Feeling Helpless

Michael is having a difficult day. He's got a sore throat, so he's not been much interested in eating and communicating with his mom and me is a great effort. On top of that, the hospice nurse is determined to get him to "go". So, I just had to give him some sort of liquid concoction for that. He is not in a good mood. In fact, I do think this is the first day he's really felt discouraged and depressed.

Seeing him so weak and down in the dumps is heartbreaking. I want to be able to say or do something to make things better for him, but there doesn't seem to be anything I can do right now.

Cancer sucks...

Being a caregiver is hard. I am sending healing energy to both of you. I hope tomorrow is a better day.

Cancer sucks, and so does having to consume a liquid concoction to "go"! Honestly, I don't blame him for being down one bit!! He probably doesn't want to be cheered up...you know how men are. ;) Tomorrow is a new day and I will pray for a new attitude and no sore throat!

I am so sorry---it must be so difficult not to be able to do anything to help Michael. I pray tomorrow will be a better day.

Yes it does. Today was hard, but it won't last and Michael will regain his strength again. It's the getting through it that's got to be so tough.

My heart breaks for you..my mom had pancreatic cancer that spread to her liver and it was awful to have to watch someone you love go through all of this. I can not tell you how many times I have said to someone "Cancer Sucks"!!
You are both in my prayers..

I just found your blog recently and I have to say you are a amazing lady!!
