Another great show! Wish I could be in the audience and win just ONE present. It would be most helpful with Christmas. I've been entering the contest daily, but not sure if the site is working right. I do get the e-mail to confirm, so I guess I'm doing it right. I love your show. It cheers me up. The dancing gets everyone started, and then your guest stars are so funny. You seem to ask them just the perfect questions - questions that not every host would ask. Ellen, you are a natural for this job. Thanks for making my day, every day.
I love Loni Love on your show....she is hysterical.
Well 8 days ago I told this story. My girfriend was moved to a hospital in Sycamore and stayed there one day. Her family had her taken out of that place and brought home where she was to have hospice care. She was given 3 to 6 months, then they changed the diagnosis to 1 to 3 months. This was all last week. She came home for 4 days and and passed. I was at her side holding her hand until the breath left her body. It was terrible, but she is finally at peace. Meanwhile (last week) her husband was at dialysis and they rushed him to the hospital. His daughter took him out of the hospital on Monday of this week, even though the hospital didn't want him to leave, but she knew her mother had only a few days left and he would want to be with her. Now mother is gone and father is very ill and grieving on top of it, and their only daughter has to handle all of this.
This is an unbelievable story. My girlfriend has been taking her husband to dialysis three days/week for over 15 years. He has had all the complications associated with it such as heart issues, pneumonia. About three years ago she developed stage 2 breast cancer. She too has diabetes and needed to go to dialysis, so on top of going to chemo, she also went to dialysis 3 days a week with her husband. Well her breast cancer isn't getting better with treatment, but worse. It is now an aggressive stage 4. She has been in and out of hospitals for these past 3 years. She recently had a rod put in her leg; they took a sample of the bone to check to see if cancer spread. It had. The rod didn't help her walk, so the doctors decided to replace her hip. That was done about a month ago. She came back from University of Chicago hospital to our local hospital and has been in therapy. The pain is intense and she gets tired out from the therapy, dialysis 3 days a week, blood platelets, and doesn't eat much. Now it was found that the cancer spread to her stomach and liver. They are moving her today to another hospital for acute care as she has septis now from a wound on her back. Meanwhile, her husband has been in the hospital for about 3 weeks, came home from the hospital for a week and now is back in with pneumonia. They don't give him much more time, as they gave my girlfriend 1-3 months time. She has one daughter who with the help of her husband has been going through all this unbelievable process. We don't want my girlfriend to die but nothing is working. The daughter has her parents live with them in a rented house, and if the parents pass, it will be a huge loss in every way...as they won't be able to pay the rent. Have you ever heard of such a story? I don't know how my girlfriend even can survive, but she does so without saying a thing about her condition. She just stays positive. So now the move to Sycamore, Illinois to another hospital. Is there any hope???
