I've become a little superstitious and disappear when things are relatively calm, perhaps trying to emulate some type of normalcy. My dad is doing OK and his last CT (2 weeks ago) showed no progression so we are all a little relieved. He is still thin as rail (130-135 lbs) but he seems more energized and a little more lively. He still has consistent stomach issues but we still think it's the chemo since it's not worse and it seems to accentuate when he's a couple of days after the infusions.
I do agree it's very worrisome to see people stop posting and stop hearing from them without thinking the worse.
Hopefully more people are like me and try to be quiet when things are OK so this disease does not totally overtake our lives.
Best of luck to everyone!
