    Hi Rose,
    I am so glad to hear of Jim's continuing progression. I wish he had more energy for bathing and shaving though. I wonder if a bit of 02 to get him upstairs might help even if he thinks he...

    Rose,
    Bathing Jim on the toilet is a great idea! You are so right that the warm water will stay warm and it won't be so much bending for you. If you are washing Jim's legs and feet, maybe a pillow...

    Dear Rose,
    You have never nursed Jim (or anyone) through cancer before, so it sounds like such a terrible thing to try to judge new symptoms and not know whether to call 911, try treatments at home...
