For those of you who don't know, my dad has cancer in his prostate and in his bones. By the time they discovered it he had been walking around with it for too long, so it can't be cured. If you want more details, look for my entries in the time before Easter this year.
What's new now is that the first treatment, the hormon treatment that was to postpone the cancercells from attacking and actually made him able to lead a pretty normal life, has stopped working. It's pretty sudden, and the doctors weren't expecting it at all. So now they aren't really talking about him lasting for years anymore... The next treatment is chemo, which I know he's not looking forward to. He might start right away, but he might wait a couple of weeks as well. We have a bunch of relatives coming over to stay for a while from Colorado, and if it's not urgent he will probably postpone it so that he can hang with them for a while instead of being at the hospital. I'm flying back to Norway next tuesday for a week, which I was planning to do anyway.
This really changed a lot of things for everyone, and suddenly my head is filled with thoughts and questions about the situation again. I'll be allright, but this is some pretty tough shit.
(oh and, you know what's funny? that post yesterday...i had no idea of this then. he just got his test results today)
