The last few days have gone very fast.  We were told on Monday that the melanoma is enlarging and the chemo didn't help.  For my OWH friends, the oncologist was an Army doctor and recently returned from Iraq.  I did thank him for his service.  He also thanked my husband for his sevice.

On Tuesday, we brought my husband home under the care of Hospice.  We're trying set up a routine for the nurses to come out for care.  We have the hospital bed set up in the living room, next to his recliner.  I will be the primary caregiver with help from family, friends and Hospice.

I probably won't be making many cards for a while, but I'll be back when I can.  I truly believe in this cause.


  1. I am so very, very sorry. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Thank you for the update. May God's gentle hand guide you on this journey you are taking.

  3. Thanks for the update Velda...been wondering how you are but didn't want to intrude. Love and prayers to you all.

  4. I am so sorry Velda and will keep you and your family in my prayers.
