My father is 72 and was diagnosed with low grade stage 3 non-hodgkin's lymphoma right before Christmas 2005. He has started treatments and seems to be doing very well with the exception of the first day. The rituxan caused him to be very sick and chilled but they got that under control and said it was not unusual for the first treatment to do that.His doctor seems to think he can do well with this due to his great health. My father has always been very active and we hope this will help with his treatments. We are a very close family and like you it was very devastating to learn this. We are all being very positive toward him and we are thankful for each day we are together. He has a great outlook and takes the nurses candy every time he goes for treatment...they call him the candyman! Any way i would be glad to stay in touch and let you know how things go. Keep your chin up...he needs your smile now more than ever.
