I know I've been absent so I'll catch you up now.  Chuck is home and did not get to go to rehab, thank you Obamacare very much. D#1 had to finally get back to work. She has been an angel truly. Chuck is very weak and not able to do much yet but he's trying. Between Fern House and me we keep him fed. He is able to do his own infusion daily. We saw Dr. Wacks today. That man is an angel too. I get in the pool when I get the chance. This shall pass and we will all be well soon. Hang in there. We are. And trust me, I'm not Miss Bee Havin these days. Lol.

Chuck is still in the hospital but finally does seem to be improving. I'm there every day, usually gen to twelve hours. It's taking its toll on me but I'm managing. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Chuck came out of ICU and into a regular room today. He was able to take a couple of steps also. D#1 is still with him Day and night. He told me today she is an angel. I already knew that. Nothing happens in hospitals on weekends so I know she will keep up his therapy which he needs so badly. Thanks so much for all your comments. I love you guys!

This is a hard post to make. Chuck is now in ICU and had a heart attack on Monday night.  Thank goodness D#1 was with him. At 2:00 AM he had trouble breathing and Dr. Wacks was there in ten minutes and between them they got him stable and into ICU and comfortable. She has not left him at all. My routine is exercise in the morning and hospital in the afternoon. He will get better but it's going to be a long uphill struggle for him. We shall overcome !

I'm coming back to the living now. Chuck is still in the hospital and having infection problems and is totally miserable but there is nothing I can do and can't even visit yet. I have to let it go. D#1 will be back here tomorrow night and I am so hopeful that things will change for the better. Hang in there. I am...

I feel like all I do is apologize for not posting but I spend every day at the hospital with Chuck. He is making progress and can walk a bit with a walker now, but still in a lot of pain and scheduled to have another surgery on Tuesday. Since I'm having my last chemo Monday I won't be any help to him next week but I can't postpone it again. We will get through this!  Honest we will!

Again I'm so sorry for being absent so long. Chuck is back in the hospital and I've moved my last chemo out a week to help him. Not sure when he will get out but will need more help then as well. He was doing really great after his surgery but after two weeks started having problems. More surgery. Lots of pain. He still couldn't walk today but was able to stand briefly. Anyway we will get through this. Thanks for understanding !

Sorry I haven't posted but it was a rough week. I'm better now and only have one more treatment left. I will be so glad when this is over but I have to count my blessings to have it available.  I was back in the pool earlier today and it is warm and wonderful.

This isn't a new photo (still had hair!) because I didn't have anyone to take one but I have been back in the pool every day again. It's warm and wonderful and I'm doing my physical therapy in there. My next chemo is Monday so next week I'll be in bed probably but I got this!
