well I know it has been a while and here is the update right now he is at MD Anderson he just finished his 4 hour med. for chemo...and the other is a 72 hour med. I talked to him on the phone and he was doing good so far they are going to try this first time with chemo to see if it shrinks the tumor and the chemo they are using is the strongest there is so he has to stay there for 5 to 7 days because he will be really sick..... but right now he is resting and doing well... my family and I wanted to thank everyone for the kind thoughts and prayers and to please keep them coming that the chemo works.....

Thank you for the update. We'll continue praying for him.

Prayers on their way. Don't be afraid to hug him, or just touch his hand or shoulder - feeling isolated is often the worst part about cancer treatment.

That's great that he's doing well. I hope the chemo works.

KayKay, I am so sorry to hear your dad has been sick. I should have responded sooner, sorry about that.

I know how it is to have a dad go sick on you, and the worry is so deep. I hope your dad gets well soon, and gets back home with you all good as new very soon.

My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family, and especially with your dad.

I hope that this has good results for him. I've heard that the medication can make you very sick. So, hoping he stays strong. You might want to talk to Robilee about this. She's been through a lot of treatment herself and had success with it. Might help you understand what your dad is going through a little.

I will be keeping your father and your family in my prayers, KayKay. I'm so sorry your father has to go through this. My father has cancer too and I know how difficult it can be to watch a loved one go through chemotherapy. Please stay strong for your Dad - he doesn't want you to worry yourself sick! Just keep looking forward to that day when he comes home and you two get to sit down and watch a movie together again! :D
