Journal entry by Bette Hauber

Sorry. I'm a little behind. We saw palliative care a few days ago and they prescribed a miracle pill. It's a steroid that is helping his appetite, nausea and energy overall. 

Urologist appt went great. RP had enlarged prostate so they prescribed 2 meds, which should take 3 months to fix it. If that doesnt wk, may try another drug or last resort surgery. Eye dr took forever. We were there 3 hours and they switched us to 4 different rooms to do what they needed to. Was a little concerned about his left eye which has a growth on it and bleeding a little. Going back to see ophthalmologist who specializes on external part of eye In a couple wks. Also had PT yesterday who showed us some more exercises to strengthen his legs and hips. Going to see a realtor on tomorrow who follows Dave Ramseys principles for buying and selling houses. Seemed nice on the phone. Thinking about selling and moving to a smaller single level with small yard. Worked in the yard and patio yesterday. Doing lots more today and this weekend.  At the clinic now, waiting to go in. Lots going on...
