Life-changing news about Matt Neumann. Okay to be honest it may not change your life but it sure is changing mine. After many, many years of fighting with my body and a disease that took it over we are nearing the end. I struggled and struggled about how to get this information out to all the people in my life. I have had five different hospital trips in the last seven months. They have been diagnosed as pneumonia, chronic heart failure, interstitial lung disease, too much excess fluid, and a blood clot in my lungs. My last trip at the beginning of December cannot be classified in any of those categories and we really don't have any ideas on how to stop it anymore. We don't know how long this process may take as I could have 3 hours, 3 days, 3 months, or 3 years. The bottom line the end is coming soon and I am no longer going to aggressively fight it. I've entered into hospice care so there are more eyes watching me at home. I needed to get this information out to all of you as if you are getting this you've touched my life in some way and I just hope I have done the same for you. Also being the person I have been I would've hated myself if I didn't give others time to deal with this information while I am still here. I have created a blog located at http://mattslovelycruise.blogspot.com for anyone interested in this journey. This is where I will update my information so that only people who want to know can now and those who don't want to don't have to hear about it. I will put a status update that the blog is updated after I post information. Thank you to everyone for their support, prayers, and wishes over the years as they have meant a lot to me. Everybody has to say it someday so for those of you that this is just easier goodbye everyone and may you go on to accomplish great things.
