Good morning!
 
Still a little tired after the long trip yesterday, nothing that more sleep won't fix.
The bottom line on George is he has a rare cancer of the parotid gland and the salivary glands that was also in the neck lymph nodes.  The radiation and chemo is also very rare in the methods they (Hopkins) will use.  Too much one way or the other can have devastating effects.  Unfortunately, there is no way I can take him to Hopkins 5 days a week for 6 weeks.  Even if I can find a place to stay/rent, someone must be with him the entire time.  I am in the prayer mode about this as "I" can't see how to make this work.
I appreciate so much everyone's kind words and the words of encouragement.
It is so humid here that it feels 20 degrees hotter than it really is.  I don't mind the heat, but the humidity is terrible.
Blessings.

I am sure you have already tried this, but just in case, have you checked with Mayo regarding facilities that may be available for out-of-town long term cases?  I only know about this because of the Ronald McDonald House that my daughter stayed in while her baby was in the neonatal unit which was about 60 miles from our house.  I don't know if such a place exists for other situations other than families with children, but I thought I would throw it out there.

Prayers for you and George.  Take care of yourself.  The sheep would be lost without their shepherd.   an angelic monkey

FYI - The VA hospital in Dallas also has out-of-town accomodations on the grounds, they are very helpful for the families.

Just got back from Baltimore.  Long story and too tired to write it now.
Many thanks to all for your prayers and yes JSM you may put be on the prayer list -- I need all the help I can get as I am overwhelmed.  Yet  I know God is faithful.
Prayers Sister, been thinking of you, you are on the prayer list and if you need anything, I will be glad to give you any help you need.  an angelic monkey

Good morning.
 
Headed to Mom's this morning to meet with my siblings.  Thank goodness Mother had given to each of us the things she wanted us to have several years ago.  This will make it much easier, I guess.
Blessings to all.
  an angelic monkey It is much easier Sister, I am praying that all went well. I feel bad I haven't been here for you. You have been in my prayers and my prayer list.  an angelic monkey

I believe I'm living in a weather warp. The tiger lilies that bloom in spring are in bloom again, the pear tree is bearing fruit again and the poplars that turn yellow and start dropping leaves in mid August are bright green still.  Anyone else in this warp with me ?

Sister hang in there...prayers for you and yours.  an angelic monkey
  YES!!!! Warp here in Texas, we have ONE Bradford pear tree at the hospital that they don't take care of and the dang thing is blooming. All others are dying from lack of water, but this one has been blooming for two weeks.

Good morning.
 
Preached yesterday for the first time in several weeks.  It felt good to be back doing what I am ordained to do, but it was highly emotional for me and the congregation, yet filled with much love.
Taking George to the oncologist tomorrow in Baltimore, think we will be making the big decision then.  Because of his limited cognitive skills, he really doesn't understand the side effects of radiation and chemo -- he only understands how he feels today.  I just don't think he is strong enough to endure and I am a believer in quality of life.
Things were still very emotional at Mom's on Saturday as dismantling her home is very painful.  Connie cried all the way home.  I know God is faithful with His mercy and I pray for it each day.
Hate to come on here with depressing news all the time, but you folks provide me a safe place to fall and I deeply appreciate it.
Blessings.
  an angelic monkey My dear Sister, I feel so badly for you. I feel badly work has kept me away from knowing how much you are hurting. Please forgive me. I pray for George, has to be really hard not understanding what is going on with his health and my heart breaks for Connie. If I could I would fly up there and help you out. If CC wasn't going out of town, I would get a ticket and come up there to give you a hand. God bless you and all.  an angelic monkey

Prayers and thoughts for you, Sister, today as you make the journey to Baltimore.  I am sure you will make the best decision for George.  Some of the best advice given to me and my sibs, when having to make difficult decisions for my Mom, is to make an informed decision and implement it.  Don't look back and don't second guess yourself.  It is the right decision at the time.  That has helped us with the challenges we face with my Mom.

You are our angel, Sister, here in monkey land. You teach us compassion and forgiveness each time you post.  Your words are most welcome be me, each and every time you post.  Iam glad you can share your burdens with us - sharing of burdens is something I have not truly learned to do, and I know it is healthy to do that.  It is harder for some of us than others.

I always look forward to your posts...

Cad
Caddy you said it better than I could. I pray for you and your family as well as Sister, George and Connie

The bottom line on George is he has a rare cancer of the parotid gland and the salivary glands that was also in the neck lymph nodes.  The radiation and chemo is also very rare in the methods they (Hopkins) will use.  Too much one way or the other can have devastating effects.  Unfortunately, there is no way I can take him to Hopkins 5 days a week for 6 weeks.  Even if I can find a place to stay/rent, someone must be with him the entire time.  I am in the prayer mode about this as "I" can't see how to make this work.
I appreciate so much everyone's kind words and the words of encouragement.
It is so humid here that it feels 20 degrees hotter than it really is.  I don't mind the heat, but the humidity is terrible.
Blessings.

I am sure you have already tried this, but just in case, have you checked with Mayo regarding facilities that may be available for out-of-town long term cases?  I only know about this because of the Ronald McDonald House that my daughter stayed in while her baby was in the neonatal unit which was about 60 miles from our house.  I don't know if such a place exists for other situations other than families with children, but I thought I would throw it out there.

Prayers for you and George.  Take care of yourself.  The sheep would be lost without their shepherd.   an angelic monkey
God Bless You FLUTTER!!! Never thought that they may have a place for adults, like they do for family of children.

FYI - The VA hospital in Dallas also has out-of-town accomodations on the grounds, they are very helpful for the families.
Didn't know that, wish my step dad was still in Dallas and not having to go to Temple.  an angelic monkey

Good morning.
 
Preached yesterday for the first time in several weeks.  It felt good to be back doing what I am ordained to do, but it was highly emotional for me and the congregation, yet filled with much love.
Taking George to the oncologist tomorrow in Baltimore, think we will be making the big decision then.  Because of his limited cognitive skills, he really doesn't understand the side effects of radiation and chemo -- he only understands how he feels today.  I just don't think he is strong enough to endure and I am a believer in quality of life.
Things were still very emotional at Mom's on Saturday as dismantling her home is very painful.  Connie cried all the way home.  I know God is faithful with His mercy and I pray for it each day.
Hate to come on here with depressing news all the time, but you folks provide me a safe place to fall and I deeply appreciate it.
Blessings.
Prayers and thoughts for you, Sister, today as you make the journey to Baltimore.  I am sure you will make the best decision for George.  Some of the best advice given to me and my sibs, when having to make difficult decisions for my Mom, is to make an informed decision and implement it.  Don't look back and don't second guess yourself.  It is the right decision at the time.  That has helped us with the challenges we face with my Mom.

You are our angel, Sister, here in monkey land. You teach us compassion and forgiveness each time you post.  Your words are most welcome be me, each and every time you post.  Iam glad you can share your burdens with us - sharing of burdens is something I have not truly learned to do, and I know it is healthy to do that.  It is harder for some of us than others.

I always look forward to your posts...

Cad
Caddy you said it better than I could. I pray for you and your family as well as Sister, George and Connie

I agree with JSM. Caddy you said it so well.  Sister all I can offer is Prayers for you and George.  an angelic monkey

Praying for all monkeys in need. My heart breaks when I read of your loss.

Last Thursday there was a bird hanging by his paw struggling to get out of the tree at work. I jumped in the truck underneath the tree (didn't know who's truck it was), but couldn't get the bird.  Came back later and he must have died from exhaustion.

TODAY, same thing, different tree.... No truck to stand on, my BFF and I saw it and thought it would free itself, came back later and it was still hanging upside down like a bat. We saw a man on a rolling scaffold putting up a sign, told my BFF that I am going to get the man to get the bird down. The nice man drove the scaffold to the tree (his friend said he "couldn't get it"), Scaffold man drove it to the parking lot, manovered it to the bird and got him out of the tree. His friend said the bird would die, but he flew away.

I cannot stand to see an animal in distress and dying, the bird and the other one could have had West Nile, I don't know, but I am happy I tried to save one of God's creatures.

God bless and prayers for you all. Time for dinner, CC is eating and I am on the computer.

Love hugs and prayers.. JSM, Patton, CC and Ruby.

God bless the Good Samaritan who rescued the bird.  In our busy lives today, we shouldn't overlook those who are in need or less fortunate than we are.  It is easy to do, but there shouldn't ever be an excuse for doing it.
