I been offline much more than usual since posting the last piece. We really appreciate your prayers and concern. My blood tests showed a normal level of eosinophils rather than the ominous looking highly elevated reading fr. Our big worry is my husband's. I am astonished that he was hospitalized for weeks, sent to physical rehab to "learn" how to do things he had done for years while in a severely weakened condition. Only on the day he was to be discharged they came and did medical examination that should have taken place at the beginning -- surprise, surprise -- instead of it being "arthritis", "low blood sugar", "phantom limb pain" it was lung cancer that had been aggressively advancing. Instead of catching it in earlier stages, it had advanced to stage 4 cancer spread into the ribs,
Barry had doctored regularly with that system and was conscientious about following physician directions.. The hospital is now recommending HOSPICE care for him. That we even know his condition now is because I had to fight in the system. When they came in and did x-rays on him bim before his scheduled discharge, they subsequently told him he would have to come back OUT-PATIENT in couple of weeks for a CT Scan. I raised a fuss with the hospital staff telling them they had the equipment, he was in the hospital, transporting a bilateral above the knee amputee was difficult if not impossible given his weakened condition -- further exacerbated by the physical exercises they were having him do in the hospital. When I reminded them that I was the attorney who had once obtained restraining orders against their system, the order was hastily rewritten and he was given the CT scan at the hospital. Thank God! We still would not have known the severity of his daily worsening condition had I not done so The CT scan revealed a lung mass with spread to his rib cage and elsewhere. They ordered an out-patient biopsy, something I also objected to, but it became inpatient as Barry weakened at home to the level that he once again had to be transported to the hospital by ambulance. The CT scan and biopsy were advanced by two days and were done in-patient A thoracentesis was done with removal of 1.25 litres of yellow substance removed from his lungs and it was definitely dangerously advanced stage 4 lung cancer.
I have been completely consumed by this situation the past few weeks. Barry has been a good and supportive husband to me over the now 39 1/2 years I have been educating people on the now not so hidden dangers of the New Age and related movements.
Pray for us!
