In Memoriam>Good news [Lonewolf Ed]
Lonewolf Ed 04:51 PM 01-24-2015
I thought I'd start a new thread for updates on my cancer treatments and whatever else is going on, since the bad news thread title is misleading now.

My last treatment went better than the previous two and my chest wound is still closed up, which is a good thing. My arm is getting slightly stronger and I hope to resume lifting dumbbells next week. I need to build up my strength again, because I am going back to Denmark in May and I am extremely pumped about that! I'd like to be able to schlepp my own checked bag and not have someone else lifting it for me.

It's going to be a fabulous trip, 6 weeks and a couple of days for me. My brother is going along as well as my friends Chipp and Rod. Chipp is staying close to 3 weeks and has not gone with me over there since 2006 so he is also very pumped to be going. It will be Rod's first trip and he will be there for 2 weeks. I will get to be a tour guide. Also, I am throwing a party in my favorite pub of all, the wonderful, ever-magnificent Irish House in Aalborg on May 7th. The owner and I are friends and he will give me a little discount. We'll have Irish stew and brews in the cellar and I hope to have around 25 family and friends there. I might bill it as the "Fu** Cancer Party." A few months back, I was not sure I'd ever be able to go over to Denmark again or if I'd even be alive, but the cancer hasn't gotten me yet. I'm doing a number on it, instead.

Some other cool things I plan to do when I am back in my ancestral lands include a wine tasting in a castle, touring another castle and the northernmost manor home in the country, and visiting Skagen, the top of Denmark, where you can stand on a little patch of beach and have one foot in one sea and one in another. They also have a brewpub up there I am wanting to check out. I will start and end my trip in Aalborg and spend 5 weeks in an apartment I rent that is very close to the beach. I can hardly wait for May 4th to roll around!

Just a quick update. I am under home hospice care and the director is a friend of mine from way back. She asked me if I ever needed hospice that I go with her group because she wants to take care of me. I am having good days, such as this one so far, and bad days with pain, such as two nights ago when my back had me in agony so I couldn't sleep and I called my friend at midnight. She told me to take another hydromorphone even though I had one two hours earlier, but did that second one ever knock me clean out when it took effect. My pain level was a 6 or 7 out 10 that night and I seriously said to God, "If you want to call me home tonight, I'll come a'running to the light."

I have three drains in my abdomen now, two are for my liver and one to drain fluid build up from my belly area. The drain was placed Monday for my stomach and they drained 4.5 liters from the area. My nurse friend took a liter out of me two days after that and will continue to tend that every three days. I'm feeling hungry and my pastor is coming to bring me Communion in an hour, so I had better get with things here.

Thank you for the update, Ed. Is there any particular prayer that I can pray for you? You can PM me if you'd like.
It's good to hear from you again!

I think just praying for me to have comfortable days and nights would do the trick, thanks!

Thanks for the update, Ed. Still thinking and praying for you every day. I mainly pray for your peace, and a clarity of vision that will lead you home. God bless you.

I'm out of words of wisdom so I'll leave my favorite verse from one of my favorite songs.

[Chorus:]
Well raise another round boys and have another glass
Be thankful for today knowing it will never last
Still lets leave the world laughing when our eulogies are read
May we all get to heaven 'fore the devil knows we're dead
May we all get to heaven 'fore the devil knows we're dead
