sharyn Posted October 18, 2004 Share Posted October 18, 2004 Hi All, It has been a while since I really took the time to post on here. Things have been hectic and although I have replied to a few posts, I am mostly just a quiet observer at this point. Daddy just finished his brain radiation last Thursday, not WBR, just concentrated radiation to his one met. He did fairly well with the treatment, some fatigue, but nothing unmanageable. He has had to have two blood transfusions in the past two weeks due to a combination of his problems.... radiation, possible small bleeds in the brain, small bleeds in the esophogus etc. God Bless him he is taking it all in stride. He goes tomorrow for a CBC and if all looks good, he will begin his Chemo regiman again for the esophogus cancer (CPT11 and cisplatnim). He has gained back 5 pounds so I am delighted with that as is Mommy. These latest setbacks have definetely taken their toll on him, but, he refuses to give up and he insists he has "two years left in him". We are taking things day to day and just thanking God for everyday that he is still strong enough to get out of bed and have some quality of life. I had sugery myself two weeks ago, so it was tough not being able to be there for him and Mom for a week or so, but they managed well ( i guess I am not indispensible??!!) I think of you all daily and I would appreciate if you could remember Daddy in your prayers.... Thanks All. Love, Sharon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
