Thank you for letting us know how your dad is doing. Yes he is still going strong and I can so picture him driving his fourwheeler, what a great image that is! I hope that his stent replacement goes well.
My best wishes to you and your dad,

Dear sistercorb, that is great news. Somehow I can just picture him doing everything you talk about and I hope it all continues for him. He sure has a wonderful mind of his own, Bless him !April 25, 2011 at 11:28 am #42814
i havent forgotten you. update on dad. he is still going strong. he has to have another stent replacement, but so far so good. he still lives by hisself and doing everyday stuff. a little weak now and then. its been since last sept. that they said he had a month to live. the cancer is taking over his liver and stomach area, but to see him you wont think so. God has really blessed us. he is in little pain. rides his fourwheeler and doing what he wants. he is one tough birdFebruary 22, 2011 at 1:36 pm #42813
You dad sounds almost super human! Wow. You are so right, there probably is a very good reason he is hangin here but only he knows that reason. I hope he continues to be stubborn and sassy as he truly climbs his own mountain and makes it to the top every time.February 22, 2011 at 10:38 am #42812
dear friends, dad is still kicking(as he says) He had to go to the hospital. He has started to hurt a little more. Just the cancer pain. Other than that hes doing fine. his stent is doing good(he only has 1 working. the other one is blocked by a tumor.) liver 1.5. very good. Dad is such a strong man. there has to be a reason , hes still going. I thank all who has prayed for him.January 31, 2011 at 2:04 pm #42811
Wow! Good to hear your news, Sistercorb. Sending you best wishes that Dad continues walking along this path.January 31, 2011 at 12:21 pm #42810
update on Dad he is still going strong. he isnt yellow now. he still looks bad but he is still making it. he is a walking marvel. still lives by hisself , him and his dogs. no hospice yet just his meds. many a prayers has been answered. thank u allJanuary 9, 2011 at 9:25 pm #42809andieParticipant
I’m sorry to hear your Dad has had an accident but like you say ‘everything happens for a reason’ and now his stents have been sorted, which will help your Dad so much.
Like your Dad, mine has been given 3-4 months but this was in September and he is still putting up a very good fight. His stents are blocked by his tumor so he has an external drain which helps. Last week we had a scare when Dad was very breathless and his drain leaked. Since then it has been flushed and his breathing and mood are 100% better.
I’m praying our Dads prove the doctors wrong in there time limits. Enjoy each day and remember miracle do happen.
Love and hugs

Dear Sistercorb, that is really some Bad New/Good News story! If dad is willing, you know you can have the ONC call in Hospice now to help him. Wishing you and your dad the best.January 9, 2011 at 12:40 pm #42807
bad news, good news . i beieve everything happens for a reason. dad was in a bad car accident. he broke 7 ribs. drs said his bones were so thin u could see thru them. that the bad news. good news, since he was in the hospial the drs seen how yellow he was and how high his liver count was(14.7) they done the stent surgery. both stents were completely blocked. they unblocked one side. the other side the klatskin had completely block. cant get that one in. one unblocked stent is better than no blocked stent. if the cc dont get him, he hAS aleast another 2 to 4 months here on earth. his liver cout is now 11. micrales happens.January 3, 2011 at 5:26 pm #42806joanieMember
this sounds exactly like my mom who passed Nov 12 after being diagnosed on Oct 6th, 2010. I hope you are doing ok …I know how overwhelming and scary it is. I hope hospice was able to help you with their support team of experts. God bless you and your family.January 2, 2011 at 2:24 am #42805
