Topic: Latest on my dad
It has been a while since I posted, but I wanted to give an update. Dad completed his first round of chemo. He went once a week every other week, for a total of 4 chemo sessions. Dad always felt better after receiving chemo. He went back to MDA to get an update. They found that his tumors had all decreased except for 2 in his liver. I think they were actually a little bigger. They also found a new tumor on his spine. Good news was that his blood clots were gone too. After dad was given a hearing test from his audiologist he got the ok to continue chemo, which will be this Wednesday. Dad has still continued to lose weight. He has now lost 90 pounds since August. His main problem is not being able to eat. He said everything tastes like paper & he can't eat more than a couple of bites. I'm extremely worried about his lack of nutrition & calorie intake. He has zero energy and mentioned he doesn't even feel human anymore. It's devastating & heartbreaking to see him in this state. Before his diagnosis he was just so active & full of life. Any suggestions on him conquering these eating battles would be wonderful. Thank you all.
