My dad was just diagnosed with NHL. I feel lost. I live 2 hours from him, and he doesn't have anyone to take care of him. Do I make him move in with me? How serious are the treatments? What can I be expecting down the road?! I haven't gotten to talk with his Drs yet, it's all so new. He had his tonsils removed, and they then told him he had a form of throat cancer, today they confirmed it was NHL. They were going ot start chemo today, but decided on doing a bone marrow test next week first...i'm scared. I feel like I may be just over reacting?! I need help.View Thread
Please let me know how this is going for the both of you. Are you getting any emotional support from other areas? My dad was just diagnosed and I feel lost. Do I need to quit my job to take care of him? He lives 2 hours away but I'm thinking about forcing him to live with me so I can take care of him. I am lost, so any information you can provide will be a blessing. Prayers with you!View Thread
