    You always have my prayers Steph but I need to be truthful here if I'm going to be a good friend here. Sometimes there is nothing to do or nothing you can do. Steph God bless your passion in caring for your dad but you can't be there for everything and expect to be the agent of relief for everything.
    There are aches and pains some medicines won't address. Mental fatigue, scrambled thoughts, side effects that will last for a while.
    Your dad will be different after the treatments and will have to get used to the new him. So will you.
    Emotionally it fatiguing , a huge rollercoaster ride 24/7 sometimes. To much sleep, not enough sleep. The body is adjusting and readjusting. I think your doing everything anyone can and I know it's hurtful to watch but we all have our limitations....but the Lord he has none.

    Got you in prayer my friend.

    Also they had dad go back to work today. I'm part sad, part mostly excited to get personal time, yet also guilty because I shouldn't feel so excited to be alone. Dad tends to not feel much when he's kinda overloaded, he says his tendency is to go kinda numb. But for me it's like emotional confusion.

    Steph, it's perfectly okay to feel blessed by a small hiatus.

    you don't always have to be the strong one. ♥

    For some reason our house has kinda been a bit....emotionally up heaved. There has been random arguing and dad gets irritated a lot more easily....we just need prayer I guess.

    I know what that's like sweetie that's pretty much 24/7 here at my house these storms come but eventually pass. Emotions are like bubbles you see from the carbonation when you pour soda really fast they fizz up but soon enough bubble down

    So Dad had some liquid outside his stomach and I think it’s gettig drained. Which scares me because he has a chemo that makes healing slower so I’m scared he’s gonna get an infection.

    Haha almost instant update. He ended up not needing any liquid taken out, but they did do an ultrasound which told them that the liquid was only like 11 ounces. Not enough to really warrant anything other than what is already scheduled.
