I have been MIA the past week and a half or so, just wanted to pop in and check on everyone and wish you all well... it's been crazy trying to balance school, help dad, getting my parents ready to move, work, and now my brother in law fell from a ladder last Friday breaking his rib and banging himself up pretty badly. My favorite aunt is in the hospital with what they think is congestive heart failure- hopefully can be treated with diuretics. So yeah, please continue keeping us in your prayers! I know I requested a prayer for a friend who was suffering from breast cancer who was going to be on chemo for the rest of her life, she is now in the hospital with liver complications. Please keep her in prayers too!
Dad is still about the same. He has had a little more energy- but I think he's pushing himself to stay active. Minimal drinking by mouth, still feeding through his PEG. I've seen him smile a little more lately, stopped by last nite and we watched tv and laughed some. Can't wait til he can get the PEG out, but I think its still going to be awhile :( I know youall said it would take time to heal, but I keep expecting him to do it quicker. Doc says blood and everything looks good so I'm glad for that! Thank God! What makes me leary though is after his next scan, his oncologist said if he feels it is necessary he may decide to give dad 2 more chemo treatments w/ a different type of med (not cistiplan). WHy would he even say that right now? It worries me... Still praying that dad recovers soon and things start looking up. My family has had way too much going on right now.
On the other hand, I hope everyone is doing well and hearing good news! I did read posts, but didn't have time to reply. I wanted to reply on T's post about health anxiety bc I suffer from gen. anxiety and panic attacks, maybe thought I could put some of it into perspective. Hope to reply on that one soon!
Prayers and love,
p.s. I graduate with my bachelors this November! I can't wait- sorry I had to add this. I've just worked way too hard. :)
