen

UPDATE......Trying not to put a damper on everyone's holiday.

Renal failure is improving slightly......Blood sugars running a little high(hospital is not using the same type of insulin that he takes......He now has a bladder infection......Major concern now is "unknown growth" on heart valve

Plan is to do endoscope echocardiogram, providing the scope will get past the tumor on tongue, plus a chemical heart stress test.

At some point possibly ask the MDA onc, or some other onc, to consult. Not sure about this one.

So many doctors and nurses coming and going, I'm lost. Lost, frightened, and alone, except for my JBG and my son.

Luv,

Wolfen
