Look UP, Press Forward and Fight On!

Look UP, Press Forward and Fight On!

Last night it was decided by Nate, Alicia and I that Nate needed extra help. Alicia called the Oncologist and Family Practice and both Nate’s Drs were on call. She was able to describe what he was battling and it was decided in the morning we would bring him into the Oncologist at 9am see what they could do then head to hospital for Direct admit for draining.

The 9am plan soon went by. Nate’s fatigue was monumental and it took us 2hrs to get him ready and out the door. A plea to the Lord to help Nate, to help us and to help Drs know what to do was said. Alicia was in contact with Drs as we drove to the Oncologist office.

Once there a flurry of help and concern. IV with steroids administered. Another new drug Nate’s body has not experienced. He began to struggle breathing and became super uncomfortable. The Dr was called in and said this should not be impacting you this way? Then it was discovered the oxygen tank he was hooked up had run out of air Oops!😬

With air and IV’s Nate decided that going to hospital was not needed for draining, we would continue how we do it at home. Genuine concern from Dr Samuelson the cancer dr as he sat down with Nate and with real compassion and tenderness said “Nate, I need to ask where your mentally state is? Have I put you through too much? Are you done? Do you want to continue to fight?

Nate looked at him and said YES.

Ok then we need to see how we can help you maintain until immunotherapy kicks in. Maintain hydration, calories, breathing and comfort. Brainstorming, decisions and a revisit Monday were put in place.

This will take ALL our efforts. Reminding Nate to drink and eat keeping track of old and new meds and schedules. Nate being willing to take a sip, a bite even when he is not hungry or it tastes bad. Continual prayers and positive encouragement this is his fight to literally survive and we know he is NOT alone! Thank you each for your prayers, love and support it means a lot.♥️

🙏🏻Forward with Faith🙏🏻
