my ct scan this week showed continued stability, still no lung and liver involvement for which I'm grateful. It's just in my abdomen wall and some lymph nodes.
But I got worrying news about my dad. When he went for an eye checkup to get new glasses, they found something behind his eye. He has a past of colon and prostate cancer and he's survived both. He now has a referral to a big cancer hospital in Toronto on Tuesday for testing of this eye thing. Can it be something other than cancer? If it's cancer, what's the prognosis? Will he go blind? Can they simply radiate the eye and he be cured?
I'm really worried because my mom is in a wheelchair and has lost vision from her diabetes/sepsis and we rely on my dad a lot. He takes her to physio etc. And he drives me to my chemo and scans etc. when my wife is working. We selfishly can't handle having another sick family member! We need him!
