    Your sweet daddy...I hope he recovers soon. He was there next to him, the minute he left this world. My condolences, wannabee.

    Dad's most recent scan came back with dark news. He has a 3rd tumor deep in the brain now. They can do surgery to improve mobility but he might not survive it and it wouldnt prolong his life anyway.

    Doctors say he has about a month. Maybe a little more or less. I will be taking a leave of absence from work to be with him now. I'm distraught.

    Thank you everyone. The doc is preparing to tell him tomorrow. We (most of my family except one of my brothers) don't want to tell him but the doc insists. It will break his optimistic spirit.

    You can never tell TD. People surprise us by how they respond, sometimes. My prayers will be with you. As you are taking time off from work your dad is lucky! He will have someone by his side to savor and maximize the time he has left.

    well..no offense...lucky is a bit of a stretch...that being said, it is true that sometimes patients are releived when the pretense is over ...sometimes they feel obligated to keep it up for others...certainly it will be difficult...I will pray that it will be graced and consoling

    So sorry to hear this TD. What an amazing gift to give your dad, your company while he goes through this. My prayers will be with you and your entire family. There are no words that will ease your pain, but just know that we are thinking of you. *HUGS*

    I mentioned earlier that I have Restless Leg Syndrome; I'm actually participating in a study on RLS that is being done at a local research clinic. A medication is being tested in lower doses for the treatment of RLS. I've been given three bottles of tablets and am to take one from each before bedtime. At least one is suppose to be the drug and at least one a placebo, or all three could be a placebo, the doctor and staff don't even know which is which. Began taking them two nights ago and it is effective and helps me to sleep better as well, but the most amazing thing is an elevated mood when I get out of bed in the morning, I've been pretty gloomy in the mornings as of late, but none since taking these tablets. The drug in question is Gabapentin which I understand is actually used my mental patients, but also for RLS; so maybe it has mood elevating properties? And I get paid 50 dollars for every appointment.
