Angie Daughter of Bill Posted March 2, 2005 Share Posted March 2, 2005 Hello gang! I have tried to respond to several posts over the past couple of weeks but there seems to be a problem. When I hit "post a response", it takes me back to the main page of the web site. I did manage to post to Ry once today. I have no problem starting a new thread, it's just replying to posts. hmmmmmmmmm Quick update on Dad..........Dad was on Alimta.......not working so we threw in Gemzar with the Alimta. We haven't had any scans yet to find out if it is working, but I don't think it is. There are too many new symptoms. Dad's voice is very low and scratchy right now. I believe that one of the tumors is pressing on his trachea. Dad woke up this morning and the left side of his lips and a bit of his left jaw is numb. I'm assuming that the tumor is pressing on a nerve. I wanted to call the oncologist but Dad says that we will wait until Friday when we are scheduled to see the doctor. Also, the last couple of days his shortness of breath is much worse. He has oxygen at home but has been using it sporadically.......just when he needs it. The last two days he has had to use the oxygen almost 24/7. Right now Dad is still able to walk around (just in the house and from the car to the dr.'s office). He also still cares for his hygiene needs, etc. He is slowing down considerably and it is happening fast. I am so scared. Dad is talking about how he probably won't be walking for much longer, etc. It just breaks my heart. Please keep my Dad in your prayers. Also, please say a few prayers for me. I have to have surgery on my foot on March 9th. I have a heel spur and I also have compression of a nerve in my foot. It is PAINFUL! This is the WORST time possible for me to have surgery, but I have been putting it off for more than six months. I am now at the point where I can barely stand to walk on my foot. Lots of stuff going on here on the farm. (right now there is a 24 hour old baby goat in my bath tub..........that's a whole 'nother story!!! ) I think of you all daily and I have been reading posts, but as I said, I haven't been able to respond. I will e-mail Rick about my problem. Love you all!!!!!!!!!!!! In my thoughts and prayers~~~ Angie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
