ngc4au Posted February 23, 2017 Share Posted February 23, 2017 Update on my father...yesterday (Feb. 21) was his last chemo treatment with 7 radiation treatments to go!!! I heard a recording of the radiation oncologist meeting and he said his lungs sounded clear (fingers crossed)!! When he got home he ATE!!! He has been unable to eat very much at all...he kept a small glass of baking soda water and took tiny sips to eat any food. His follow up CT scan is scheduled for April 3rd and I am praying for NED!!! He was not a candidate for surgery, so, I know that is probably our best hope and it is mine. I haven't seen my father in at least two weeks. I am a guidance counselor with a 9 year old and the FLU is terrible here. We are both (me and son) terrified of bringing a germ to him. I am hoping we will get to see him this weekend. My sons has a runny nose and slight cough...so, we may wait a few more days. It is so difficult. I am so nervous and optimistic about him feeling better. He was so physically strong and enjoying working outside before. My mother said yesterday it will just make her day if he feels like going outside and sitting on the porch. It is truly the little things. Praying for NED!!!
