Next Step

Well, we had a consultation today with a radiation Oncologist. He seemed somewhat pleased that Dad has no pain (we are pleased about that too!). He mentioned that when there is cancer in a "support bone" namely, his spine, there is a concern because if the cancer were to weaken the bone there could be a lot of pain and if it goes all the way to the spinal cord then there's a chance of paralysis. His advice to us was to get an mri done so they can see what the cancer is doing...so...we will wait for a mri appointment. He also wants us to see a Chemo Oncologist, so we will do that too. So far, that is it...thank you for your prayers!!!!

With Valentine's Day quickly aproaching, I remembered today how my dear husband would, almost every year, have a dozen roses delivered to my office. There was one year that I told him roses were too expensive and that I would be happy with carnations...they last longer and it was the thought that counted after all! The next year he DID save money...he was the delivery boy and he got the vase from home!!!! The flowers were still roses, however.....and somehow the thought counted sooooo much more!!!!!

Well, not too much new information on Dad. He seems to be feeling ok and mom says he's eating and sleeping good...I'm thankful!! We have an appointment on the 15th with the Oncologist, we will know more about future treatments etc after that.

Thanks you sooooo much for your prayers...God's blessings!!!

Hello all,

It's been quite a while since I've updated this. Now I have decided to use it to place updates on my Dad. 8 years ago in 2002 he was diagnosed with prostate cancer...since then he has been getting chemo shots every 3 months along with different meds.  Last week or the week before his doctor said he needed a bone scan...well, we received the results yesterday and his prostate cancer has spread to his bones...into the spine, pelvis area and rib.  They are recommending chemo as our next step.  Well, pretty much all who read this know that I've been at this place before...just a different important man in my life.  Please pray that the chemo side affects are mild and that pain is minimal...in a nutshell...may God have mercy on my dear father and give him peace.  Thank you for once again tuning in to this blog.

God bless you all!!!!!!
