    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    6 treatments in the first round. Improvement everywhere but the liver 1/2 way through. So disappointed! Lots of pain in his right side. Last treatment on 11/06/12. Pet scan on12/05 and results on 12/06. Praying for a miracle!

    Eating problems (anorexia)

    Side Effects

    No anorexia but he doesn't want to eat healthy. He says that green vegetables make him queasy. Doesn't seem to have issues with cake, cookies, ice cream, pizza, and all things fried. :-)

    Lost loved one


    I'm devastated to announce that I lost my father to lung cancer on Wednesday, May 29. I miss him terribly. I wish you all the best of luck and many prayers. As supportive as you all are, I pray that I never have to come back here again.
