my dad

just a quick update
my dad has now been taking chemo tablets for a week..
he is not been very well at all..had to have doctor out today to change his pain relief.
he has not been able to eat much for last few days so been feeling nauseous.
got to keep check on him over next 48hrs and if no change he needs to spend few days in hospital under observation..

i thought i was strong, but seeing him in so much discomfort i crumbled..need a good cry to get out of system..

my dad


my dad went to see his oncologist yesterday and is to start his chemo treatment on tuesday 24th aug..
he has to go for an injection of chemo on tuesday then takes oral chemo for 3weeks, he does this for a total of 12weeks, after this he has a month resbite were he will have to have a scan to see what effect the chemo has had..doctors can then work out what dosage to give him next time round..

when asked if he had any questions, he asked "will i lose my hair". at 72 he still has a full head of dark hair with only few stray grey hairs in sideburns..i told him to get the clippers out and go to a number 2 now, so he can get used to it..he may only get small amount of fall out..

unfortunatley this means we cannot go on are holidays at we can enjoy a family xmas at home instead..
my dad is more important than a holiday..

my motto is to keep prices low to sell more..

hi everyone

my mum and dad have just returned from 2weeks holiday in tenereife..
yeeeaahhh..have missed them loads....they celebrated 42yrs of marriage whilst away, the hotel manager sent a bottle champagne to their room in the morning, then when they went for their evening meal they were given a bottle wine and a gorgeous cake,which they shared with some friends they had made..

now they are back to reality.. Dad has got to attend the linda mcartney oncology center at our local hospital to discuss what type of chemotherapy he needs, and how often...he has a 12week course then is re scanned to see if it has helped..unfortunatley the tuma he has is too large to be operated on, this is just to try and stop it growing more and rupturing his stomache...we are hoping that he does not get too sick during his treatment,as we have booked to have a family holiday to fuerteventura for xmas and new yr..

will keep you updated on how things go..
 i made for a friends little girls birthday..
love kanban card kits..
