Hello all. I am new. I just found out about this site. My dad is 57 and is about to move on. He was diagnosed in early October 2006 and responded really well to the chemo until recently. He went to the doctors on the 7th of this month and the oncologist told us that his body is now too weak to continue with chemo. After getting this news he resigned to the thought of dying. I am not blaming him because he has fought this for so long but and has been in soooo much pain, i can't help but be full of anger. The PET scan showed that the cancer spread to his lungs, bladder, intestines, and lymphatic system. In the past week or so he has gone from fair to terrible. Now he can neither eat nor walk. The doctors are giving him until the 1st of december. He is holding on until all of us kids are together to say our final goodbyes. Please, I am having a difficult time talking to my family because I am their back bone. I am holding everyone together.. There is no one to talk to, no one to support me.

Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
