I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your husband, and thank you for taking the time and pain to share your experience with me. I'm copying your post and will share it with her husband if I get the slightest hint that she is scheduled for another treatment. I truly do believe that the chemo tipped the scale. I don't expect her to make it past the weekend, if that. I talked to her on the phone, and she told me that she can't talk. She couldn't breathe--shortness of breath; it was worse than yesterday. All she does is sleep, and I understand that part of it is the pain patch and medications. I feel like if we're not allowed to disturb her because she needs to rest, she'll just sleep and die without our getting to see her at all. Her husband is trying to protect her, so that she can rest and get her strength back. What he doesn't get is that that's NOT going to happen. Did your hubby have blood clots and difficulty breathing also? Did his kidneys fail or what finally happened. I know that no two people are the same, but these sound very close. Were they able to do anything about the fluid? I've added my e-mail if you want to write your reply directly.
