Topic: Dad's progress
Have not been here in a while.Just touching base on my dad's progress. H
e is back on the gemcitabine every other week.He had a break and the cancer grew some.He had another 3 cycles of treatment.Another PET scan and it showed a decrease in the activity in his larger tumor, but 2 small new spots found nearby.Not sure how to feel about that.Gain some and lose some I guess. He is a survivor for 2 years last month.He is doing well except when the chemo tires him out. He is such a fighter and still plans on trying to beat this. I think his attitude has helped his survival.I worry about his spirit though because with each PET scan he gets more discouraged.This takes such a toll on us all emotionally and we need to try and redirect ourselves so that we can focus on the positive. I know you all understand what I mean.
