Thank you for the warm welcome. I am so sad and lonely- it's comforting to see that people are out there listening.
My dad was operated on at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD on Nov 8th by Dr Rudloff, an amazing and wonderful surgeon. No one here in Norfolk would operate on him because it was so risky and involved and so we felt fortunate to have found help at NCI. The surgery was very involved and over 70% of the liver was removed. He went into liver failure afterwards but they were not concerned because his liver was regenerating and improving until he got sepsis from pneumonia. His liver never recovered after the sepsis.
I do talk about it some but no one understands. Its hard to move forward when each day that passes makes me feel like he is disappearing.
I dont have a relationship with my mother and none of my sisters live near.
