and I received devastating news that shocked and numbed our world. Dave’s
cancer treatments are no longer working, the cancer spots have grown in size
and a few new spots have appeared on his bones. There is only one more
treatment option, which can cause brain bleeds, internal bleeding, colon rupture
and stomach rupture. Dave has decided not to pursue this last treatment.
Care this week. Not an easy thing to do but we both got through it. This husband
of mine whom I love very much, has fought like a trooper for over a year now and actually 18 months since he had a cancerous kidney removed only to find out 6 months later that the cancer had metastasized to his bones. I am so proud of him,
as nothing his oncologist tried by treatment protocol seemed to want to cooperate with
his body but he always persevered. Cancer treatments have come a long way, but not when it comes to
renal cancer, especially metastasized to the bones.
cards, added Dave to your church’s prayer list and so on. The outpouring of support
was immense. We felt the love from all over the world. I know miracles are
still possible and if our Lord grants him one, we will be forever grateful. Two mornings ago Dave actually got out of bed and told me, “I’m going to prove Dr. Cruz wrong, I’m going to live much longer then what he said I would.”
We are both struggling with this news, we are devastated and we both have no appetite and zero ambition. The sun and a little warmer weather is starting to make an appearance here in Maine so hopefully we will get to enjoy the outdoors soon.
