Vintage silver cupid pin with jewels-gifted by Nelson for Valentine’s Day in the 80’s
Last Thursday Nelson decided to discontinue chemo as the side effects have become too overwhelming to tolerate and his tumor markers continue to soar. Yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, another painful medical procedure indicated that his cancer is making itself at home in his body and has no intention of loosening its grasp. He does not want more procedures. He wants to live out his days without brutal interventions and so life will unfold as it will. Nelson is relieved to have made these decisions and to know that comfort is the goal from this point forward. The Style Crone feels extreme sadness and tears flow at the ‘drop of a hat’ as the ramifications of these decisions become clear. But today he is here at home with his sense of humor, his insightful perceptions, and his will to continue to experience life to its fullest. Our love story is not over!
