    Decision Point (continue care or stop and work toward giving him comfort): This is so difficult to face more so then when we heard he had cancer

    Loss (There is so much gone now): I have become his caregiver... He sleeps 22 hours a day... His side effects keep him from doing anything. I am on anti depressants to cope with watching the love of my life slip and realize that short of a miracle he is dying before my very eyes.

    Side Effects (Too many to just choose one): Chemo brain, low blood counts, exhaustion, shaking in his sleep, horrible back pain

    Radiation (Internal radiation): Caused great exhaustion and when he received the 35 to his lungs the burns went from inside to blisters on his back. May I suggest using Aloe straight from the plant, that is what gave him the most relief

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy and radiation combined): my husband had 6 rounds of chemo Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday with Thursday being a Neulasta shot, at the same time he was getting radiation he received 35 radiation treatments to the lung, 10 to the brain for prevention. He then went into remission for only 2 months it spread now to pancreas he went through 3 rounds of chemo and is now undergoing 15 rounds of radiation to try and shrink the tumors in the pancreas
