A SAD SAD DAY

MIKE AT 4


5 YEARS AGO



LAST YEAR AT HIS BENEFIT MOTORCYCLE RUN


RELAY FOR LIFE 2008



MIKE AND OUR SISTER PATTI


THIS YEARS CHURCH DIRECTORY PICTURE


So my sister called me this afternoon. She was at the ER with my brother again!
He called her and asked if she would come over after church and look at his arm. He thought he had hurt it in his sleep??? I thought it was weird that he wasn't at church this morning. He's ALWAYS there before us, and has seats waiting for us.
So Patti went to look at him and immediatly took him to the hospital. His arm was "contorted" and black and blue. They sent him for an x-ray, and sure enough, the upper bone in his arm was broken! How do you break you arm while you are sleeping???

Mike has to roll himself over and push himself up after all of the radiation to his hips. When he pushed up this morning, the bone snapped!

The doctor came back and told us that even though they had just x-rayed his arm, it was obvious that he had major tumor in his bones in his arm and shoulder! WOW!!
Did NOT expect that!

He has an appointment to see his oncologist tomorrow, as well as an MRI scheduled.
Now I'm scared!

He called Chuck and I over to his house this evening. Patti was all ready there.
He told us that the doctors had all ready told him that even with all of the treatments he has been having, his cancer is spreading rapidly and it may be time to call Hospice in. He had not told us that before now, because he didn't want to worry us!

So I'm taking him for the scans in the morning, and to see the doctor. I need to hear what is really going on, and just how much he really has not told us!
THIS SUCKS!! I'M NOT READY TO LOOSE MY BROTHER!
