Sad news

Dear friends and family,

It is with great sadness that I share with you that Andy left us last night. Andy had been tired of late but had a very good evening Friday. He woke yesterday with a new and sharp pain in his abdomen in addition to his usual discomfort from fluid retention. The pain did not subside throughout the morning so around 2:00 an ambulance was called and he was transported to Regional Medical Center in San Jose. There we learned, much to our great surprise, that Andy was already experiencing acute organ failure and was acutely dying. Our son Russell and I were at the hospital a

Hard to believe...

Teo significant events this week- on Wednesday, the Silicon Valley Interreligious Council held a celebration of my life achievement in interfaith relationship-building Over 100 people attended, and I revived commendations from the County Supervisors, the: California Assembly, and SiVIC, along with a book of letters from well-wishers. The Sunnyvale Singers sang four pieces and an impromptu group of three of my Thacher classmates and I rendered some Bob Dylan Songs. Some marvelous photos of the event taken by Steve Herrerra can be seen at https://steveherrera.smugmug.com/Andy-Kille-A-Celebratio

New Wheels

Well, I had to give up my driving (my car is a manual transmission, and my feet don't work any more on the clutch. But I did invest in a new rollator to replace the walker. They call it the "Empower" model and it certainly is much more mobile than the walker- I don't have to pick it up all the time, the wheels are big enough that they don't hang up in every crevice. And it's got all the amenities- a nice seat for when you need to take a break (an important consideration), a luggage compartment under the seat, a removable fanny pack that attaches with velcro, and even a cup holder! Doesn't get

More of the same

Went to Stanford yesterday for a second opinion consultation with another of their oncologists. No surprises. Following the failure of the two previous chemotherapy rounds to slow the spread of the cancer, he said there were really no viable alternatives. They could try one possibility that would use a drug not normally used with pancreatic or appendiceal cancers that MIGHT not add to my neuropathy (but no promises) on the chance that it might work. "It's a philosophical question at this point," he said.

I know that my remaining time is limited, no matter what, and I just didn't want to spend i

I can hear! (Sorta)

A visit to the ENT doctor today revealed that I have, in fact, recovered some hearing in my right ear. I can hear the lowest range of tones they test normally, and the second lowest has improved 50%. From there on, though, it’s a bust. The range that is essential for voice recognition is still way below average, and even when the tones are amplified, I can’t distinguish those sounds that make the difference between words.

I’m doing pretty well- feeling somewhat better now that chemo has left my system and immunities have been able to build up a bit. I consult with another oncologist next

Ways to help

In addition to the occasional doctor’s appointment, there are a couple of added things as we move into the next stages. I’m glad to have visitors- preferably in the afternoon, and please call before coming. We also appreciate food- dinner casseroles and easy prep. My tastes lean toward Southwestern, Italian, and the like- pasta, chicken, etc. I’ll see if I can figure out how to put this into a calendar item
