Guest kate218 Posted March 3, 2004 Share Posted March 3, 2004 HI, sorry I'm not on so much. It doesn't always help to read some of the stories. My Dad is very weak. He was in the hospital for over a week because he couldn't urinate due to medications. Finally that is o.k. but his strength in his legs is pretty bad. He is using a walker now and it bugs him to no end. The Dr's won't give him chemo until he can walk on his own. The taxol has been working well, keeping it from growing and the Dr. was pleased that it has worked this long for him. I'm going to see him tomorrow and I need some words of encouragement for him. Some proof that even though he doesn't want to eat and that he is tired, that he can get stronger again. He is a bit down because the Dr. told him that most people in his situation have not made it this far and he is lucky that the Taxol has been working for so long. This is the first time ever, that his Dr. has ever even eluded to something like that. He never gave a time reference or anything like that. I think he was trying to keep him positive, but I'm not sure. I also need your prayers. I just can't lose him yet. I'm afraid my 4 year old won't remember him. This is such an evil disease ane he so does not deserve it. People keep telling me that no one deserves it and I say I can think of a few people in jail that deserve this. Not my Dad. Please pray hard that he is a miracle man. Thanks, Kate Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
