My mom calls me and always let's me know how dad's DR's appointments goes... Well dad had an appointment with his blood doctor and he told my parents that he is 99% sure my dad has bone marrow cancer 😢. Will find out the total results on Friday... This is going to be the longest week of my life! If his results come back like the doctor is saying.. they are not sure that my dad's heart or kidneys can hold up to any treatment.. see my dad has stage 3 kidney failure. I can't go through something like this again! This stress has me in a full on Flair. I'm going crazy and have no anxiety meds to help my nerve's! Please keep my family in your prayers. This Sucks!! 😢😢
Sjogrenspain77, I'm sending you gentle hugs, love & prayers for strength and courage! It seems so many of us are struggling through our own health issues while trying to deal with those of close relatives. I'm here for you! 🙂💕🙏🌼
Talked to my mom yesterday and they are nice going to do a bone marrow biopsy on my dad, his blood work showed that his kidneys weren't producing white blood cells. We now have the wait 2 more weeks for the results. Thought I would update everyone on my Dad's current status. I am myself trying to recover from a very long and stressful week. Take care everyone, I'll be back when I can, still in a flair and over did it today. This Blessed everyone! Check in later.
Mom called to let me know that Dad's bone marrow biopsy is this Friday and the results are on the 19 th ... He also has to under go cateraic surgery on his other eye on Wednesday. Thank you for your continued thoughts and prayers and positive vibes, they are very much appreciated and I can't Thank You enough!
I'm terribly sorry that your family is facing this! I can't imagine how worried, scared, and sad you all are, and I know I do not have any words that will help. Just know I am sending up prayers on your behalf, and on behalf of your whole family. I pray that his tests come back clean and that he has many good years ahead of him. I pray for comfort for you all, and for your health to not take a drastic turn due to the stress. My heart goes out to you hun. <3
Oh no Sjogrenspain77, I'm soo sorry to see this. I want you to know I am sending out all my positive vibes and energy to you and your whole family. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. My heart goes out to you, I hope your flare starts to settle down. Sending you my warm healing protective hugs xx
Thank You everyone, he is resting at"home" now just the long weeks wait for the results on the biopsy.. I've been trying to distract my mind but not having any luck and haven't sleep well in month's. I'm afraid that if he does have the cancer they won't do treatment's because of his health... He has congestive heart failure and stage 3 kidney failure... is like a nightmare I can't wake up from...I went through this over a year ago with my aunt.. She needed a new heart valve and she went through intense testing to find out that she had breast cancer that spread so they sent her home on hospice instead because they couldn't do the heat surgery because of the cancer.... Now a year later we're facing a similar situation with my Dad! Praying that the tests come back negitive. I want my dad arounda long time and it sucks I can only afford to at him once a year. But I'm happy I get to at least see him once a year. Will update Friday when I hear back from my Mom. Thanks for reading and praying.
I found a sort of guided meditation called Tapping. There are several videos online that teach how to do it. It looks like it's a total whack-a-doodle philosophy, but having nothing to lose, I tried it. It really helped me release some stress and control my anxiety. Maybe give it a go. I can guarantee it won't make your stress worse, and it might help. I've been looking for natural ways to release stress and negative emotions because they are such a huge pain trigger. I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, and I'm so thrilled that you have such a loving relationship with him. That must be so wonderful for you. You have my prayers.
Just have to get through tonight we find out tomorrow the results of my dad's test results from the bone marrow biopsy.... Haven't slept hardly at all this week..I crashed at 9 but ended up waking up at 1 and going back to sleep at 5:30am just for my alarm to go off at 6 am..... But my dad's doctor said that we need to start looking for a donor and that was yesterday.. Do I think already have our results, but still praying for a negitive result.
I don't know to say... FatiguedFigher, seeing this me cry 😭. I'm waiting to hear back to see if I could even get tested... Not sure because of the Sjogrens Syndrome it being an autoimmune disease and all. I'll let everyone know the results as soon as I hear back from my mom, his appointment is at 10:30 his time.
I'm sorry I didn't come her as soon as I found out because my body said it was time to crash, it's excellent news my dad's tests came back NEGITIVE! He will however have to have creatin shots, but that is doable! Thank you everyone for the prayers and FatiguedFighter to you most of all... I can't believe you were willing to go through something like that for someone you didn't know... I'm very speechless and very greatful.. much love and prayers to all of you and I pray you all are having a day with light to no pain. 😘💖🌹
