Topic: Dad's Journey Continues
It's been awhile since I've posted. It has now been 9 months since dad was diagnosed with bile duct cancer. He has had a total of 6 hospital stays, 7 ER visits and 2 very close calls where we thought he was leaving us. Currently he is home and having many up and down days...fevers, pain and lots of fatigue. His weight has gone from 190 down to 137. It is extremely hard to see him in this state. Two weeks ago he was able to attend my nephew's high school graduation. It was a very emotional weekend as he was not sure he would make it. I am traveling home next weekend to be with him for his 69 birthday and Father's Day. I am so looking forward to celebrating with him and the family and hoping he is feeling okay. This week has been challenging for him.
This journey has shown me the strength that both mom and dad hold! They are simply amazing! I love them both so much.
This website and discussion has helped me get through all of this. When I need strength, I pray and then come here to pull for the strengths of all of you!
