Early this morning my husband died. Jim had entered the hospital through the Emergency Room late Sunday afternoon. Yesterday he was moved to Intensive Care and we had hoped the crisis would pass, but it was not to be. It was totally unexpected. His kidneys shut down and that led to other complications.
He had worked all last week and I had even gone to Keith's in Austin for a few days. When I returned on Sunday he was complaining about being exhausted and I thought he might be anemic from the chemo. He also had shortness of breath, so I took him to the ER and he was admitted.
I'm thankful that he went quickly and didn't suffer. The kids are all here now and we're going to be making funeral plans tomorrow. He will be buried in New Jersey. We're all kind of in shock right now.
I haven't been reading E-mails and probably will end up going in and deleting in order to catch up. Reid will be having a core needle biopsy this Friday and possibly surgery the following week. There's a lot going on.
I'll post updates here. Things are pretty hectic right now.
