Dad had his 4 month follow-up at UVA today and he is still cancer free! Dr. Martin said that everything looked wonderful. However, Dad does have some Radiation Fibrosis which is a side effect from his radiation treatments. This is what is causing a lot of his coughing and the excess mucus that he has been having. Dr. Martin is going to work with Dad's pulmonologist in Williamsburg to get Dad on some steroids to hopefully help. Dad will go back on January 6th for his next set of scans. As long as everything looks okay, they will discuss taking out Dad's port, which he is so excited about!
I hope no one is offended by Dad's socks, but I got them for him shortly after his diagnosis and he has worn them to each appointment. Everyone always gets a kick out of them!
Thank you for your continued loved and support of our family!
