    Missing Greg's Posts and Praying He's Okay

    Donna, would you give us an update if Greg isn't up to it? Or Jane, it seems you keep in touch with him outside of these posts - have you heard how he's doing? Or ... anyone else who knows ... update, please?

    Prayers that they are finding a solution to his feeding tube issues and any other problems he's been encountering.

      I’m also anxious to hear something from Greg or Donna. Hopefully they are all just resting at home after a long week.

      I, too, have been thinking that I haven't seen anything from Greg recently. I'm looking forward to hearing how he's doing whenever he's up to it.

      He has been on my mind a lot lately. I hope that means he is doing better.

      He's been on my mind too. I haven't heard from him or Donna. From a late reply to one of the posts here, it seemed like he's been hospitalized, probably related to the stomach tube issue.

      Sorry thought maybe he posted .Tuesday he had Dr.appt.they could'nt get him into gi clinic. So his dr. Said the quickest way to get it addressed was to admit him into the hospital .So that is where we are. Seems last week when we went to ER they put a #18 tube in when originally it was a#20! So yesterday they put the right size 20 tube back in.So just been pump feeding him and now have to go to the way he does it at home.With a syringe to make sure it's not going to leak.So leaking a small.amount. So hopefully we get to go home soon.Been here 5 days this go round.

      I am glad to hear he is doing relatively "okay." I will continue to say prayers for both of you. I can imagine this has taken quite the toll on you both. Keep us posted when you can. Obviously taking care of Greg comes first, but any news you can share eases our worried minds.

      I am also glad to have this update, because like all of you, I have been thinking of Greg! I feel so bad he has to deal with this. These unexpected complications can sure zap our energy, and we need all the energy we can get when we are fighting as hard as Greg. It was kind of Donna to update us.

      Do they know why he has so much fluid on his lungs? That's worrisome (says she with lung cancer and who assumes anything to do with lungs might mean something awful).

      You're an incredible wife and caregiver, Donna! I know he appreciates you (because he tells us so all of the time) ... and he should!!!! Being the caregiver is harder sometimes than being the patient. I think that is especially true for cancer patients. Thank you so much for keeping us updated. You both remain in our thoughts and prayers, for sure!!!

      I just hope when you leave this hospital, you'll both have a bit of time that is completely problem-free! Has the swelling and all of that ceased? The big blister-looking things and the swelling face? I hope so!!!!

      Thank you so much for the update, Donna. Greg sure does like to get all the attention. I hope the new feeding tube won't leak. You both sure have been through a lot. You certainly have been through ringer this time. I will continue to remember you in my prayers. Your title of Sweetie is well deserved. Take care.

      Thank you for the update Donna. I'm sorry to hear there are yet more issues to overcome but the two of you do it so well. I hope all goes well and you make it home this coming week and that you get to stay there for a good while. I'm sure home will seem a castle after all the nights at the hospital. If Greg is Superman then you are Superwoman. If you ever need a place to vent, cry or have people really understand what you're going through..., I belong to a Facebook group called Well Spouse Association-Spousal Caregivers. It's for spousal or partnered caregivers. It's a wonderful warm group just for you.

      Hello everyone I'm Deana, Greg's sister in law and Donna's sister. Our Superman is still fighting the fight ❤ He is still at Vanderbilt Hospital. I'm here with him tonight. Our brother stayed with him last night to give Sissy a much needed break again. Our goal is to get him back home and in his recliner soon. We thank you all so much for the prayers and well wishes. Please keep them coming. Goodnight and God bless you all!
