I had every intention of writing some new blog posts, but my husband was hospitalized a week ago, and he is bad shape and not expected to live much longer. No doctor has given a time estimate, but Phil understands that any further treatment with chemo or dialysis, should it become necessary, would be futile. He is being kept comfortable with pain medication as the Myeloma has eaten holes in the bones throughout his back, and presumably other places in his body. He will receive some radiation to shrink a large tumor which is causing a lot of pain. Where we go after that is still an unknown; we take the days one at a time and pray fervently for comfort and wisdom.
