...yes, the chemo has helped somewhat. I guess he wouldnt have made it this far if he wasnt getting it.
Tomorrow he gets an ultrasound on his kidneys...my mom told me they were gonna discuss not continuing the chemo.
My dad will be 70 in October of this year.
His mom died of liver cancer.
I've been having trouble elaborating on things here cuz I end up bawling and I cant friggin see to type.
In May, on Mothers Day of 07, my mom informed us she had bladder cancer.
She did the bcg treatments and they didnt work. She went under an intense 10 hour operation to remove her bladder, build her a new one out of intestine and make her a stoma in her side.
During her month long recovery in the hospital is when my dad started having stomach pains.
I just thought it was ulcers.
It was the cancer...and it was already advanced.
The docs out at Madigan told him the same thing the docs at a non-military hospital told him....6 months to 2 years.
So both my parents in the same year...???? Are you kidding me?????
My mom seems to be on the mend. All of her scans have been coming out clean and she just got her port removed.
My dad is just going downhill so fast....he wants a new truck....he wants a new truck to drive around during these last days.
Well, my mom will have no income when he is gone...or not much of one.
So what is she s'posed to do with a big ol' truck payment..??? But how do we tell him no, you cant get one???
There is just so much happening right now.
He's thinking about now and she is thinking of the future.....
I will say their faith in God is strong...
I dunno....I almost just want this to be all over with....but I dont wanna lose my dad...at least not like this......
