I have not logged on for almost two weeks but yesterday i tried to catch up a little on how everyone has been. Well I have good news and not so good news, I will start with the good news...I have been away on a weeks break on the sunshine coast of Queensland down here in oz and I have some wonderful news my boyfriend Steve popped the big question and we are getting married!!!!!
I am sooooooo excited and especially for my dad - he was more happy than ever, telling me he has a great thing to look forward to and fight like hell to make sure he will be here to see his daughter get married...... then the not so good news - 2 days after i got home dad was taken into hospital :(
He went into hospital with really severe pain, his last chemo cycle was 3 weeks ago and he had a very bad 3 weeks, there was maybe one day that he felt half ok, it really knocked him around-big time.
So into hospital he went and the docs said his pain was partly from the chemo side effects but mostly due to constipation. I am amazed and just so concerned that he has been in hospital for 6 days and has not been able to go to the toilet, i cant believe that nothing that he has been given including all the laxatives you can imagine - still nothing. Has anyone experienced this problem???
Aparently there is nothing in my dads large bowel its all up further so an enema wont work. I am so scared there is another blockage somewhere, although he has had xrays twice but nothing has been noticed. Now i dont think he will be able to have his next chemo treatment on thursday because of all this. I hope and pray that today my mum will ring me and say that he finally has been to loo.
What a week this has been, talk about mixed emotions.
