I've posted about my daughter in the My Child is Sick forum.
My father was diagnosed with terminal stage iv prostate cancer metastasized to the bones in July of 2009. At that time they gave him 2-10 years to live. His PSA was in the 900s. Once he had radiation to get rid of the largest tumors in his spine, they started him on hormone therapy. His PSA started to drop extremely quickly. Things were looking up.... When we got the awesome news that my daughter's ALL treatment would be finishing up on schedule (July 2010), we got the awful news that my dad's PSA was on the rise.
After my daughter was diagnosed with a relapse of her ALL, my dad just seemed to get worse. He's back to not being able to walk very well.
I feel bad, because I'm not able to help him as much as I should be, because I have to be with my daughter. He's living with my sister and she's a mess on her own without all this going on. He's only 56, so it's really hard to watch him decline so quickly after watching him be such an active player in sports in his 20s and 30s (and a little into his 40s but he wasn't suppose to be!)
It's hard for my daughter to watch him decline too, but she needs to be around her Grandpa while he's still here. He really is a great person.
