Monday, Feb 16, 2009

All of our children were all here this weekend again, except our eldest son and he will be here on Tuesday. They all stayed at Stephanie's or Sharol's, because our basement is stripped down to bare floors, with fans running to dry it out.

Judy is continuing to deteriorate. Home Health Care has been able to get her onto a high potency, 72 hour patch for pain and a suppository for nausea. She was having trouble keeping oral medications down long enough for them to dissolve. She is extremely weak and was unable to attend church at all on Sunday. However, she was able to sit in a chair and talk with family members several times during the day. My youngest sister (Mary Eddenfield) from Sacramento and her family stopped by for a short visit yesterday as well.

Judy has her monthly oncologist visit scheduled for tomorrow and I expect them to suggest that we start hospice care. He respiratory therapist was here to help her with her breathing and only scheduled her for three weeks of treatment. When asked why, she stated that when patients start having breathing problems that they only last a few weeks.

Judy also has quite a bit of fluid in her abdomen again, perhaps a gallon or more. It is unclear whether they will try and remove it a second time.

I want you to know that Rick and I say prayers for you all the time. I'm so sad that you are going through some very hard times. I would love to see you again, but I'm sure you aren't up to seeing people at this time. Just know we love you and we loved serving with you at Temple Square. We had a lot of fun with you both. We hope you will be feeling better soon and we will keep you in our prayers. If we can do anything, we are here for you.
