melcreada: (all this bullshit)
Big, big HUGS and thanks to everyone who reached out to me about my dad. I have bemoaned the death of LJ, but it's deeply comforting to know some of you are still out there. It's a really nice feeling.

I wish I had good news, but I don't. It seems every time we go to the doctor, the news gets worse and worse. But all in all, my dad is in decent spirits right now and that is all I can ask. They haven't made any firm decisions about treatment yet - every appointment feels like it lasts a year and I want to shake someone and tell them to speak in plain English.

But, as I mentioned to someone earlier, this ain't our first rodeo and from previous, similar situations with both my dad and brother, I can say that nothing yet has been unfamiliar - the waiting, the worry, the back and forth to the hospital, the joking, the frustration, and the knowledge that somehow I have become a caretaker. Thank goodness my sister and, to some extent, my brother are sharing this load because I don't know what I would do otherwise.
