Angie Daughter of Bill Posted September 20, 2004 Share Posted September 20, 2004 Well, gang, I have been having trouble connecting and staying connected to the internet. For some reason, I was able to connect this morning. ??? (I hope it doesn't kick me off before I can finish this post) I received a call from TeeTaa yesterday checking on me and Dad. (thank you for that. ) TeeTaa always seems to just "know" when I need a friend to talk to. Anywho.......Dad is going for a CT of the chest in the morning. This CT is EXTREMELY important in my eyes. It will determine if the Iressa has been working. On one hand I think it is working. The pain that Dad had in his shoulder is almost gone. It is much milder now and he is handling it without pain meds. On the other hand, I am scared absolutely to death. It seems that Dad's cough is MUCH WORSE. (just in the past week) He has been taking a codeine cough syrup round the clock.............as opposed to just one dose every few days. I also noticed yesterday that he was kind of "wheezy". (I'm sure that's not a real word ) He also gets short of breath a bit easier. To top it off, he told me last night that his back was hurting. (mets to T5, 8, and 12) Please, say a prayer for my Dad, Billy. I could also use a few prayers right now. Prayers of strength. I'm not feeling very strong right now. I am so sad to return to the board and see that we have lost Dave S., Renee's husband, Phyllis..........and Cat.........I don't really understand her post. I wish that Cat would head to Alabama instead of where she is heading. I would certainly do everything I could to help her. I have a rent house that is at the end of my driveway and it is empty right now. I could let Cat stay there. My husband says that I can't save the world, but I say I can save some. I apologize for being such a downer this morning. I am getting sick with a cold or bronchitis. Put all the bad news AND Dad's scans coming up tomorrow........I'm just a party pooper today. I think I will head over to the Just for Laughs forum and see how the ladies have been doing while I've been away. All of those folks always seem to cheer me up. Love to all!! In my thoughts and prayers~~~ Angie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
