I'm not really sure how to even start.
Earlier this summer, we discovered that my dad's prostate cancer was getting worse. There are only so many treatment options available, and he is on the last option before chemo becomes necessary. The doctor gave him new meds that are supposed to supplement this hormone treatment he's been taking for the past few years with the hope that it would be kind of like a booster to the hormone therapy.
My dad has decided to stop taking the new meds. He's done.
The side effects of the new meds were hard for him. He looks terrible. He has hives from head-to-toe. He spends most of his time dozing off in the chair in front of the television. His quality of life has really gone down since he started taking the meds. So I get it. I really do.
It doesn't make it any easier, though. Now we just watch. And wait.
I just want my daddy to be better. And I know it's not possible.
