On Easter my friend had to go into hospital by ambulance as he was breathless just walking to the bathroom and shaving. He's been put on oxygen and given antibiotics for chest infection. Tomorrow is the start of a second round of chemo to control rapidly spreading mets in his lung. Thank goodness he's in good hands in hospital.
Luckily my daughter was visiting for Easter and my son's family came over on Saturday. Having them around made a big difference.
My friend's two younger sisters (75 and 73), and his son (41) were also able to visit him.
It's valuable having outside assistance, that's for sure. May we all find those extra resources!
