Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
If you are here you already know Denny is very ill. Doctor says we are down to our final weeks. We are 3 weeks into Hospice now.
For those that don't know, Denny has stage IV adenocarcinoma, unknown origin. His lungs are really involved and causing most of his symptoms.
I will try to keep you updated here. If there isn't an entry on any given day you can assume there is no change from the day before.
Denny isn't eating much and as a result is down to 150#. He hasn't left the house for 3 weeks. His pain is under control.
This week he had 2 dizzy spells on Wednesday. This morning he had his first fall. Only his pride was hurt. He is using the walker now. My thanks to Tami & Steve. Steve got here in under 5 minutes! I'm thinking he is dehydrated and I'm really pushing fluids. The nurse will be here Tuesday for her regular visit.
