Prayers for your dad Linda. So many sad things in this new year; we are supposed to have a better one.
DH went to oncologist today and no good news. His PSA went up to 20 and the Zitiga doesn't seem to be working. He showed him his chest x-ray and said the light spot is cancer cells eating the bone. What a shock to hear that and of course both of us are feeling bad emotionally. He wants him to finish the Zitiga he now has then wants to put him on another drug called Xtandi which is about the same kind of med. Of course, this drug is very expensive too so will be talking to the social worker again about funding for this. Hope the chronic disease fund will further fund us for this. I'm thankful that they are willing to help us afford meds. The doctor said the country is going broke with the prices of all the meds. He will see the oncologist on Feb. 1st and we will know more then.
Looking outside it looks like a nice sunny day, but very windy and so cold. We are staying in the 50's today, and still NO rain. We sure need some.
No better infact worse. It is only because of the machines and drugs that she is still here. Sunday or Monday morning we plan to have the hospital take her off life surport. She had always said she did not want to be kept this way.

Thank you Pegi.. Susan.
Dorothy is beauty, and that butterfly flying away from this room.. is so apropo at this time. We all don't want that special butterfly to leave, don't we?
I hate that we live so far apart from each other. This is too sudden. I will accept that Lord thinks Dorothy's work on earth is done, if that's it. Yes, she musn't suffer.
Sad as I am. I find comfort in knowing we will all be reunited in that great place call Heaven.
Am so glad that we do tell each other often that we love one another...
Dorothy, we love you.
Dear Lord, we ask that our dear sister Dorothy find in Your favor and that her journey be swift and easy. She is such a kind and giving spirit who only tried to do good while on this earth. We thank You for having the priviledge of knowing her and calling her friend. And please, we ask in Thy Son's name, that You watch over her family and grant them peace and strength and understanding. Amen.....
I'm so very glad I have this place where I can be me and I am accepted with all my faults.
Thank you Jaye, for honoring Dorothy in the header. She was such a sweet person and will be missed from this group. Sending gentle hugs to her family and a special one to Dorothy, even though she may not feel it...
Feeling the same as everyone else about Dorothy. Banner, indeed is lovely and a wonderful statement.
Pegi, I so wish I were closer to help during this time. Although I can not feel exactly what you are feeling (no one can do that) I do know and so understand what you are dealing with. Hold each other close, be grateful Darwin still has his sense of humor (Ross never lost his) and know I am praying for much better results with the Feb. 1 visit.
