StephanieJane Posted November 20, 2006 Share Posted November 20, 2006 My dad was diagnosed less than two weeks ago with nsclc that has spread into his liver and his adrenal glands. He is only 53 years old and he is the only person in my family that I am close to...and I am trying really hard to be strong, but it is getting tougher and tougher. It seems like every new doctor brings more bad news...and I know the statistics and I know that the odds are against us here. I am trying to be strong. I am trying to remain positive. I am trying. I just can't seem to shake the thought that this might be the last Thanksgiving that we spend with my dad. This might be the last year that my dad gets to watch my daughter open her Christmas gifts. It just seems so unfair. I am just having a really hard time coping with all of this. My dad is just so awesome and such a big part of my life, and the thought of watching the strongest man I know grow weaker and sicker before my eyes is just more than I can bear. I do not want my dad to die. Not like this. We will meet with an oncologist for the first time on Wednesday...the day before Thanksgiving. I am anxious to know what he has to say...but I am also dreading it. If this is my dad's last holiday season, I want it to be a happy one. I just don't know how to make that happen under the circumstances. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
