So the biopsy results are in. He has colon and lymph nodes cancers. He'll be starting chemo after his stomach/colon heals from surgery.
oh chemo is no fun my daughter also has cancer. best of luck to your dad on this difficult journey
Dad came home just before the snow storms and seemed to be doing well until tonight. Throwing up and had shivers. Back in hospital. Please pray for my Dad.🙏🙏🙏
So sorry to hear this... if Dr. Google is correct, and it hasn't spread beyond the lymph nodes, it sounds like it's around stage 3 - so it is possible to beat this. Of course the oncologist would be able to tell you better.
We lost my father in law to pancreatic cancer (stage 4, it had spread *everywhere*) in October, so I understand the stress and pain of having a loved one going through all this. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hugs!
As someone who has also dealt with cancer in my family, my heart goes out to you. Wishing you and your family fortitude and peace in the journey to come.
Thank you everyone. Apparently the doctors didn't do a great job reattaching his remaining colon to his bowel and now the doctors are deciding if they should re-operate and reattach in case it's leaking fluids and such into his body. However they have to wait till he's strong enough. Another complication before he can start his chemo/radiation treatments for his cancers.
Again thank you for your prayers, support and words of encouragement. My family really appreciates it.
Photo of my parents when my Dad was able to come home for a few days during the snow storm. He really loves spending time with his granddaughters, especially his youngest, our baby Angelica.
Sending positive energy your way Anthony. Hope everything can go as well as it can go.
I see my own parents when I look at the pictures. My heart goes out to you, you are all in my thoughts.
Again, thanks for all the support, prayers, and well wishes everyone. My Dad was actually released from the hospital today but now my mom's knee has given out and she can't walk. This may be a result of internalized stress over my Dad's ongoing health concerns. Please add my mom to your prayers. Thank you.
