shordy Posted June 4, 2003 Share Posted June 4, 2003 Well everyone, I guess they've given up on my Dad. He went for his CT results today and they told him that they've exhausted all of their chemo treatments and he's not responded to any of them. His tumor has grown some and also, there are "a bunch" more spots on his liver too. So, they mentioned pain management and then hospice. Plus they'll give him a pill to try and help his liver, but they said that he has a 1 in 10 chance of it doing any good. He takes 1 pill one day then 2 the next, rotates them like that, they're $1,000 for 15 of them. He's going to try them. So Daddy left the office today with the only outlook of hospice...how sad for us all. I can't imagine what going through his mind right now, and my Stepmom's too. I just hate this for them. I just don't know what to do. A couple weeks ago I had to go through the horrific experience of having to euthanize my 18 year old "baby" canine that is, I've had him since the day he was born. I've cried every day, this is so hard, I miss him so bad, when it rains it just pours! Thanks for listening, Love, Shordy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
