More Info

My mom, aunt, and I just came back from seeing my dad. The good news is that he is feeling alright and is acting like himself again. The bad news is that they found two growths on the left side of the brain and one growth, or white patch, on his liver. My dad had something like that on his liver about ten years ago which they were able to remove. Well it looks like it came back and might've spread to cause those 2 growths on his brain. A biopsy is scheduled for as soon as possible (for his liver) and he might need radiation for those other 2 things.

The docs said that my dad was really lucky. Most people who experience what he did get paralyzed in some parts of their body. Like I had said previously, it was a good thing that it happened at home when all of us were there.

Oh boy I just wish this wasn't happening but for the most part I am doing fine. As you can imagine it's hard to concentrate for school but I'm doing the best that I can. HUGS

Hi Joanna, I know when I got leukemia it was hard on my daughter who was away at college.
Yes, it sure is a blessing that your dad is doing so well. I hope it all gets cleared up soon. I`m glad he has his family with him for support. My prayers are with him and your family.
Hugs,
Penny

I'm so sorry about what's going on with your dad.  When my dad was sick it was so hard on all of us.  But just having you all there for him will make it easier.  Hope they can get that spot on the liver out and that the radiation works.  Praying for ya'll.  GBU, Shelly
