I have spent the last few nights with Doug & Leeanne.
They have cutoff some off the drugs to bring him around into a coherent state. He gave somewhat of a response when Leeanne called his name. He would try to open his yes, or move his eyebrows, but he was still very much out of it... With his kidneys not in full operation, it is taking a real long time to come off the drugs. Hopefully they can get him to come around today. Leeanne desparately needs to ask him what he would like to do.
He originally went in for his routine check, and from there, some errors have been made. Unfortunately, because of these errors, Doug has not been able to receive his Kemo in a month. They have been trying to deal with the damage that has occurred.
I am sure Leeanne will get around to the details, and will let you know what took place. As of right now, it is not the cancer that is looking to take Doug away from us.
Because he is still responding, we know his mind is still there fighting.
With that alone, Leeanne had decided to give him the chance to overcome the new obstacles. We know that much about Doug. He would want to fight to the very end, and if there is any last thing to try, he would want that...
He doesn't have the word "quit" in his vocabulary.
God bless you Doug!
We are all here for you.......
