Addicted to Junk
Dang, I wish there was something I could do. Or say. Still praying for you both. Hang in there Justin, the Good Lord will make things right in the end. Put your lives in His hands.
So true, as many of us have doneYou and me both, my friend. One of the worst helpless feelings.
And yes, knowing He's there for me is how I get through every day.
Thank you, I appreciate it.I haven't been on here for a few months, and when I saw this thread, it was the first I'm responding to. I'll certainly say some prayers for your wife, as well as some for you. Be strong, be clear-headed, and though it sucks to even think about it, make sure you and your wife go over everything you need to for your family, your finances, any preparations necessary. Because if they're undone, they are so much tougher to deal with when you're overcome with emotions.
Hey Justin (good name!)Thoughts and prayers my friend. I've been working at cancer centers for the last 15 years (clinical trials).
If I could add one thing it would be to ensure she sees a palliative care specialist. Many patients wait until it's to late to really benefit as they think by going to see them, they are throwing in the towel and admitting defeat.
It's not just for hospice though. They can really kick the doors wide open on pain/symptom management and can help you come to a decision on what she wants the next 8 months (or maybe more) to look like.
If she recovers well from that billiary surgery and feels good, go ahead and buy those tickets to Italy.
I also would encourage another opinion at a large academic center (I know you have at least been to one) or even give a call to the NCI Clinical Center in Bethesda, MD to see if they would review her case. They are on the cutting edge and if accepted into their program for a trial, treatment is free.
