Just wondering about your dad and you?
Please let us know what the Doc says... constantly thinking and praying for your dad and you! (((HUGS)))
Hello Daddy's girl,
I will be looking for your post about your dad. I think of you as the daughter all
parent's would love to have.
hugs and prayers your way. Love Maggie
Thinking about you here also.
Still praying for you guys...please let us know how he and you are doing?
Thank you everyone... Not sure yet... Someone we knew the other day said its cancer, take care of him, no biopsies leave him alone, continue antibiotics, if in pain provide pain meds, if out of breath get help for that... I broke down that day it was Friday... I'm praying and hoping from God to help us out and give us all more life to enjoy together... My Dad says I don't think it's cancer one doc attending says if cancer nothing we can do no purpiose for biopsy we'll just try to make you comfortable... He also did add he didn't think cancer. I spoke to another pulmonary that came in today about the bilateral hillar lymph nodes enlarging...she said sometime inflammation can do that... He had a repeat of X-ray today from ER X-ray comparison which was a week ago yesterday and didn't see doc yet but asked nurse if she read it correctly they wrote there was no change and if there is anything else there she forgot to tell me that I wouldn't know... Attendant doc at stem cell also ordered immunoglobulin antibodies in his blood test and got results of that from nurse
IgG 634 normal 694-1618
IgA 123 normal 68-378
IgM 15 normal 46-304
I read a lot about these but couldn't make too much sense with the situation...
Also they ordered another ct for Wednesday... I hope those nodes nodules other stuff are much better
Still he has no fever...got annoying cough couple nights ago still lingering around....
Need all the prayers, pls pray like its your dad....
Prayers to all and appreciate everything... I'm sorry I was shattered couldn't think of,anything
I am sure that I am not alone when I say that I pray for your dad every night. I am so sorry that you are going through this and all the scariness that comes with it. I will pray that this is not the return of cancer rather a small bump in the road. You are such a great daughter and he is so blessed to have you by his side. When will you have more definite answers?
Thank you Mike. Makes my cry to hear such things from all of you. It's odd how nurses or cleaning ladies ask are you tired of here or it's so hard not to know when you're leaving etc, they don't realize I wouldn't mind being here for a yr non stop I just want my dad to be better and for us to get good results... The attending doc leaves tomorrow, he ordered immuglobulin transfusion which Dad is getting right now as we speak because he was low... He ordered ctscan for tomorrow morning at 6am. I guess when he comes in early morning he wants to look at the scans before the report is out... He said if no improvement on ctscan, then we'll go for biopsy... Please God let things get better... Thank you all for the prayers... We're all so worried and scared...
Stuped Iphone ... For the multiple posts!
Hang in there sweetie...this has been a rough road for your dad and you! I pray for your dad everyday that its not cancer and for him to just get better! Will be waiting for the results with you...sending prayers and positive thoughts your way! (((hugs)))
Hello dadysgirl, I am also a dadysgirl. My dad got diagnosed with diffuse large b cell non hodgkins lymphoma almost exactly a year ago. Stage 3 progressing to 4. It was shocking and devastating. I am extremely close to my parents. I talk to them and see them everyday. I was scared to death. I prayed to the Lord that he wouldn't give me more than I could handle. Anyway, I put my faith in the Lord and he's amazing. My dad went through 6 treatments of rchop and after the 3rd treatment it went away, but unfortunately it immediately came back. Then he had 3 rice treatments and that didn't work at all. They did a stem cell treatment on his 58th birthday (April 11th). That was hard on him. He lost 40 lbs after it. Extremely tired and he developed a bad cough. He said it fells like there is a 30lb weight on his chest. He had a pet scan in June and they said that the cancer was gone from his waist down, but had it in his chest. They sent him to a radiologist and they said they couldn't do anything for him. It was too close to his heart and lungs. Doctors didn't understand why the stuff in his chest wasn't responding to chemo. They ordered a biopsy a week ago and yesterday we got the amazing news that what is in his chest is called granuloma and it is not cancerous. Granuloma is like an infection in the lungs causing swelling. They still have to treat it and they still want to do another stem cell transplant using his sister as a donor to make sure the cancer doesn't come back. I will be praying for you. Let me know if you have any questions.
Your dad probably got the results by now. I am just hoping the news is good. I will
look for your post.
Considering everything you've gone through I thank you for keeping us updated.
All my love and blessings Love Maggie
thank you all
Dad will have bronchroscopy tomorrow today that is thursday for lung tissue biyopsy as well as lymph node biopsy.. things are just gettting worse and worse with each ctscan... 3 ctscan and 2 xrays within 10 days.. when i talk to the lung doc and just ask questions after questions even though they are supposedly going in there to look for any infections.. they've been treating him with bcterial infection, possibly there is fungal, viral or inflammation from chemo but when i ask them questions things boil down to lymphoma as they cant give an answer that makes sense and they say no, if it was infection that he is not getting treated for he'd be getting worse and should be very sick... he is not... if its inflammation like chemo toxicity i asked what about lymph nodes enlarging she said nooo then of course lymphoma... it's very scary and i asked the np at stem cell unit she's been there since they have opened and i asked her if she has seen anyone like my dad she said no... i hope broncroscopy goes without any further complications and i truly hope the cancer is not back... and hope whatever it is it can be treatable... they were saying the leasions are getting larger and the lymph nodes as well i asked any other lymph nodes involved besides the hillar and she said yes the ones near i guess she mean esophagus or trachea or something like that... i'm just so scared... dad has been trying so hard and it just hurts so much... he never had a break and we went into sct so scared and worried and got through it and he tried so hard to get through it he gave it all he had i really don't want cancer to be back... i want him to be happy and i want him to be around .. i'm sorry to everyone for always writing negative things .. on top of it i got some bug and cant go into sct unit anymore can't be next to him 24/7 lost about 15 lbs just recently and i think my body just took whatever was around.. its ok i just wish i could be next to him as i was.. i'm trying to hang around the waiting room area so i can still be close by... i hope my dad will be okay and i hope we will have good outcome from all this and go back home together happy...
Had broncroscopy... Results should be in by tom. Initial lymph biopsy said atypical so something is wrong the guy that helped with biopsy said could be cancer or infection... They also took multiple lung tissue and washed the lungs... I just hope and pray it is not cancer or anything really bad... Even if it is something long term treatment hospital setting I'm ok with that I just want my da to be ok so badly i wouldn't mind living in the waiting room for yrs just as long as he is with us and he is ok... I hope God will make father better and will give us good news ...
I am sending nothing but positive thoughts and prayers to your father and you. I pray that this is just an infection and with medical treatment it will be a thing of the past. I uplift your dad to the Heavenly Father that he may heal and comfort him in this time of turmoil. Your devotion to your father is inspiring on so many levels. You are such a great daughter and he is blessed to have you in his corner. Your dad is constantly in my prayers. Please let us know the outcome of the tests. Until then, please dont lose the faith.
you're going on my reiki list.
hang in there!
Praying for your father. My heart aches for you....your such a caring loving daughter! Please take care of you too. My prayers are with you daily. Love...Sue

Only weeks left bd news doc skied if want to go home or stay nothing they can do
Im a little confused by the post, are you saying that your dad only has weeks left??? I pray that I am reading this wrong. I am praying for you and your dad
Yes few woks left nothing can be done. Everyone just pray
I was hoping the post was a text mistake. I am speechless at your news.
I am so very, very sorry. After all your dad and you have been through, to receive
this response from the doctor's is horrible.
I am sorry for your pain along with your family. I will pray for your dad so very
All my love Maggie

I am so sorry to hear this sad news concerning your dear father. No words can take away the pain you are feeling, so I will say prayers for a miracle and keep hope alive from my end. You have been as diligent as possible and your father I'm sure, is so proud to have a daughter such as you. God bless you and your family. We are always here for you.
Much love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)
I'm Afraid we're gonna loose my dad
I am so sorry to hear the news. My father passes away from Leukemia and its still painful today. Its a pain that never really goes away you only learn to live with it. I am so sorry that you are going through this with your family. I am going to continue to pray and keep the faith in the name of your father. Is he home or did he choose to stay at the hospital. Is there any pain, if so please tell me that they are able to give him meds to alleviate that. Please keep in touch with us as we all have grown to care bout your dad and yourself.
I'm so sorry about this. I'm still keeping up hope though - miracles happen
and they have been seen here.
If he wants to go home, you might want to consider hospice care if you haven't
done so already. From reading so many posts here about hospice, they
can be a godsend during these times. They can be helpful not only to your
Dad but to you and other family members and caregivers.
Keeping you and your Dad in my thoughts and sending you big hugs,
His main issue is breathing he tries so hard he is getting short breath unbearable and I can't believe one of the nurses last night asked him dad speaks English but not best and he said the exact words I can't recall now but like your time is something have u made plans and dad told her I'm not scared of dying I'm here to live the life I have in a healthy way not to lengthen my life and said to her doctors can't know when anyone is going to die and told her maybe she die tonight from car accident... I wasn't here i'm so upset but dad won't even tell us who it is even wine we have most likely guessed that's how nice of a person my dad is please God allow him to be with us more..please it hurts so much u guys...please God...I thought we were loosing him earlier today.. He gets tired of trying to breath he is again out of breath :(((((((((( bye prayers pls like its your own dad pls... Everyone had a dad or mom at one pt or loved onepls pls pls
What were the results? Are they sure that it is not an infection? I'm not sure if you read the previous post, but they told my dad he had cancer in his chest after his stem cell transplant and it wasn't it was an infection called granuloma. It causes him to cough alot and it feels like he has a 30lb weight on his chest. Maybe he needs a second opinion.
Lymphoma back doc said he couldn't believe and I think had it looked at it over and over coughing a lot just getting himself to breathe but doesn't take longmtomget breathless again.. It's so hard I want him to be well so much pls pray like its your dad for him pls
DadysGirl I'm really, really sorry to hear about your dad! My computer is down so haven't been able to get on here that much. I just don't know what to say to you that could make you feel better! The only thing is I will continue to pray for your dad and for you! Again I'm real sorry to hear this awful news! Please if anything changes let us know...take care and sending you lots of warm hugs!
from me and from my friends...
dear daddysgirl i am so sorry to hear you dad is so sick i will be praying for him and you blessings denise
My dad went to the lung specialist today and his infection is called sarcoidosis. It is often mistaken for lymphoma. All the symptoms mimic it. The only way to tell the difference it to take a biopsy of the lymph node. My dad had diffuse large b cell not sure at what point the chemo got rid of it, but doctors think he went through alot of chemo for nothing. I felt the same as you. We just kept getting bad news. They told us the stem cell transplant didn't work. I put my faith in the Lord and prayed. It works. Be dilligent with the doctors to do a biopsy to make sure. Everytime I pray for my dad I will be praying for yours.
They did in lymph nodes and lung
Just wondering on how your dad is doing and if the docs have said anything new? Are things still the same??? Really praying hard for your dad to hear some better news on his condition. Please keep us updated when you get a chance, I've had a hard time getting on because I don't have a computer right now so I'm trying to post using my phone or kindle but is not the same. Always thinking of you and your dad, praying, praying, praying for your dad and you! ((((HUGS))))
Want you to know that I pray daily for your father and your family. Please let us know how he is doing. We are all here for you and I know many of us are praying and hoping for some positive news. Stay strong and praying for Gods blessing for your father
I've been reading the posts about your Dad. I was wondering if there is an update. My prayers goes out to you and your family. Keep praying DadysGirl.
I really getting concerned. I continue to pray for this family but I havent heard anything in a while. Is anyone else aware of how they are doing?
I haven't heard anything from DadysGirl! I'm also very worried for her and her dad!
For DadysGirl, please let us know how you and your dad are doing! Take care
No one can do anything. Has a lot if breathing probs can't write
They think he has day few days started morphine stuff it's killing us all I'm hurting for my dad so much his mind there and knows he Is dying
Im not going to sit here and pretend to know what you are going through. I am so sorry to hear this and my heart goes out to you and your dad especially. I pray that he is comforted and tht the Lord will hold him close at this time. This time has come and as much as you are fearing it Be strong and take courage in the Lord our Christ.
Please know we're thinking of you guys with concern and understanding.
I wish you, your Dad and family peace and comfort at this time.
Really sorry that you, your dad and your whole family is going through this very difficult time. Nobody knows what you are going through but we can relate to some extent. I lost my mom 3 yrs ago and it was the most difficult thing I had to go through. I really wish you and your dad didn't have to go through this, and the only thing that anybody can do is to pray for him. Pray that he is not in to much pain and that he is in peace.
Just know that many people care about you here at the site, and we are with you in this difficult time. Take care sweetie
I am so sorry things didn't improve for your dad. My heart aches for you and your family. Spend as much time as possible with him and tell him how very special he is to you. My prayers are with you dear one. Much love...Sue
