My Sister in law's (now) husband was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer about a year ago. They have been together about 15 years. They decided to get married after he was diagnosed and have been doing as good as can be expected with him going through chemo and radiation. Carolyn has been incredibly strong (she is in her 2nd year of recovery for drugs & alcohol) and I'm SO proud of her.

She was not able to come out here for Easter, as Jim (her husband) was not doing well after restarting radiation for more tumors, on his kidney this time and stage 4
The home health nurse saw him Monday and wanted him admitted. He went into ICU with pneumonia.

The Doctors told Carolyn today that they don't expect him to live more than a few days. His entire body is shutting down. Steve has been with them most of the day and is still there tonight.

I'm not asking for prayers for a miracle, but more prayers for a peaceful passing for a too young, troubled life (he's not even 50) and peace and strength for Carolyn. Please keep both of them in your thoughts and prayers

My prayers are coming for Carolyn to find the strength to get thru this time, and for a peaceful passing for Jim. I'm sure Steve will be a strength and comfort for Carolyn as she goes thru this.

laura, again, i am so sorry. if there is any way jim can be cared for with hospice, i would encourage you to do so. they are angels on earth, so caring and compassionate. i was so SO thankful we were able to bring my gary home. i did not want him to have to die in a sterile hospital setting with all of the lights and noise. it was comforting, as well, to me and the rest of gary's family.

the hospice nurses were every bit as good to us and to gary as they would have been to their own family member. they were wonderful in preparing us for the end, they explained things so we could easily understand what was happening and what would soon happen. i cannot sing their praises loud enough.

i still occasionally hear from a couple of our hospice nurses. they will call me just to see how i am doing. they are, without a doubt, awesome people!

you will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
