Hi - glad to hear that your dad is feeling better and is able to walk. Hopefully the results of the other tests will be OK. Good luck.

Thanks! Dad had carotid studies, MRI &MRA today, waiting for MRI results but the others came back negative for a major bleed. So far good news, he was walking today with a slight lean to the right. He has no more dizziness, double vision, and he was coherent. They might send him home tomorrow if he continues to improve.

I am really sorry to hear about your dad. Hopefully he can come back from the stroke and not have too many risidual effects. My dh had a major stroke in Nov 2002. He was in hospital for three months. He recovered but it left his whole left side weak and it also affected his right eye and his short term memory.

You and your dad are in my prayers

Hi everyone,
It' been a tough few weeks. Dad's scan showed the nodules in his lung have increased in size, so repeat in May. Last night while getting ready for a family dinner at my sisters house (with my 2 kids and my sis 3 kids) dad had a stroke and is in intensive care.

Good morning everyone

SWEETMISERY, praying for your dad and hope for a speedy recovery. I just found out that my dh's lung cancer is spreading by his lymph nodes. His cancer is terminal (no treatment possible due to age and secondary health problems. So far the cancer is slow to grow (he was diagnoses three years ago in June). He is on painkillers to ease the pain and he is relatively comfortable for the time being.

Good luck on Friday

Dianne

My Dad died from pancreatic cancer in 1983 and my sister died in 2005 from uterine cancer. Another sister and my only brother are cancer survivors. It is a tough road but there is hope!

Hi All! Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Amy, 36 and a single mom of a 19 yr old daughter and a 16 yr old son. My father was diagnosed with throat & larynx cancer on May 13- exactly 1 yr after his oldest brother died of pancreatic cancer. He had to have a tracheotomy the night we took him to the hospital because the tumor in his throat obstructed his breathing. He has since had his voice box removed and a throat reconstruction surgery. He went through chemo & radiation 5 days a week from August-October. I wouldn't wish that on anyone- the treatment most days was worse than dealing with the cancer itself. He had an electrolarynx inserted in January, and continues to show improvement. Hopefully we get more good news on Friday.
