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.
On March 2, 2020 my brother, Paul Lukitsch, went into the St. Mary's Columbia Hospital in Milwaukee with a severe pain in his side. After being admitted it was determined that he had Stage IV Adenocarcinoma Lung Cancer in his right lung. The lung cancer had metastasized to his bones as well. Additionally, he suffers from a very rare blood disorder called DIC - Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation which affects the blood's ability to clot and stop bleeding. The Oncologists say that this disorder is caused by the lung cancer. Currently, Paul has developed a condition in his right foot where there is clotting and he is suffering from severe pain.
We are so grateful to Paul's dear childhood friend, Paul Keppeler, who was with him when he first entered the hospital. He and other sweet friends were with him until I could get to Wisconsin. I have been by his bedside since 3/12 trying to help him remain comfortable in the midst of the National Crisis we are currently facing. It is a scary time to be in a hospital.
Please keep Paul and our family in your thoughts and prayers. We trust that God will help us through this difficult time. I know my brother would love a message of love an encouragement if you would like to send and he would love if you could share special memories. Feel free to share to any of his old BCHS friends or UW-Madison friends. We have had so much fun reminiscing about our years growing up on Pineview Court. Thank goodness for Netflix too! :) Love, Julie
