Some help needed please

Hold this wonderful man in your thoughts if you can...he is very very sick and I have grown rather fond of him over the past 35 (hell...that long?) years...

















and the wonderfully handsome doggie Thorn is never wrong...because he usually favours the girls...so has made Don and Honorary girl


and that is an honour coming from Thorn the wonder dog.

He'll be there for that wedding because of all the love that's holding him together.

Consider all of us lighting candles in cyberspace and imagine the glow.

Thank you all so much. I haven't figured out how to post from the hospital kiosk...

Things are really terrible here...just a long series of neglect in Spinal Unit which left unattended and after many warnings by me led to Don having a Respitary Arrest and into Intensive care. He was on a Ventillator and many tubes ...too much to relate, and to sad to say. They took him off this when it appeared to be that his own breathing was taking over...but the next day he almost had the same happen...so he is heavily sedated almost to the point of unconsciousness...I knwo he hears stuff, because when I speak to him he moves his eyelids and seems sometimes to look in my area...

They have drained about 4,000 mls (4 litres) off both lungs and seem at a loss to fihgure out why the fluid is still building up.

One suspicion is that it is a form of Cancer called Lymphoma...

He is very frail, and very sick and I so appreciate all your wishes. In a wierd sort of way through this blog you lot have become to feel like friends...andsupport and you are.

It is very sad to sit beside the man you have loved in this life for 35 years and to know every bit of his face, his voice, his heart, but to know there is a fair chance he may not be going home with me in this life.

I am being practical here...we have always known what a disaster any lung problem would be for him.

I am being practical because our girls areso heartbroken, but I am also hoping for and expecting a small or huge miraclYou people and your wishes arepart of the miracle.

cs said...

MC, let our prayers and wishes hold all of you up. Enjoy each precious moment you can. We are here but a short short time....
love to you friend, much love and prayers....cs

Sending you & Don a hug from me.
Stay strong.

XOXO
