My 85 year old dad just lost his wife of 59 years Dec. 2nd 2013.
He has gone through chemo to fight Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. He survived.
He has fought prostate cancer. He survived.
About 2 weeks ago we noticed that he was having some memory problems. This seemed to get worse the next week. So on Sat. 3/22/14 we took him to the hospital. At first they thought it was a viral infection because of the results of a spinal tap. However, the MRI showed something else. They are calling it a GBM Tumor.
Not knowing much about this tumor I did a quick google search and what I found scared the crap out of me. We are still in the early stages of diagsosing this. The next step being a biopsy.
Right now I am not sure what to do, how I should talk to him or the doctors to make the right descisions. He is still having memory problems.
Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated.
