I have not been on here for a while. I just wanted to let everyone know Bob will be getting his PET Scan Wednesday and I have been worrying..which I am sure all of you have gone thru...I think I told you guy's we have had no support from his family. Brother's Sister's..only his Mother who has been praying daily. His 2 brothers are taking us to Court on Wednesday trying to get Guardianship of Bob's Mom. Bob cannot miss his PET Scan, so if the Attny cannot postpone the Court hearing I will have to bring her alone with our Atty...Bob and I are POA'S on her will and have been there for her all along. The 2 Brothers took her Townhouse and she is living in Asst. Living. Theey tricked her into signing away her home in 2006. She is listed as Taxpayer only. I am so stressed about next week that I have been getting sick. Back to Bob..he is still not able to eat much of anything at all yet. He can do soup, tried oatmeal a few times, but it's so hard and takes so long. He is taking 4 cans of Isosource a day and trying Protien Shakes, Ice Cream...not much else. His taste is not back yet. He want's the Feeding Tube out, but I really do not think it's the time as he cannot eat enough to get along at all. I am hoping the Dr's will not rush him getting it out. He did say something about maybe the 27th of this month..if they want to do it I will have to speak up. I am wondering about Vitimins, has anyone found any Vitimins that are good for Cancer Patients?? I have the Anti Cancer Book, but have not had time to read alot of it. I may just have to call his Nurse Practitioner and find out about suppliments. I am now rambling..sorry...will let you know what transpires next week. Also, about how many day's does it take to get the Scan results? I was also thinking I read something about sugar and the PET..should Bob stay away from all sugars before the scan??? Sorry to unload, but these are trying times and I know so many of you have been thru this and maybe could give me some input.
