Today marks the one-year anniversary of the passing of the most amazing man in the prime of his life Gone without a chance. Wade was diagnosed with one of the most deadly aggressive cancers on our planet glioblastoma brain cancer. Wade had been suffering silently with minor seizures that I now see in pictures looking back. But it wasn't until August 28th that way it had fallen and collapsed at work due to a seizure. Take him to the emergency room by ambulance it started a long process of them trying to figure out what was wrong with him besides the broken shoulder that he had cost himself when collapsing during the seizure. 4 months later on August 27th Wade was brought to the hospital with a multitude of issues going on and it was done in the emergency room at Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa California that Wade was diagnosed with a brain tumor it was unknown at that time the degree of the tumor but they did say that it was massive. Wade was admitted it's a Grossmont Surgical Intensive Care Unit where they proceeded at that point to make him very comfortable that got him a medication that got fluids in he was feeling weak but alive because now the pain had stopped the dizziness it stopped the seizures were being controlled he was aware he had a brain tumor but I never know whether or not for sure if he knew that his brain tumor was affect cancer. Family friends co-workers all gathered by his bedside and we chuckled and we laugh family came from Arizona the grandchildren were there we all had high hopes that the following day Wade's brain tumor would be removed and so he would have a long time ahead of him healing and he would have to learn much we were all in it for the long run. That night I stayed by his bedside and how this hand I don't know if I told him how much I loved him I can't remember I just know I never let go of his hand and he was holding my hand very tightly. The following morning with surgery it was only supposed to be about an hour and a half long 4 1/2 hours later the doctor came out and could not even look at me in the eyes.he told me that they got as much as I could not as much as they wanted to and I said good then he'll be going into a long-term care facility so he could begin to the healing process. And that's when he told me he said not everything went well your husband brain tumor Not only was massive but it had metastasized to every area of his brain including his brain stem and that the cancer was so aggressive I'm not there to be no way he would come back from this and that we had decisions that needed to be made and discussed. After being discussed with the family it was determined at that point that this was in fact the end of the road for an incredible Man & incredible father on and on and on. And I had to do the one thing that no wife or husband should ever have to do and that is sign a do not resuscitate order or DNR. Couple days later August 31st at 4:08 a.m. Wade passed away comfortably. The Beast cancer had one and sadly he never even got to fight. this Beast. Wade always wanted to live forever. You are so greatly missed and loved by so so many. Our hearts are broken on this the first anniversary of you getting your wings. ❣🦋❣🦋❣🥀🥀💔💔💔
