    Oh No

    its was july of 2010 my papaw wasn't feel well. He was having a hard time driving and all he did was sleep. we had no idea what was going on one day he took his blood sruarg and it was so high that it wouldn't even read on the motor. So he went to the walk in clinic and everything seemed to go down hill from there. they ran test and found a spot in his right lung. the doc went in and took a piece to find out what is was. when the results finally come back my family was devasted. we didnt know what to do. or what was going to happen. In August the treatment started. raydation and cemo. we shortly found out his body couldn't handle the cemo. so raydation was all we had. I dont remember how long he did that. The doc tried surgury but it was to late it had started to spread. he said more radation and see how that goes. in dec of 2010 we are told it was dead. the happiest day of our lives. In march of 2011 he went back for a check up and it hadn't died. at this point we were told he had 6 months to live. May 26, 2011 at 9:ooa.m we lost my papaw to lung cancer.
