Hoping to hear from some of my friends....this page is soooo hard to navigate, when I want to see posts of friends I cannot figure how to pull them up.....anyhow
It's been 2 months since my dad was hospitalized. He is in the hopspital today with his first bloodclot. It's large and they are starting thinners. He has 2 weeks of radiation and temodar left. However, he just seems weak and sad and grief stricken. Now with the blood clotting it seems this could be the first of many set backs to come.
I have searched for information on how quickly radiation and temodar fail without surgery and it appears that this normally happens about 12 weeks after it's finished. Based on what I see and read I feel like as soon as we finish treatment we are going to be rolling down the next and last hill.
For love of my sis, I'm so sorry to hear about your sister...I've tried to go back and find her original story and what she has been through but I cannot....I pray that you find peace and that your sister does not experience anymore pain. I pray the same for my dad....I feel like maybe we are working to extend his life for 4 months so that we can torture him for 4 months.....I don't see much quality for him now and certainly don't see how he will improve from here....
Hope to hear from you and would appreciate any advice on when and how to approach the subject of hospice, I don't think it's far away
