Things are not looking good. They cancelled the biopsy that was supposed to tell us if he can have immunotherapy because he is in such poor condition. He is still in the hospital with an NG tube. No surgical options because the cancer has spread. They are stopping his chemo for the time being.

My kids came to the hospital. They explained that he might do better for a time, but options are limited at this point.

Dd and her fiancť are doing the necessary work to get a marriage license, in case we need to do a shotgun wedding. My ds has his “ordination” papers so he can perform the ceremony. It doesn’t look as if dh will be well enough (or maybe even alive) for August 18...

I need to find someone who can sub for me for field ecology if I need...

We will be discussing next steps tomorrow with palliative care.

Tomorrow is my 65th birthday.

That’s very sad news, Lisa. I can’t imagine how you are feeling. I’m very sorry and hope there is something that can be done to make your DH comfortable and give you all more time together. God bless you both.

Happy Birthday Lisa. I'm so sorry you are spending it in the hospital with your husband, but I am glad that you have the support of your family. I pray for the doctors to make good decisions and help your husband to have some relief from pain. I pray for you to be strong and appreciate the little things that you have shared with your husband for all the past years.

May you be able to make more happy memories in the days ahead.

Continuing to lift you up, dear lady.

Lisa, this is indeed deeply sad news. Knowing the limited measures that can help your husband must be difficult to process when you want to do anything possible to help him. Your children seem so loving and concerned about both you and your DH as they are making arrangements for the possibility of a wedding. Praying that your DH is comfortable and those you love are close to you both.

Cancer sucks. I wish you strength and peace and your husband to be free of pain as he continues on his journey. Certainly not a happy birthday coming up for you, but I hope you can find some joy in your family's presence and your daughter's impending wedding. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your DH.
