My husband, Richard, died on February 21, 2006. He had an MRI that showed he had a brain tumor. His brain tumor was at the base of his brain that controlled all of his motor functions hence his vision, hearing and walking were affected. After his first surgery at Hershey Medical Center, he had to have a tracheotomy because he was unble to breathe on his own. In August we had to move him to Health South because the insurance company was pushing for him to go to a nursing home. The day that they moved him was the day we found out he had Stage iV cancer that was aggressive aNd hard to treat, At Health South we found out he had pneumonia and mercer. Since he was unable to do the required therapy we had to move him to a nursing home in
September. He was always getting infections and so was in and out of the hospital many times. They gave him some therapy but eventually that stopped too. He had to speak to us through a piece that covered his trach. He was never able to eat so had to be fed through a feeding tube. His eyesight, hearing and walking never got any better. Everyday he asked us to bring him home for just one day but his medical complications were so extreme that we were unable to do so. He lived for seventeen months in the home. While he was sick, people would call at least once a week to check on us. I am a very emotional person and had a hard time talking to anyone about it. After he died, the pastor only called us once to see how we are doing. A year after he died, I told my pastor I was having a hard time so we talked. Basically, he told me my husband would not be happy with the way I was acting so I never talked to him again. No one from our church family ever called. That is why I feel that I am stuck and unable to move forward with my life I can say other than my sister Diane who was always there for me I have only one other friend. My husband and I did everything together. I would appreciate some godly wisdom and advice. Thank you! Sincerely, Linda Hall.
