I haven’t had allot of time on here the last few days. My dad’s back in the hospital, my fiancé has no power (been shut off…crappy Detroit house is crappy) where he's staying and between school and work I have little time left over. I just wanted to let everyone know the cards really help keep his spirits up...unfortunately he's going through another rough patch as I stated he is back in the hospital. He went in for heart problems.
The heart problem was diagnosed as atrial defibrillation. The say this was caused by his cancer medication. The medication he is on is designed to stop the growth of tumors and if he can no longer take it his only option is chemo again. They have a heart team working with his cancer team now to try to counter the side effect and allow him to continue the medication.
Concerns. The heart problem is actually being caused by swelling of the heart but brought on by a side effect of the meds. They aren’t sure what is causing the swelling yet. We are hoping that it’s just a virus as the Dr. suggests instead of the cancer.
Well, that’s all for now…please keep the cards coming and if you pray save room for my dad.
