Update December 17, 2009 My Dad lost his battle with cancer last night and has moved on to a better place. Please remember my family during this terrible sad time, we crave all well wishes, happy thoughts and prayers....
Update October 26 My dad is still in the hospital, his hemoglobin has been too low to move him and he is sunning a low grade fever. He is not talking very much any more, we wonder if it is because he is in so much pain now... they are trying different pain medicines to get him some comfort. He is also not eating very much any more, a few bites of a pudding or apple sauce, very worrisome. Please continue to pray! Update October 22nd tomorrow my dad will be moved to a nursing home to begin rehabilitation, he is not happy at all but he is not mobile enough to go home, he has not improved at all since Sunday. Update October 20th my dad woke during the night and forgot where he was, tried to get up and fell out of the hospital bed. he is very sore, possible broken ribs. They now have him attached to an alarm. Update October 18th My dad has suffered from a pretty severe stroke he is completely paralyzed on his entire left side, he has been admitted to the hospital to run further tests. A good note him having the stroke we were worried that the cancer had spread to his brain but it has not. Update October 11, 2009 my Father collapsed and was very disoriented, unable to walk or know anyone. He was admitted to the hospital and given a blood transfusion due to low blood count, running a fever so they started him on an antibiotic, his pain (which he had always described as a dull ache) now requires morphine...He was given more blood Monday and is till in the hospital, he is having some lucid moments now but he is still not in his right mind. The doctors are trying to figure out if the cancer has spread to his brain or what is going on, right now we have no answers. Update October 5,2009 will be home in a week or two. Wish things were better here! My Dad is not doing well at all, his chemo has stalled the growth of his tumors but none have shrunk or gone away. In addition to all the normal side effects of cancer and chemo treatments he is suffering from a blocked artery in his neck which is causing him to be off balance. Paralysis has struck him on one side but tests show no reason for it! He says his goal is to see the first bowl game of 2010, I tell him that is not good enough, he needs to shoot for my two year olds high school graduation or better! !! Please continue to pray for my Dad!! Update September 24,2009 Leaving tomorrow for Pa. I will be gone for a while. I will try to check in as I can. Take care everyone! Update July 30, 2009 My dad is undergoing weekly chemo treatments of two different IV mediactions, then the other four weekdays he gets a shot to help boost his immunity. He has had some bad side effects and is still losing weight. They finally found a nausea medicine that helps, that is a very good thing he was so sick... He is having a lot of trouble with numbness that will hopefully stop when the treatments stop. He has started stuttering and they are not sure why... He is supposed to have an ultrasound done Aug. 5th to check the size of his tumor, we are all praying that it is shrinking!! Update June 24, 2009 my dad had his first chemo treatments this morning and everything went really well. He says he feels normal, I hope it lasts. He is scheduled to have the treatments every Wednesday for the next 3-4 months depending on how he responds. He is also receiving a shot everyday to boost his immunity. We are hopeful and focusing on the positives!! May 14, 2009 We were told my dad has stage four Esophageal cancer, I am so distressed I don't know where to turn...he recently underwent a test that showed that in addition to the tumor in his esophagus it was found to have spread to other areas of his body. On June 8th they will be placing a stint in his esophogus to keep it from collapsing like it is doing now, causing him to become sick. They are recommending radiation to try and shrink the tumor and have told him he may need a feeding tube. He should be starting chemo soon after...****
St Paul to the Corinthians 13: 4-8 8, 13 Love is patient and kind, it is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited, it is never rude or selfish, it does not take offence, nor is it resentful. Love takes no pleasure in others’ sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end. There are three things that last, faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love.
