He's gone :-(

It is with a sad and broken heart that I write this overdue update.

We completed cycle 4 and headed back to Kansas. We arrived home early Wednesday morning. The drs had started him on a new anitbiotic and as of Thursday (while in the hospital) he started gettting severe diarhea. Of course the drs didn't think it was it but the chemo. Yet this didn't occur cycle 2.. hmm...

Anyway. On Thursday morning (the 21st) I left for Topeka. Then I got back quarter to 5. James wasn't feeling the best and had had an accident. I helped clean him up and tried to get food in him. Well needless to say he said something about can't swallow then made some funny looks. I called 911 and they arrived within minutes. They started working on him.. They brought him to St. Johns, and he was pronouced dead at 6:10 pm. :-( So James is no longer suffering, but is deeply missed by all that knew him. I know he knows that I love him with all my heart and it saddens me to update this. :-( The funeral arrangements are pending, but will probably be Tuesday.
