Tracy Posted July 16, 2003 Share Posted July 16, 2003 Just a quick update.... Dad had his first day of treatment today. He started off by having chemo early this morning and as soon as he finished that he was off to radiation. Handled it like a trooper, even though he was in discomfort during radiation having to keep his arms lifted. So far he says he feels normal, came home and had a big lunch of soup and crackers and snacked throughout the day, always drinking his water (not too happy about having to drink that much h2o!!), and had a good sized normal dinner of meat and potatoes ( us Irish folk love our potatoes!!!). My sister and I (along with the baby) went over to check on our parents and both of their spirits were way up...I think starting treatment has done wonders for them both. Still no word on the brainscan though, hopefully wont have to wait much longer for that. Tomorrow is day two of a three day/week chemo and five day/week radiation. When I left I told my dad to sit back and relax and visualize the chemo and rad killing those dang cancer cells like an old "Batman" episode...Bam! Boom! Bang! Pow! etc...he laughed!!! Hoping the days continue like this, but if they dont we are well stocked on popsicles, juice, jell-o....you name it we got it! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
