angeleyesforhim Posted May 5, 2006 Report Share Posted May 5, 2006 hello all, my name is sara, im 25 years old and i lost my husband to testicular cancer that turned into lung andbone carcinoma, sort of like Hodgins decease. he was 44 years old and we very little time together, he was sick for about 2 months and just out of no where he died. There were so many things that happened during the process of his dieing, that i dont know where to begin, he thought he had a sinus infection, and could not get rid of this cough he had. so one night i took him to the er he hated doctors and begged me not to take him, but he began to cough up blood. so as his wife and a nurse i did what i had to do. from there things were not the same. It was January 8th he was told he had a tumor on his right lung, the man already fought testicular cancer in 99 and fought it well, but this time he was not so lucky. We had a two year old and a five year old and his 17 year old son. everything was just taken from us.So after doctor appointment after appointment, roger passed on FEeb 21st of 06, i know what you thinking wow!! so fast your not kidding, he even had Lance armstongs doctor in indiana University, he was care flighted there on a ventalator, where at the age of 25 i wathced my husband die slowly and painfully and he had no idea, things began to look up he came off the resirator about 3 weeks after the transfer and was talking to me and sitting up in his bed, he visited with most of his family. it was great the docs were saying lets get you eating and then we will send you home, but the night they told us that, roger just could not get his breath so that was it, he did not want on the ventaltor anymore. so his only option was to die, the fights with his family began, the doctors and his family never told him that he was going to die, they told him that he was going to go to sleep, he never knew he was going to die, so he never took the time to tell me goodbye, his parents then just left the hospital while i was sleeping in his arms and they left, they went back to Ohio and dint stay with there son till he died, they took him from me. and they dint have the nerve to stay with me to watch him die. i had to go through it by myself for 20 hours. please i need a friend Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
