Well, things are changing for my dad. He was in the ER on Sunday morning. He had his stent put it in on 11/25 and he hasn't been right since. He's had pain and no appetite. So Sunday he was having chest pains. At the hospital all his labs came back fine. They did many xrays to see if the stent was ok. All is ok there too. So, home he came. He is fighting with my mom about everything she makes for him to eat. He's lost 10 pounds since the 25th. When I talked to the ER Dr. he feels that my dad's constipation is causing the problem. He prescribed milk of magnesia, 2x a day for 3 days. I'm just not sure whatelse to do with my dad at this point. He will only eat very little. He's still complaining of chest pains. Of course I'm thinking the worst at this point. He goes for his PET scan on the 10th and then they see the Dr. on the 17th. When I called him at 11:00, he hadn't eaten anything yet. He told me that he feels he's checking out. He says that he has to listen to his body. I don't know what to say to him anymore. Listening to your body isn't a good thing. He doesn't want to eat, but you do have to try to eat something. He's anxious to get to the Dr. to see what's going on. I know he wants to start his chemo again too, but in the mean time I feel he's giving up. It's so terrible. What's a person to do. Please keep him in your prayers. Just hearing the news of Roy's passing has made me sad once again. 2 passings so close together, Kitten and Roy. May they rest in peace now!! Please keep my dad in your prayers!!
