    Marion was so supportive and helpful to me when I lost my husband to CC years ago.  She was a wonderful woman with a heart of gold.  She will be greatly missed.

    Angela,

    I am so sorry for your loss.  I’m glad she passed peacefully with her son at her side.  You, her family and friends have my deepest sympathy.  As you said, you can take a bit of comfort in knowing that  she is  no longer suffering.  She is now pain free and at peace.

    Hugs,

    Darla

    I can only confirm what the others have said. My husband’s liver enzymes and functions appeared normal until very close to the end, which is why this cancer is so hard to diagnosis.

    I am glad to hear that your husbands attitude has improved, especially towards you. Although I know that my husband had many of those same feelings, he never took it out on me and for that I am grateful. My husband did experience much of what you described. He also lost a lot of weigh very quickly and became weak and tired and although he pretty much couldn’t do much he also couldn’t sleep. I’m sure some of that was from all the anxiety of what he was going through and also the pain and other physical symptoms. He did seem fidgety, but I think that was due to discomfort. He also couldn’t focus or hold a conversation the last few weeks. Like your husband, he could no longer spend even a short time in a grocery store and would just go out and sit in the car and wait there for me. The only thing I do not recall him doing is what you explained about dumping and replacing things and counting and recounting things. He seemed more concerned about me than himself even tho’ I tried to reassure him that I would be OK.

    Definitely talk all of this over with his nurse. Hospice may have some suggestions for you. Try to make the best of the time you still have. None of this is easy, but you can do this. Believe me, you are stronger than you know and will get through this. I did and so can you.

    Take care and let us know how things are going when you can. Thinking of you.

    Hugs,
    Darla

    Bridgette,

    Glad to hear that you were not affected by this disaster. I have both friends and family in that area and some have been OK and others not so much. It is hard to even comprehend what is all going on there. So sad. :(
