Poor guy has got to be tired of this roller coaster ride. Will continue to pray, there's always hope.

His pancreas is completely inflamed again. The infection hasn't spread anymore. It is still present. They can't really figure out why it's inflamed again. He has been on tube feedings and antiboditcs.

Please in your prayers keep my mother in law in there too. Last night had a complete breakdown. We almost thought we were going to have to take her to the hospital. She was out of her head. She has stayed so positive and she has lost that. After much talking and a glass of wine she calmed down and fell asleep.

It is so hard to have to just sit and watch while something like this is happening to your life partner. That feeling of helplessness is what gets you--- been there, know what she's going through. My thoughts are with her, and with you.

It's not only those stricken that need help, but those close to that person. I'm still hoping they get things under control.

Today he is receiving pain meds every 8 minutes through an IV.  He is in terrible pain.  His NG tube is clogged for his feeding tubes so he has to undergo another one of those.  I'm told that is terribly uncomfortable as they run a tube down you nose and into your stomach.

 

His pancreas is very inflamed still.  Last week he wasn't wearing any O2 and staying decent with his o2 levels.  Now he is on 3 liters again and struggling to stay in the 90-92% range. 

 

Thank you for all for the kind words and prayers.  We are all pulling hard for him and trying to do what we can to keep his spirits up as much as we can.

The doctors have basically said without drastic measures he isn't going to make it. His pancreas is done. It will keep getting inflamed and causing more problems. They are discussing completely removing his pancreas which will make him a critical diabetic. VERY hard to manage but doable.

The catch 22 is they will not do any surgery until his pancreas is not inflamed anymore. How do you do that?

Sorry to hear that it doesn't sound like any positives.

We just lost my wife's cousin's wife to cancer. She was beating it and doing well, then her chemo port got infected, then she got pnuemonia, etc. She was too sick to get Chemo even though it was working. By the time she was well enough to take the Chemo, the cancer was too widespread and she finally sucumbed to it last week.

I am sorry to hear that.  We lose so many of our loved ones to cancers.  Most of my family has died from various cancers on both sides. 

 

They are sending him back home Tuesday to work at getting the inflammation down to do the surgeries.  There isn't much reason to be at the hospital.  As the doctor bluntly put it(which I appreciate) either the inflammation goes down and they can do the surgery, or it doesn't and he will finally succumb to the infection.  I am glad there is a finally a doctor involved that has enough to guts to tell everyone what is going on.  The family wasn't please with what he said and  I stepped up and asked them would you rather be told the truth and know what to expect or have him come home and expect everything to be fine?  The shock of hearing it has pushed people over the edge a bit.  I try to be the voice of reason in these situations.  Personally when a family member is sick I want to know what is going on.

 

He is still on the feeding tube, still on IV antibiotics and still VERY weak.

You all know I've just been there--- my heart goes out to you. You are right, it's much better to know what's going on so you can help him, and yourselves, deal with things.
