Thank you everyone. The prayers are definitely needed. I am trying very hard to stay occupied to keep my mind off of things. I just have to try really hard not to get too stressed out. Easier said than done of course! I really worry about my mother. She has been amazing as his caregiver but I am sure it will soon become too much even for her. She is aware of her options yet isn't ready to take that step just yet. It doesn't help that he is completely stubborn either!
Melissa, I'm sorry the news about your father isn't good. It's hard to get the news that there is more involvement that means the cancer has spread. I know about lung involvement but don't know anything about liver involvement. It is natural to feel sad about this but it would feel worse as you have the contrast with new life within when you would ordinarily be feeling joy. Please stay in touch as we are all here for you.
Trust that the dear Lord has everything under control, give Him your anxieties. Focus on that beautiful new life within you and take care of yourself...that will help your dad to feel better. You and yours are in my prayers. Hugs, M.

I have been MIA for a while because I needed a breather and things have been calm for a little while...I guess that is all changed now. Latest scans show that my father now has activity in the liver and lungs. The oncologist basically said they will try another chemo but he doesn't think there is much more he can do. They are considering going for another opinion but it isn't looking good from any perspective. It kills me that this is happenening and I am trying not to get stressed out because I am three and a half months pregnant. I just can't help being so sad and wishing this really wasn't happening.
