My Mom, Marietta Horn was admitted into the hospital on 12/26/15. A week prior she was in Berlin, Germany visiting family friends. I saw pictures of her in front of a Christmas tree looking healthy and happy. She arrived home from Berlin stating her stomach wasn't feeling well and she was struggling to keep food down and decided to visit her primary Dr. The Dr. advised her to go to the hospital in which days later she was given the diagnosis of stage 4 bile duct cancer. Bile Duct Cancer, what is that? We never heard of it. Well I know all too well about it now. My Mom's treatment plan was pallative care. She did receive one round of chemotherapy, but that did more harm than good. It was discontinued and her wishes were to stay in the hospital. I asked her if she wanted to go home even just for one last visit to see her animals. She loved her animals, where I acquired my love for animals too. She couldn't bare to see them one last time, although I was able to get my dog in her hospital room for a visit. That was a great visit, I remember it fondly. The nurse helped me sneak my dog in, only therapy dogs were technically allowed in. Sadly 2 months to the day she was admitted my Mom passed away on 2/26/16. I am running this race in memory of her, Marietta Horn.
