First received Wednesday, December 19, 2018
For Laura S. in Parker, Colorado who has severe congestion and laryngitis...[December 21] Laura was hospitalized today with pneumonia and sepsis...[December 23] Laura's voice is returning and the edema has been reduced; the sepsis infection still remains...[January 23]"I was in the hospital from December 22 to 26. I have been at home in bed since then resting and convalescing. The edema is still severe even with taking a daily prescribed diuretic. The doctor who discharged me said I might have at least a two-month recovery from the pneumonia. I am currently on oxygen as it can drop suddenly with activity. The coughing and the chest pain have subsided. Now I need to recover strength, stamina and have my legs drain the swelling. The hospital prescribed a home health service for therapy."...[March 19] "I am still confined to my bed most of the time. The edema has gone down dramatically. My voice has come back. I am regaining strength. I can get out of bed without having to support myself with the walker. I can get back into bed on my own which saves my husband, Gerry, lots of effort. The home health agencies have been very helpful. I now have a home-visiting doctor who will continue until I am able to drive myself again. An at-home echocardiagram is scheduled. The doctor is concerned that the fluid retention may be a part of congestive heart failure. They are also going to test my sleeping oxygen to see if I need to continue on it. I am planning on getting to other rooms in the house in the next few days -- new freedom." ...[April 18] "I have gotten out of the bedroom several days in a row. The doctor wants me to stay on oxygen at night. I no longer need the oxygen during the day. I have lost approximately sixty pounds of water weight from the edema, with more water weight to come off. I am feeling much stronger and am moving much more easily. An occupational therapist and a physical therapist are now visiting our home to help me regain muscle strength. I am able to bead again for hours at a stretch and work at my computer. So far no echo cardiogram, so no information on what caused the gross edema. My blood pressure is good and my heart rate is dropping closer to my normal range, although I still have a-fib episodes." ... [April 25] "An echocardiogram test was administered last week. The results were normal for a person of my age. My nurse has increased the dosage of diuretics since my kidneys seem to be fine. The nurse thinks I may still have another ten pounds of edema/water weight to lose. She is also cutting my heart medication in half. I am off daytime oxygen and may soon be off nighttime oxygen. I am feeling stronger everyday. I hope to get outside tomorrow and out of the house for a class on Saturday." ...[May 9] "I got to the point where I was well enough to leave the house for a day-long class and a second emergency visit to the dentist. Yesteday evening, I wrenched my left knee and although I can put weight on it, I am in pain walking. The nurse has prescribed pain medication and ice."
Update Friday, May 17, 2019
"My left leg is healing, though still sore, and walking, sitting and standing have become easier. My heart rate has dropped to very low levels so the nurse has recommended that I not take heart medication for now. Since I began taking diuretics for the edema at the end of February, I have lost eighty pounds (at least fifty pounds had been added water weight.) I have had an ultrasound on my right leg and am waiting for the nurse or doctor to determine the results. Today, I did eight minutes on a floor bike. I am making lots of progress."

First received Thursday, July 5, 2018

First received Friday, November 10, 2017
For Elisabeth D. G. in Gelnhausen, Germany who has a malignant tumor in her bowel which will be treated with chemotherapy and radiation, and for her husband with Parkinson's disease...[November 20] "I have a lot of pain around my lower back, especially at night, and I have a cold with severe coughing. Necessary investigations are taking a lot of time and I hope the therapies will come soon enough to be effective. My emotional and mental planes are more stable than at the time of the diagnosis, and, sometimes there is a lot of fear."...[November 29] "The cold with coughing vanished quickly and was not followed by the usual sinusitis. The occasional extreme pain in the lower back is probably due to the tumor squeezing a nerve. Tomorrow I will enter the hospital for a two-day investigation. I have a lot to organize around my husband, house and health. Mostly I am calm, trusting and able to avoid fear and dark thoughts." ... [December 10] "My therapy starts tomorrow with one week in the hospital for chemotherapy and radiation, followed by four weeks of radiation and then another week in the hospital for more chemotherapy and radiation. I am grateful, that the tumor had not spread yet. The pain in my back is better. My children help a lot, but I have to find good long term solutions concerning my husband Michael's care. I feel that I need much more time for caring for myself. There is a lot of sadness around this theme...The new situation is difficult for Michael, he is very weak, tired and in the evening often disoriented and sometimes confused."...[January 6] “After 4 weeks of treatments I have side effects like nausea, stomach cramps, painful feelings in my hands, feet and jaw and sometimes irritation in my heartbeat and circulation. It is sometimes very unpleasant, but not dramatic. Next week there will be a new round of chemotherapy and radiation in the hospital. Finding new ways and solutions for Michael's care is a long and challenging process. It seems that a lot of old patterns - resistance, fear and attachments - must be transformed, and more helpful arrangements have to be found. I have a lot of inside and outside work to do. But I am grateful that it is possible to be so active, even though the treatments are really straining. Through all the challenges and obstacles, I simultaneously feel a great power and the certainty that I am supported and uplifted in a very profound way.”... [January 18] "My blood profile is poor. I have to go to the hospital again and perhaps be isolated because of the danger of infections and pneumonia. Treatments to the blood cells have possibly had strong side effects. Also we must find new solutions around Michael's care."...[February 4] "The blood cells are regenerating, my skin is healing relatively quickly from burns from the radiation, and the nausea is much better. While I was in the hospital, Michael had to go to a care facility. He can stay there for another week, and after that I have to make decisions around his care."... [March 8] "Very good news. The tumor has shrunk more than the doctor had expected, and in three weeks I hope to go to a rehabilitation facility for one month. I still have some side effects from the radiation. Michael now has an infection in his foot and is showing more confusion."...[March 27] "My blood values are still poor and I have a severe cold and a painful nerve in my lower back and my leg. Tomorrow I will travel to the Rehabilitation Center. Michael will stay in the facility care for one month. After this month we must experiment with new solutions."...[April 7] "I am in the rehabilitation center now and my cold has vanished. I am very worried about Michael, who has a bladder infection, fever and is very confused and apathetic."...[May 1] "After ten days in a hospital, Michael is in a geriatric rehabilitation facility. He is in very poor condition. He has to be fed, is not able to walk or lift his head. The doctors say he cannot be cared for at home anymore. I hope to find a better facility close to his family. In spite of all states of emergency, my tumor apparently vanished totally. I still have lymphatic edema in my ankles and poor blood values."... [June 3] "Michael has improved as he is able to eat by himself, can lift his head and is more aware. Sometimes he is angry and depressed about his situation. My lymphatic edemas are much better, but my blood production is still poor and sometimes I have a lot of pain in my muscles as a side-effect of radiation. I have had to learn to move Michael in a heavy wheelchair. He now lives in a nursing home and I am in a process of grieving and learning to accept the situation." [November 28] Michael fell and broke his femur. He is in pain and has stiffness due to Parkinson's disease. Elisabeth has stress fractures in her sacrum and thigh, and some food intolerance which may all be the result of chemotherapy...[February 5] Michael is sitting up in a wheelchair again after seven weeks in bed, although even a short time out of bed is very exhausting. His broken thigh and decubitus ulcer have healed. Elisabeth is having problems with bones and joints, but the x-rays show no metastases. She has had an inflamed sciatic nerve for a week...[March 17] "Michael's muscles have became too weak to sit up in a wheelchair. He has developed a new growing bedsore from always lying down. He may be catheterized to help with staying dry and healing which may have other side effects. Despite all the really hard to bear circumstances, Michael is mostly very peaceful. Elisabeth's joints, bones and painful sciatic nerve improved quickly. A bad cold has healed rapidly. Emotionally, she has a lot of sadness about Michael's situation and sometimes strong feelings of helplessness. It is simultaneously a sad, deepening and enriching time."... [May 4] Michael is now in intensive care with fever and very low blood pressure due to an infection. Elisabeth is exhausted from coughing and sinusitis.
Update Saturday, May 11, 2019
“Yesterday morning Michael made his transition peacefully during his sleep. Elisabeth is full of love and sadness and asking for ongoing support for him, for her and for the family’s grieving time.”

For Lauri S. in Oakland, California who is anxious after receiving a positive test result from her colon cancer screening....[March 4] Lauri has a consultation with the doctor on April 23 about her follow-up options, and is on the waiting list for an earlier opening. The result may be a false positive from the test procedure, but she really doesn't want to have a colonoscopy.... [April 9] The doctor had a cancellation so Lauri's appointment has changed to April 15. She has become more resigned to having a colonoscopy and is now looking for holistic forms of help to balance her physical energy in the preparation day and with the anesthesia during the procedure.
Update Tuesday, May 7, 2019
Lauri's doctor gave her many supportive suggestions for making her colonoscopy prep easier. The procedure is now scheduled for May 24, with a shorter-acting anesthetic which hopefully will also reduce any adverse reactions afterwards.

Update Monday, May 6, 2019
Anna's cancer blocked her bile duct. Emergency surgery was needed to fit a stent to get the bile flowing. Unfortunately in the procedure her gall bladder was pierced and became infected. Anna is being administered strong antibiotics to combat the infection. Although weary from lack of sleep, she is fighting and has not lost her sense of humor. She is hoping that the right combination of antibiotics can be found to reduce the infection, that the side effects are manageable and that she may have a couple of weeks at home near the sea. "I would like one last swim, I am such a water baby!" she says. Continued support also for her husband, David, and family.
