my name is Jacqueline and it has been a week now that my small family is living in a nightmare. After taking my father to the doctor due to a car accident he had a few months back he has had Cat Scans of his back left and right and blood test left and right and now the doctor tells us he has a large amounts of red cells and his blood is extremely thick and has Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and maybe he has Cancer, we are all so scared and very worried his doctor advised us to go see an oncologist he referred us to, we are going to take him on Tuesday and it seems like for ever. My father and my small family are very close we would be devastated if something were to happen to him he is the joy of this house and he is a kind person, as i write this I remember a few days before Christmas he had bought some lottery ticked and he won a thousand dollars he was so happy and as him and I walked out the grocery store he saw this man and two children selling mistletoes for one dollar and asked him have you guys had supper yet and the man said no, then the man began to tell him how the economy had gotten to him and his family, his wife and him and three of their children lived in a van after talking to him a few minutes I remember the cold breeze in my face as we were leaving he said hey kid to one of the children here ill buy a mistletoe gave the kid the lottery ticket and said keep the change have a great Christmas. That is the kind of father I have and now he might have cancer, he is 60 years old he has never smoked rarely has a glass of wine and eats healthy. I have read many of your experiences and I thank you greatly because some are just breath taking I'm so scared I am sorry if I have bored you with my story but we are living a nightmare and he seems to be so depressed. He has not been diagnosed but having been referred to an oncologist and told he has some sort of cancer that was not there before I'm talking about a span of months.
I found this page and it was very hesitant to log in as if as me becoming a member I was somehow accepting he will have cancer, but here I am I am probably not making any sense to you guys but all I know is I am so scared. Thank you for everything.
