Vanderbilt has said that there is nothing else they can do. Oakley has had so many different kinds of chemo and his cancer continues to come back and spread. He has cancer in both shoulders and it has started down one arm. His ribs are pretty much covered. He now has cancer in both sides of his pelvis and cancer in his left knee. His doctor had a talk with him and ask him what he wanted them to do. He told them that he was tired of being a "guinea pig" and if they didn't have anything that they knew would help him then all he wanted was the pain medicine and radiation to help the pain. He's tired Judy, but he says he is not ready to die and he is not giving up. He has faith and believes that God won't take him until it's his time to go.
In 4 more months it will be 3 years that he has gone through tests, surgeries, needles, drug after drug, infection after infection, ER visits and admission after admission, IV's at home and in the hospital, physical therapy etc. Even though he doesn't want to give up, I believe he is at the place that he has had enough. I can't blame him. I could not have gone through what he has. My God, I don't want to loose him.
I don't want to lose him either.....I want a mircle.
Could I ask you once again to pray for Oakley.
Loving you all,
