WOW--isn't that something weird to be excited about???
My dad who was Dx'd with stage 3 or 4 EC (long story) in August just finished 6 weeks of chemo-radiation at Duke. He gets to go home today (3 1/2 hours from Duke)!! HE so needs to get home to rest and recuperate. He sailed thru the first 3 weeks, but week 4 & 5 did him in with vomiting, low blood counts, dehydration, etc. But in the last 2 days he has been able to eat 1/2 sandwich, some pizza and a BIG MAC! Since he was not heavy to begin with he needs to keep his weight up and my mom is so relieved to have more variety than ensure shakes, eggs, cream of wheat etc to offer him. He will get re-staged in Nov. I Pray for the best results possible and that surgery will be an option for him.
