my dad. It makes me so sad to see him so weak, and tired, and pissy crotchety, man is he crotchety. He said the last 2 days have been hard on him, I've stayed away do to running a fever, and body ache ( felt ok enough to go see him tonight for a bit ).. He is having radiation done on his back, and hip. He said he feels so tired, I know he has thrown up a couple times, but the thing is he came down with a bout of bronchitis about 3 days into his radiation ( which he got treatment for ), but he is now saying it feels like his lungs are filling up, and it gets hard for him to breathe. he said if he gets up and walks around he can breath fine, but if he falls asleep or takes a nap he gets up stuggling to beathe. He does breathing treatments, so we are hoping to get him through the weekend, then get him to the doc on monday. we just are not sure which doc to get him to. His radiologist, or regular physician..I told him to call if he thought he needed to go to the ER before then. Plus i should add, they removed a good size tumor from his spine,and alot of his muscles in the general chest/ lower stomach area may have permanent nerve damage, only time will tell if they wake up for him. It has only been 5 weeks since his surgey, so he really is going through alot at once. God it felt good to get this off my chest.. an i just say... My name is Missy, and CANCER has tsught me to LIVE IN THE MOMENT!!!!!!
