Well, my parents have decided to go with Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. They really like the Dr. alot. However, she's putting him in a wait and see status. I'm not thrilled, but whatever she feels. She does feel that he was on the right track in the clinical study and fully understands that it's going to be too hard to get to Pittsburgh in the winter months. He's supposed to have another scan in Dec. then go back to see her in Jan to see what's next. He seems to be ok with everything. My mom did want to go to cancer treatment centers, but my dad isn't interested, so Hopkins it is. The new Dr. had already spoken to the Drs. in PA. and they dicussed my dad. I wasn't happy about that, but I think it's going to be ok. I just want the best for him and I pray this will be the answer. It doesn't sound like he'll ever be a candidate for surgery and I'm trying to except that. So, he'll rest for the holidays and fatten up and wait for the next steps. I'm worried that he'll be off the chemo for so long. I guess that will be ok too. My mom has a call into the Dr. to make sure she understood that correctly. Please keep him in your prayers!!!
Hugs to all!!
