From One Day To Another

A lot has happened since last weekend. We had a great time in Las Vegas with Marco's sisters Moshura's Sister,Leezy, Momma M , Salt N Pepper and Medicated Man. But all the fun came to a stop and we had to come come early because Marco started to have pain on his right side followed by shortness of breath. We came home and Larry the hospice nurse came soon after we arrived from Vegas. He ordered an oxygen machine to see if it would help him breathe better.

Well Thanksgiving Day Marco was feeling good and he decided to BBQ his famous turkey and roasted another while my mom made hers in the oven. They all came out perfect and delish...not to mention all the side.

Last night, Marco had a bad night with fever and severe pain it would take his breath away. He could hardly speak 2 to 3 words when he was trying to catch his breath. He started to take his medication every four hours as directed on the bottle. His fever kept spiking up but didn't seem to be going down. The pain reach 9-10 level (tear point).

Finally, this morning we called Larry and he rushed over. After talking with him he ordered a bed for Marco and changed his medication. The pain just seems to take his breath away and there is nothing I can do. This afternoon he started to take his new medication and it seemed to work a little but tonight the fevers have been spiking up again highest tonight 103.5. Had him jump into the shower to try to bring it down so will see how the night goes.

Marco says he feels something going on in his lung. We all just hope that the pain is under control and it will make everything okay.

I made a promise to Marco that if at anytime it was getting rough for him...with pain, breathing that I would let everyone know that there would be no visiting. Having to talk, when he has to catch his breath is not easy to see, so I will not be putting him through that. I am asking that all visit be postponed till further notice. I would expect everyone to understand. Thank you in advance.
