    It is with great sorrow that I am writing this post. My husband, John E. Puffenberger, lost his 4-year battle with ICC on July 8. He had fought a good fight but the chemoembolization he had on April 17, 2012 led to his death. He never recovered from it and lost his appetite and 50 plus pounds and was too weak and tired to continue his fight. We had a bad experience with Hospice the day he died, and I don’t think I will ever get over the way he had to leave us. It was anything but peaceful. His oncologist called this morning and I relayed the info to him and he said I am the second person in the last six months that has had a similar experience. He did say that John was an amazing man that overcame the odds and it was an honor and a privilege to be his doctor. I lost my husband but I also lost my best friend; we had been together for over 38 years. I will love him forever and always keep him in my heart. To those of you still fighting, keep on fighting until the end, and maybe one day this terrible disease will be beaten. Rest well my love until we meet again, PeggyP
