So my dad called yesturday a couple of hours after I got the news about my third recurrence. He asked how I was doing so I told him the scan results. Heasked what the doctors plan of attack. I told him that takes time to determine. So he then proceeded to talk about his ddiarrhea from antibiotics he is taking and asked my advice on how to deal with it since he knows that is part of my life. He never asked how my last scan went three months ago. About two months ago he was telling about a spot on his back that he was worried could be melanoma. He is 89 years old and has repeatedly told me he will be happy when he leaves this world.
So then why does he seem more concerned about his own issues which pale in comparison to mine. Am I wrong to feel this way. He was always a good father but I get way more support from the people I work with.
I know that I shouldnt let something so stupid bother me when I am now back in the fight but it is this thing that I cant get out of the back of my mind.
Thank God for all of you who understand and listen. Just tell me am I right or wrong about my feelings.
