Tomorrow, my father in law will start chemotherapy.
I mentioned a few posts ago that he had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He had Whipple Surgery a couple of weeks ago. He will be starting chemo now… it seems like a fairly aggressive protocol, but I don’t really know. He will be taking oral chemotherapy drugs and also on an IV of the drugs once a week for 3 weeks and 1 week “break”, for about 6 months.
I am afraid to watch him deteriorate. I’m keeping it in – my husband is optimistic and I don’t want to ruin that for him. His dad is amazingly strong, but I am so scared to watch the battle.
That is completely selfish and this is not about me.
Of course I will be there for my husband, his dad, and the rest of our family in any way that I can be. It’s still terrifying.
Faith. Hope. Love.
