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.
Update Tuesday, February 5, 2018
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.
