I phoned Vince earlier and for the first time he broke down crying and telling me how scared he is. A little later my Mom received a call from the hospital...... All previous plans are closed and mom and I are heading out first thing in the morning for the hospital. Mike will again take care of the home front.
Again thank you for all of the wondrous love and caring all of you have showed me and my family. If the angles come to take my brother to go play with my sister.... then it is what is suppose to happen. I will need a few shoulders to cry on.
I have been trying to keep quiet about my brother Vince. I know you all still have him in your thoughts and prayers. As you know Mike and I were to leave on vacation on the 10th. We spend a week in Az every year and this year we were also going to see my daughter in Texas. These plans have been cancelled.
Vince was out of the hospital one day and then had to return. A week or more ago he had his donor kidney removed. Today we found out that is was full of cancer. The doctors just did a scan on Vince to see if there is more. Even if there is he is so week that kemo is out of the question. Mike and I will leave as planned; stop at mom's, leave our dog there and go down to visit with Vince. Then drive back to mom's. Mike will take our dog home and mom and I will drive her car back down to Sacramento. Wow that sounds confusing but not.....
We have not told Nik, Vince's son yet. We want to see what the whole story is. So here is how wonderful my brother Vince is.
My two other brothers Steve and Pat phoned Vince right away. Vince told them both not to tell me or my mom about the cancer until they did another scan on him. Vince said "mom and Nik get too upset." (my brothers call me Nik) So how sweet is he for worrying about me and mom when he is sooooo sick. I feel like I am blabbing on, I guess because I can't stop crying.
Thanks for listening and caring
