The Never Ending Journey

On February 23rd  Daniel experienced abdominal pain and was admitted to the hospital to  have an obstruction removed from his abdomen.  We thought that  it would be just an overnight stay and then we could return to our daily lives.
 Unfortunately the surgeon reported that cancer tumors had spread on to the wall of his abdomen, so there was no obstruction removal, and he was closed up.
We met with the oncologist and his team this past week. Right  now they feel that chemo is not an option, it would be too difficult for him and now focused on his comfort.
The doctor's feel he may have 6 months to live but as you know the number is just based on statistics.
Daniel is being fed through an IV in his port used previously for chemo.  He does experience pain but that is being controlled by morphine and oxycodone.
We are still praying for a miracle but we thank God for the time given to us.   Thank you for all your support and prayers.
