biopsy update

Dads biopsy went well and doctor believes he was able to obtain enough tissue for the lab, praying we will soon have some answers. Doctor mentioned that dads cancer cells are a little smaller which is very unusual and he cant explain it, I told him it is called prayer.

As the day progressed, dads lung collasped due to the procedure, air and fliud surronding his lung. Dad was then admitted to the hospital to be put under doctor supervision.

Phone calls

Dad recevied an unpleasant phone call yesterday. I really wish you guys can put your pride aside and make this easy on him. He doesn't need any negativity. He or I know anymore than what you guys already know about his condition. After his phone call yesterday he cried and said he rather leave to Guadalajara and die there alone. He is very upset of the doubts, put downs, and negativity against me. please try and remember this is not about me, put your focus on dad and his feelings and what he wants. This post is not an open door to start a dispute, it is only to ask that you guys consider his feelings and wishes. I don't want him to leave to Guadalajara. THANK YOU[...]

update

Dad is doing better and breathing is getting easier. As I stated yesterday this is not the solution to his cancer, it's only to help him breath easier. This procedure can not be done frequently. Biopsy is still pending, until then we will know what the next step is.[...]

Fluid

Dad has fluid built up again in his lungs and has had some discomort.  I am taking him in today to have some fluid removed so he may breath easier on his own and minimize his pain. He will also be put on pain medication. looks like the cancer in his ribs is starting to be painful. Please take into consideration that removing fluid is not the solution, it is only to give him comfort and can not be done frecuently.[...]
