Thread: Hidee :) In memorium Bruce Henderson

    Hidee :) In memorium Bruce Henderson

    Born March of 1943. Died November of 2012 after a ten year battle with colo-rectal cancer. He and my mother "almost" made it to their 50th wedding anniversary.

    As all of you who knew him well here, he is sitting on his tractor in his overalls looking for some tomatoes and sunflowers to plant in heaven. And it is a better place for it. May he finally be at rest.

    Posted by his daughter.

    Many pictures at http://hidee-bruce.livejournal.com/

    ...and I have promises to keep.
    and miles to go before I sleep.

    He had a kind face! I am so sorry for your loss...hugs and prayers to you and yours!
    Mom (65) diagnosed with locally advanced adenocarcinoma on May 2012
    First line of 5-fu and radiation for 5 weeks allowed cancer to get slightly worse.
    July 2012 Gemzar and Tarceva started.
    October hospitalized due to ketoacidosis and dehydration
    November scan showed pancreas tumor reduced by 47% and tumor markers coming down.
    March 2013 ct showed cancer stable, but mom repeatedly hospitalized for infections, low sodium, weakness and malnutrition.
    Mom lost her fight on March 18, 2013
