Things seemed to be happening all at once. my Tom has filled up with fluid again. he was tapped 3 weeks ago. The meagace which we had hoped would help him gain weight, caused a horrible rash. We had to rush to the hospital the other night for pain control due to a kidney stone. The past 2 days there has been lots of bright red blood in his bm's--although he did just get a hemrhoid 3 days ago, one kept help but worry. He is so depressed and scared. He is not afraid of dying but of all the tests they are going to want to do. he is so afraid of "tubes". Tubes, except for IV's, petrify him beyond explanation. We go to the dr. today. I hate this disease. We are so powerless. ann (briefly, Tom was dx'd 11/2/98 with inop pc. Chose no treatment. Everything goood until now.)
