Thank you so much.... your words mean a lot to me. I have so much support from you guys,just reading your warm replies, thank you to all of you.
Paula, when you tell what you dad had to eat today- it breaks my heart! I know what you mean. Watch your loved one going down- and all the sudden - he (she) had a good meal!!!!! It makes us sooo happy!
Paula, enjoy every moment with your dad, every minute! That's what I try to do!
My husband lost 40 pounds since July 4th. Being healthy man, 210 lb- went down so fast!
I will pray for your dad, as I always pray for my hubby.
He is on carboplatin and etoposide too. This type of chemo they use for small cell lung cancer too.... And my husband has hormones too.
All I found online- that he might have not even a year to live. I cry and cry and cry- but not in front of him. Thanks God, he is not computer guy and ,probably, don't do as much research as I do... Well may be he knows too and just not to show it to me. What's a wonderful man he is! Cares about me even being so ill!
We live in small town, North Carolina, doctors are good, but it's not top line cancer center. We, however , get in touch with two top cancer centers in USA, and two doctors we talked to, agreed with treatment protocol. My husband is old school guy and he didn't want to go to trials. We(well, I) found one in USA for small cell prostate cancer- Aurora inhibitor, second phase and stats is not very encouriging.
Type of cancer your dad and my hubby have----- rare!!!!!! I wish I could find the cure. All my research online----- no luck.
Will have his second round of chemo Nov.11th. and radiation after that. His first chemo was relatively good, he is having some neuropathy, which he had before the treatment any way. That's when his primary care doc and his team treated him with neurological disorder, which made his half - disabled, he is walking with walker now. It makes me soo mad! This is America, dude! Not third world country, where they don't have good doctors. What did you do to him???!!!!
He was so independent, was running his own business and now----- he is my baby, I help him bath, dress, cary him around. Hard on me but ten times harder on him. My poor husband, he is great man, his spirit is up, and he is going to beat the cancer!
Hey guys, sorry if my English too American for your British:))) That's all I know. I am Russian girl, lucky enough to meet this wonderful American man, fall in love, marry, learn American English---- and ---- boom, that beast hit him---- CANCER! I had four wonderful years with him! And love him so much. I just don't know how to help him.
Let's stay strong, Paula. Pray for our loved ones.
And thank you so much for supporting me.
I don't have much help, even though my husband's sons live next door- they have they own lifes, young boys, just got married, I understand- but----------- IT's YOUR FATHER!!!! The best father I've ever seen, especially comparing to my ex and my own father, he deserves better for all he did for them. WELL, God will judge them, not me.
Thank you guys! All I need just warm words and some support.
