I know, I know... I haven't been much here lately. Actually, I did not write for quite some time... The reason for that is the fact that I needed some time off. Off everything, off cancer and thinking about it, reading about it, writing about it. It affected me so much that I could barely live normal for the past few months. I love my parents and my Dad's desease affected us all. I have my own young family and I just needed some time.
Well, now my Dad's update:
He has some pain in his mouth - on his tongue where the tumour was. The pain is not that strong. He still feels a bit nauseated in the morning and is shaking a bit. Also a bit anxious (taking some meds for that). He is also physically active a bit, but gets tired easily. His voice is hoarse, but a lot better for the past few days.
Just like all of you great and wonderful fighters on this board who try and fight so hard... you all deserve and need that NED word! And not just NED for the first time but for the future!! I feel so sad when I read about recurrances and it scares me, since my Dad is a good candidate for one in the future (multiply lymph nodes, the biggest package was 8 cm big). And he had his nodes enlarged for a year before he was finally diagnosed.
I can only hope and pray to God for a good outcome in the end. Believe me that I'm thinking of all of you everyday and I pray every night for you to get thru this and stay healthy. Thank you all who helped me with your great advice! My mum told me that without this board we would be completelly lost and scared. Now with all this info from you I knew what was going to happen and how to cope with that. Thank you all!!
I'll keep you posted!
