    Katie; I remember feeling exactly the same way after my dad passed away. For the longest time, everything I did, everywhere I went, everyone I saw, there was always something there that reminded me of my dad. There were times when I could swear I saw him on the street or in stores but obviously it was always someone that looked like him. I was just numb & dazed for the longest time, it always amazed me how the rest of the world could just keep going on around me after he died, I'm not sure what I expected to happen but it definitly wasn't that. I was in my own world for the longest ti

    Oh Katie, I am so so very sorry. My thoughts & prayers are with you and your family. I'm just totally speechless right now, please forgive me. Chris
  4. Sounds like a great plan to me!! So happy to hear the good news. Keep up the great work David!! Chris
  5. Wishing you luck!!!!! Although we know it has nothing to do with luck, but strength & determination, & thats something you have alot of!!!Go kick butt, I'll be thinking about you!!!!!!YOU DA MAN DAVID P!!!!!
  6. Getting recharged is probably just what your Dad needs. Chemo & radiation on their own are bad enough let alone together, they can probably really run you down. I'm sure after your Dad is recharged he'll get back up, brush off his knees & jump back in the fight with both feet again...I know you all will, this is just a little set back. Hang in there kiddo!! Chris
  7. Katie; First off hang in there & keep your chin up.....I'm just thinking that going through one of the two treatments, be it chemo or radiation is hard enough on the body so to go through both treatments at once is like a double whammy, it might just take your dad a little longer to come back around with having both treatments at once. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but it's just a thought. Take care & hang tough. Chris
  8. Actually yes she did have a CT scan, thats what I meant by "he said everything looked good", meaning results, test, reports etc...Thanks for your concern though, it is well taken & appreciated. ********************************************************* AN AFTER THOUGHT: After looking over my original post it almost appears to me like I was "gloating", for lack of a better word. I apologize if that's the way it appears because that was never ever my intent. It's just nice to finally receive some good news after these last few months, especially this month alot of other things happened..
  9. THANK GOD!!!! I just talked to my Mom, she went for a check up with her onc, he said everything looks good, chest sounds clear & she goes back again in a couple of months for a check up.....He did give her something to take for her low energy level thats she's been having lately.....She sounded so good, so relieved on the phone, I just wish I could've been there with her(My other 3 sisters went with her, I leave for holidays Friday so needless to say I'm stuck at work trying to get everything done)...What a big relief, it just felt so good to hear some happiness in her voice again, just l
  10. Cathy; I am so deeply saddened to hear of the loss of your father. Try and take comfort knowing that he is no longer suffering and in pain. Hold your memories of your father close to your heart and he will always be with you. May you and your family find peace and comfort at this difficult time. Chris
  11. Shelly; I am so very very sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Like the others, I am also at a loss for words. How I truly HATE this damned disease!!! Please take care Chris

  14. Great news about your dad Katie!!!!I'm so happy for you & yours....Keep up the excellent fight!
  15. Consider it done! What you said about way back when your dad was first diagnosed got me thinking....It's unbelievable how ones life can be changed so dramatically & turned upside down in a matter of a day, or even just a few hours. I don't think I ever would have believed it had it not happened. I must have been pretty naive thinking it couldn't happen again after I lost my dad. Not in a million years did I ever think it could happen to my mom as well. I remember you mentioned it once before Katie, about how life was before diagnosis.....the good old days.
