    Hospitalization

    Other Care

    When my husband was first diagnosed. He spent 3 months in the Hospital in New Orleans,la. We decided to continue treatment at MD Anderson in Houston, Tx. He stood 3 months in the hospital there. My husband developed complications with this treatment. Such as kidney failure, heart problems, trouble breathing, fluid build up.

    Done!

    Decision Point

    My husband is tired and he is refusing anymore chemo treatment. It really breaks my heart... But I'm respecting his decision and I pray it's the right thing to do.
