Tony and I only went back 8 years.
Dick Bell and I go back 30 years....used to fly RC Planes with him and his son. His son is now a A340 pilot for ACanada.
Dick has got stomach cancer....3 or 4 tumours wrapped around all of his organs and it has metastasized into his lymph system. Chemo just shut down his kidneys....he will likely die this week of renal failure....
Purple it is for Julie on Thursday...
"YOU can cure cancer but the cure might kill you"
Turns out, she had messed up her shoulder pretty bad. The doc got in there and said holy cow, what did she do? He removed all the bone fragments, and removed the top of the humerus and installed a replacement joint. Over two hours on the table. Yikes. Rehab time!
She's feeling pretty good now on a morphine drip. Tomorrow morning, she goes downstairs again for her new med port. It's a small metal device that is implanted under the skin, with a tube that connects to the Superior Verna Cava next to the heart, so that the chemo can get in quickly and easily.
She wants to stay in until Saturday. She's a nurse, so the docs are putty in her hands.
