My dad went to the oncologist today. He has less than six months without chemo and 6-9 months with chemo. My sister was too busy shopping to go to the doctor with him.

What happened to my first post?????

Anyway - is it a hard/rough chemo?? Chemo's changed so much in the past few years; it's not always like you see in the movies, TV, etc. Found that out w/ my mohter's cancer and goign to the cnacer center w/ her. If it's not bad (no vomiting, etc), it might not hurt to at least try one round. However, quality of life is important.

Sorry your sister's being a butthead. (((hugs))) to you!

That's awful news. He was probably very thankful to have you there with him.

I will pray for your family at this time.
This brings back memories of hearing similar diagnosis for my dad.
We wish we could have made contact with Hospice sooner but as soon as we did they were so helpful in making my dad's life my comfortable and helping us family members care for him and process what was happening...
