After two months of no appetite, nausea, lethargy and weight loss, they decided on a CT Scan to see what's going on. The results couldn't have been much worse, it is everywhere, even on my hernia. And as if the cancer isn't bad enough, there is now an ulcer, a good candidate for rupture. If that happens, not anything they can do.

So, I start hospice Monday but it's not the Comfort Care part of it yet. Met with them this morning and I like them and am glad this is getting turned over to them. At least they will be quicker in response to relieving symptoms. The docs are out of it and it's all in the hospice company's hands. And I trust their hands more.

I wouldn't change anything about the path I chose and I met some very caring and genuine people along this path. I will miss them as I have stopped all treatments and will let this run its course.

I haven't been here much and do not know how much I will be able to be here because the energy level doesn't drain, it drops and all I can do is rest. This is a Groundhog Day kind of existence and I dread the beginning of another day.

BTW, they have confirmed that this cancer is the same one that took my wife, cholangiocarcinoma, a first as far as they know.
Coachadoodles, we all love you and wish we could do something to help. The nature of on line friends and I consider us family is our limitations through distance stops us in our tracks. That doesn't stop our hearts from rushing to you for comfort and care. We have to leave the abundance of our hearts in hospice's hands. If you ever need to get the upper hand, just remind them that you are in fact the Grand Poobah of the PJG. We voted.

Please accept Jesus as your savior so you can be with Smiley again and I'd love to meet y'all one day. Jesus doesn't care when you come to Him as long as you come. No religion, just a very real Savior who really does love you. He couldn't help himself either.

You snuck up on us and touched our hearts in unexpected ways... I'm very wordy so who knows when I'll be done, but I need to wrap up for now. You are in my heart and thoughts for as long as I can feel and think

Coach, I didn’t ‘like’ your post to say I liked your post. This is heartbreaking…. really upsetting. The ******* is taking another wonderful person. I’m hurt, mad, numb and many other things I can’t put into words. The knot in my chest and throat are barely letting me breathe right now, let alone scream in anger. I’ll keep you in my prayers, my friend…

This is a tough one CC for all of us. Just know that so many people care for you. You have touched so many with your wit and wisdom. I agree 100% with Xelda. Just do it.

Just reading this my dear friend. Wishing so badly it wasn’t that way. Tell us what we can do for you.

Good afternoon Pops and Popsadoodles. I found some funnies in trolling the nation that I wanted to share.

If only we could play Washington 16 times a year.
Our defense might still be good, haven't really seen them much yet
Every year, on national TV, we get embarrassed by the Cowboys. Twice.
Even in my nightmares, it wasn’t this freaking bad
I think I’m gonna move to South America and herd Llamas. Somewhere without TV reception or internet connections. Get back to the land, you know?
They are preparing the participation trophies for the Giants players for after the game
I hope the NFL really starts to investigate why they put a crime show on prime time TV
Honestly, just invoke the mercy rule and cancel the game
In the OL’s defense, not everyone likes touching other men who are running at them.
Cowboys O-line moves like elephants, our O-line are hamsters
I'm giving away my new 95 inch flatscreen. Only has 33 points and six sacks on it. Few pixels are out due to errant beer bottles
My plans to buy new Giants gear went out the door like fans at halftime
The Giants aren't blocking they are escorting the Cowboys to Jones.
Cowboys are trying to sack everybody. The popcorn guy better watch his arse.

I’d been worried since hadn’t see you here lately. You’re going to be greatly missed and never forgotten. These forums won’t be the same without you.

Gods speed my friend and know you’re in good hands with Hospice . Peace & Love

Good morning Pops and Friends,

It's a refreshing 40 F this morning with a projected high of about 65 F today and there is lots of sunshine.

We've started winterizing the house, vehicles and properties and in a sumpreme acknowledgement that winter is on its way, I mounted the snowplow on the off road vehicle.

Love this time of the year when the shadows lengthen, the leaves turn golden and the air is crisp.... oh, and football.

Have a good remainder of your week.

I'm back to having interesting dreams. Last week, I decided to "get rid" of stuff I'm not using. I opened a box and it was full of memories that I couldn't bring myself to part with. There were two pictures of me and my ex husband with a sweet card. I had to remind myself why it ended. My first cousin's wife left my cousin to chase after my husband. She caught and cootiefied him beyond redemption. Earlier I had been looking at family pictures of a funeral for my aunt and (the beyoch thinks she's still family) was front and center. Her head literally looked twice as big as everyone else's.

One dream from earlier in the week is starting to fade but had a funny moment. I was in a strange city. Everyone felt hopeless and I was trying to encourage them. One woman finally turned to me and I could see hope in her eyes when in floats the beyoch's head. I turn to grab something like maybe, I don't know, a baseball bat and go Babe Ruth on her. I can only find a fly swatter and chase her everywhere with it. I think my credibility took a hit for that.

Yesterday I had a dream that was heavily atmospheric I'm at the state fair and the noise level is at 10% of normal. I walk up to an attraction no one is interested in. It was about music and claimed to evoke a powerful connection at the end. I picked some songs and was able to choose the last song which would be deemed to have the strongest reaction. I go in and sit in a white chair with an overhead rail to move it. The rooms are all while and I hear many 80s songs. They were good ones too. As I go through, all rooms are white with only corners and ends of walls noticeable. I'm enjoying the music when it comes to a stop. I step off and walk past three white desks and chairs. I step around the corner until I don't see myself any more. Phil Collins You Know What I Mean starts playing. It wasn't the song I'd picked out, but I like it so I listened. The dream ended on the last note. This dream felt like a love letter to myself.

Finally last night's dream was a doozy. I'm struggling to boot my ex fiancé out of the house. He wants to stay only because he has no where else to go. He does nothing but give me grief so when a girlfriend showed up, I throw his stuff at her and tell her to keep him. He's non stop insulting me as he leaves. I feel good about his departure and decide to further unburden myself. I suddenly have a house full of inhabitants. I like them, but am still in the mood to clean house so I start running friends and neighbors out of the house. They are determined to get back in so I start throwing things at them. Some are still determined and I get my hands on a good sized piece of wood to batter them with. It was very much cartoonish violence.

There seems to be a theme here but I'm not dwelling on exes. My subconscious gets busy though. I think it's best if I forsake getting rid of stuff for now.

Just saw this, so sorry to hear this my friend - wish I had the words...

I will always admire and respect you for how you faced this journey.

God speed and I will pray that you will always be in peace.

I'm afraid to talk out loud about my dreams. It's gotta be the handful of meds they got me on. Just the weirdest stuff you could imagine.
