Moffitt Visit

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

So today was results day at Moffitt. Not a good day at all. The tumor is once again growing and Pooh's platelets are only about 44,000. I nearly fell out of the chair when they said Hospice should be called in. No further treatment can be done and we will remain in a watch and see state of returning every 2 months for bloodwork only. Basically, his liver functions are beginning to deteriorate and it is only a matter of how much time it will take. They are saying that we should call in Hospice now for support.

I feel sick.

    emoticon I'm so sorry to hear that. I don't even know what to say to you because it is just so hard to find the right words. I will be thinking about you and your family and hope that you will stay strong. You are an incredible person and if you just need someone to listen or to vent on, you know where to find me. emoticon

    I am so sorry about this bad news that you have received. It really is impossible to be prepared for these moments. I know you will be strong though, even when you feel weak and "sick". I know that "sick" feeling, and it isn't nice, to say the least. Hospice is really a great support and they understand how hard this time is for everyone. Can you take a leave from work or school? Be sure to reach out to your family for support and know that your sparkfriends are praying for you and Pooh.
