I never know what to say at times like this. I can do nothing but be supportive and pray. We drove to the hospital after work last night and got back home late last night. Jim had a cat scan yesterday and we should see what the results are sometime today. Lee's dad took a turn for the worse yesterday. The doctor let Jan know that Jim seems to have an infection and it is progressing the cancer; Advance Stage 4 Cancer. He’s not strong enough for treatment. This means he will not be able to start chemo. They will only be able to treat him through an IV and that is to make him comfortable. He will be receiving an antibiotic to fight the infection and buy time. She took him to the hospital yesterday morning bc he had gotten too weak to get out of bed and his eye color was abnormal. They transported him to another hospital by ambulance. Jan said that the doc told her Jim could go fast or it may take some time. Either way, the way the cancer is progressing and the options available-there’s not much more they can do. Our heart hurts. Pray for our family. We can hope he regains his strength. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. Psalm 28:7 Keep ya posted.
