    just diagnosed, we see oncologist today.

    Decision Point

    His pulmonologist did not seem to have hope that treatment will work & feels chemotherapy or radiation will be too hard on him. I don't want him to suffer, just pass peacefully if possible.

    Long-term catheter

    Procedure or Surgery

    Dad had a lung cath inserted to drain the fluid. It has been drained 3x within 6 days, each time getting a liter of fluid. This concerns me. Hopefully the chemo will help reduce that.

    Went as Expected: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree

    Oh No

    My sweet father lost his fight early Tuesday March 12. I'm thankful he did not suffer longer. I'm glad I had this forum in which to find comfort & I pray for a cure soon.
