Hello @jrwilli1,
I am sorry that your husband's situation is so difficullt. I can only suggest that from my brief time with MDS, it does bring nothing but uncertainty. I was diagnosed one year ago, and must admit feeling pretty discouraged, even depressed, and expecting a relatively quick "exit". I am 76. But over the past few weeks, I simply decided that I was going to live another 10 years. I am too old to get a transplant apparently, but in any event, I will keep living... So I encourage the two of you to hope for the same, and even more! I thus encourage you to follow the medial advice at this time...

Thank you for your encouragement. Well after him being up 8+ times last night I decided we were still going to drive the 2 1/2 hours to see our grandsons soccer game. Yes I’m worn out and going to sleep now to see what tonight brings. But I have to keep him hoping to do things and keep up his spirits. The grandson didn’t know we were coming and he was excited to see us. 😘
