she's coming home

After a week at UW Hospital, Rhonda is coming home today. There is no explanation for the fever she keeps getting nightly and we received some harsh news while she was there. Several tests later we learned that Rhonda has 3 spots on her brain, the spot on her liver remains and there are others. The pain in her arm is barely manageable with pain meds so they decided not to do any more treatment. This is something that has been coming for a while and have always known it would. It's just something you can never really prepare yourself for. So, today, she is coming home. We will make her comfortable and enjoy our days with her; however many we can get.
My kids have had a rough week not being able to see her; same goes for Colby. They've all been fighting bad colds. Now that they have chosen no more treatment they can all see her, the risks of getting sick don't really apply anymore. I can't tell you how awful it is knowing what the future will be like, watching someone die is never pleasant. In the meantime, we will be making the most of what we have left.
