First I want to tell you how sorry I am that you had to seek out this site. It is not a club you want to belong to.
I know things look the darkest to you now. My husband Charlie was dx in Mar 2009 with stage iv EC. (Mets to lung, liver, lymph nodes and peritoneal cavity.) Radiation and surgery are not options. Chemo is his only option. He had 4 rounds....finished up in Aug. I thought we would never have any kind of normalcy in our house again. The chemo made him so ill.....lost around 50 lbs......he was so down.
Well the chemo did it's job. It got him into remission. That is the best we can hope for since he cannot be cured. He had a PET scan after 2 rounds of chemo and he was in remission. Had another Pet after the 4th round and he is still in remission. That was in Sept. He is on oral chemo now and has a treatment of Herceptin every 3 weeks. We are praying the oral chemo and Herceptin keeps him in remission. We will have another PET this month and, God willing, it will show no change. But things have changed dramatically
since Aug. He is stronger......we try to walk or ride our bicycles everyday. He even played Santa last night. He was able to help decorate a friends boat on Friday and Charlie dressed up as Santa and was in the boat parade. He is dressing up again today to play Santa for the kids in our community. Earlier this week he was up on a ladder putting up our outside Christmas lights and helped me with our tree. I would have bet you money he would have never been able to do any of this if you had asked me last summer. My point being.....with the help of God (and good doctors) you dad can turn around. He has to fight......that was my mantra when Charlie was first diagnosed. I would tell him over and over again.....
I wish you and your family the best.....and it goes without saying....every new "member" automatically goes on everyone's prayer list....and never under estimate the power of prayer.
