I spoke with my brother's oncologist yesterday. She said she discussed my brother's condition with the liver specialist. She doesn't think my brother is a good candidate for the chemo-embolization because of his condition, but the liver specialist would like to see him anyway, look at all his charts/tests, check him out and make a definite conclusion then. I'm not sure if he should go to the appointment and hear her out or not bother and just keep moving on. I don't want him to get his hopes up, but then I don't want to miss the chance, even if it's only a slight chance. I am wondering if the specialist doesn't want to bother doing it because he has the lung nodules. I'm not sure what we should do. My brother is guided by what I think and I honestly don't know what to tell him. He has clotting issues, heart and blood pressure issues and had a really hard time at the end of last year with several hospitalizations within a couple of months. I HATE THIS DISEASE!!!!
He is feeling pretty well, but he is also on a low dose of chemo because of the side effects. My brother and dad have settled in pretty well to their new apartment. They are only 5 minutes from all their doctors, which is awesome! I went there today to give them lessons on how to use the washer/dryer. LOL! They're 2 bachelors trying to figure out how to do wash, it's too funny!
Good wishes to all of you.
PS A little good news: my daughter and son-in-law are expecting a baby in March! This will be our 2nd grandchild and we are feeling blessed! We have a granddaughter from our son and DIL. She is the joy of our lives! :)
