Hello dear Boomers! Hope you are all keeping well and safe!

So happy to report that things continue to improve for hubby. He has his voice back after many weeks of not being able to speak much, which was very stressful for both him and for the family. So nice to hear it at full throttle again! His appetite also continues to improve and he has had more calls from the dietition who said he can order more of the nutritional drinks as and when he needs them. He is also not as tired which means he is taking a lot more notice of what's going on and is using his iPad daily to watch some of his favourite programmes. He has also been using his excerciser for longer spells. He has been able to dress by himself as well. It really does my heart and mind good to see all of these small but continual improvements! The only blot on the landscape at the moment is his inability to stand unaided or to walk. He worries about the extra load this is putting on the family. I worry that he won't regain his mobility. If he doesn't, he won't be able to drive his car and this too worries him.

His next appointment is on the 16th for his second Covid jab, then he has another one on the 26th with his consultant. From there, we hope he will have another scan to see where things are. He is still experiencing some pain in his back on a regular basis but the morphine helps with this.

Not much else to report for now.

I want to thank you all again for your continued prayers and support for us both. I don't know how I would have coped without you all.

Much love,

Mary hearts

Thank you everyone. hearts Hubby continues to improve, which does indeed give us more hope. Now, if we could only get his legs moving....most of the mass was in his spine, which obviously affected his ability to stand unaided or to walk, and also caused bladder and bowel problems which thankfully resolved in time. He is back to using his excerciser daily and I have been massaging his legs every morning before he gets up.

We are hoping for good results from the CT scan he will have, at least that he has gone into remission. With his type of cancer, there is a high possibility of it returning, even after three months of remission. If he can get to two years, the chance of it returning is small. What worries us is that he is stage 4, having metastasis in his liver. Also, he is too unwell to have treatment with Methotrexate, which would target any cancer cells in his brain and spinal fluid. We wonder if this might happen further down the line when he has regained some of his strength. All of this, CT scan, Methotrexate, depends on his meeting with his consultant on the 26th of this month. We shall see what he has to say. Hubby, of course, will have a lot of questions for him. I have been champing at the bit since the start of all this; I have been unable to accompany him for obvious reasons. Had I been able to, you can be sure we would know much more than we do! lol Our son has done a relatively good job but didn't want to push for answers when hubby was unable to at the start due to the shock of it all.

Thank you guys, again, for your supportive posts and prayers. I do believe they are working.

Much love to you all,

Mary hearts

Mary, I may not always post, but I do check in to read the latest. I'm not usually at a loss for words, but I do pray the best for you and your husband. Never sure which is harder, watching someone suffer and not being able to do much about it; or having to put off your own health issues. Either and both make life extra challenging. I hope you are both able to find something to do that brings some little bit of pleasure, in some way, every day. wave2

Thanks guys! Your support and prayers lifted me up out of a very dark place and I will be forever grateful. hearts Hubby continues to be well and that is all I could ask for.

butterflybabe, sorry to read about your own struggles and pray for some ease for you soon. Watching hubby's struggle with his cancer was heart-wrenching and we as a family felt so helpless. As far as my own difficulties, my physio was halted over a year ago, when I was almost at the point of receiving my prosthetics. Nothing much I can do about that but it means I will probably have to start over again. Of course, hubby had to come first.
Just the fact that we are together, and can chat to one another and watch programmes together now is a world away from what things were a couple of months ago.
Thank you for your kind words and prayers, they mean a lot.

Much love,

Mary hearts

Hubby saw his consultant last week who was dismayed to hear he hadn't had his end-of-treatment scan yet so he will be chasing that up. He's concerned about the amount of pain hubby still suffers on a daily basis and the fact he's still unable to walk. He's making contact with physio which to my mind should have been done long ago.
Although he's now eating fairly well and taking build-up supplements, he has only gained 1lb since his last treatment, over 6 weeks ago. He has an up-coming phone consult with the dietition so hopefully we can work out a meal plan. He also has an appt with cardiology to have an echocardiogram done.

Nothing much to add. He hates the fact that he has to depend on the kids to get him from A to B. He continues to maintain an interest in all that's going on and is wearing out his ipad watching movies and such lol

Thank you all once again for your love and support!

Much love,

Mary hearts
