Coming Home!

We are going to get Dad today. He had to stay a little longer this time. He had a really hard time this time. They say he has "Chemo Brain" which isn't fun. He did some things that if he new he did he would crawl in a hole. He doesn't remember doing any of them and we aren't about to tell him. Sometimes you have to keep a secret. He gave the nurses a hard time but the nurses told Sharon that it is very normal behavior in cancer patients that are receiving such a high dose of chemo. We hope that he feels more relaxed when we get him home. He has to get a shot today, then he doesn't go back until Friday for blood work. Please keep them in your thoughts!!

I lived through my mum's cancer, so I know how you feel at this moment in time...my thoughts and prayers are with you and your dad :)

My prayers continue for your dad...having gone through it all with my own dad years ago, I know how chemo can affect their personalities and it certainly isn't their fault when they act so out of character. Thank you so much for your best wishes about my finding out that I will become a grandma...I can't tell you enough how thrilled I am:-) xox

I am glad you know that some secrets must be kept. I hope he continues strong.

This has to be tough on everyone. I hope he continues to do well. I'm keeping him in my thoughts - and you guys too.
