    Eyesight

    Loss

    He lost eyesight in April of 2012 and it has been a struggle for both of us! That's why I'm looking for a caregiver support group here locally in town.

    Hospice

    Other Care

    We are under Hospice now and it's not bad although they only come here once a week and check the usual stuff and they're gone. I'm the one doing everything literally. He's not only sick he's blind too.

    Money

    Oh No

    Money is very tight right now and we have no vehicle and I'm on the internet till wee hours of the morning looking for someone or anyone who would donate vehicle. I'm going through VA and they are slow when you're fighting for Agent Orange too. Right now we're non-service connected so the pay is awful and if I make anything they deduct that and they would also charge for care. But I would love to have a vehicle to get him out of the house and let him enjoy the last days of his life. l have gone through more dead end streets looking for help more than China has rice.......any suggestions are welcome. It's not like we need anything new just 3 to 4 grand. It would be a life changer in sooooo many ways.

    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    Don't have the results from MRI just the latest catscan and they've found some tumors under the skin in the lymph nodes and we're scared to death. So relationship problems begin due to being on each other's nerves everyday all day long. Tension, Stress, Anger, etc.
