I spoke with C.W. who is currently at I believe one of his sons's homes. He says he will be there for several days so I told him I will call him there daily to see how things are going. Indeed Joy has lost 70lbs of fluids, has a 17cm tumor, if I am not mistaken, her dialysis was no longer on the table. I asked C.W. if they are still looking at treatment options or just trying to make her comfortable at this point. C.W. told me that Joy has been sent to the palliative care unit of the hospital, that there doesn't seem to be any treatment that would benefit her. In a very quiet voice he told me she won't be here for long. My heart wept, Joy and C.W.'s love has been a love story of dedication, determination and committment through the very worst that life can throw at someone, for so many years. I have been so moved and so inspired by this dynamic pair for so many years. I have hated to watch them both suffer, I have hated to hear C.W. say that Joy isn't here much longer as what a bright light she has been here for us all. Please everyone say special prayers for our very special board friends. They really need us now.
