    Default They may be making my dad go back to work

    My dad applied to long term disability, and it was recently given back. Why? Because dad's oncologist suggested that dad actually is fit enough to go to work. Dad is not fit physically, especially on his chemo days, and definitely not mentally nor emotionally. Please, please pray for him. He's sick, has no sick time, and he needs his disability to be able to heal.

    He he needs to heal, please pray for him.

    That's terrible . I'll definitely be praying! God sees everything, He never leaves us on our own.
    Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
    ~James 1:17

    a. Nausea
    b. Sensitivity to sound
    c. Constipation several days after infusion
    d. Severe fatigue, usually beginning the 3rd day after initial infusion
    e. Aching of lower back up to 4 days after infusion
    f. Trouble with focus of eyes, light sensitivity
    g. Shaking and tingling of hands
    h. Smelling the chemo/chemicals while they’re being sweat out
    i. Taste changes
    i. Medicine-like taste
    ii. Sweet things taste off
    j. Headache
    k. Needs to be on a set schedule for food and drink during/after chemo
    i. During: eats every 2 hours, quarter Ondancetron every 4 hours, 1 half Reglan at breakfast and one at dinner, 2 antacids before breakfast, 4 Coriolis twice a day, 1 ginger, 1 omega 3 fatty acid, and 12 glasses of water through the day.
    ii. After: Less stringent on the eating schedule, but still all medicine, water, and added 2 glasses of mixed juice (mixture of spinach, carrots, pineapple, strawberries, and apples) during the day.

    My parents are freaking each other out I should say. Dad is angry, mom is now angry and they're hilariously angry and I'm just not sure what I'm supposed to do here

    They're a bit calmer now, but they're definitely hot. Like talking about malpractice liability speaking hot.

    There is an assessment tomorrow for dad, on his weakest day, about whether he needs his disability or not. He does. He can't work. But they want to put it that he can. And he cannot handle the stress of this. Please pray that Gods will be done. If nothing else I will go with him to work as support.

    At this point dad seems calmer but worried. He can't sleep well right now due to stress. I don't know what I can really do for him but pray

    praying now


    Forgiveness Prayer:

    Lord Jesus, Divine Forgiver; make me an instrument of forgiveness
    This is the first day of the rest of my life.
    I forgive those who have hurt me deeply,
    I am leaving behind those things of the past and all my past failures and sins.
    I'm pressing on today, with a new beginning in You.
    Have your way, clear my conscience and mend my broken heart.
    Put joy where sorrow once rested.- In Jesus Name AMEN

    From all the reports I hear, he's good back to work. Literally he's been trying to tell them he shouldn't and their response was "if you are dissatisfied with your care go elsewhere." Can I scream?

    A second opinion is often recommended. Is it possible? Prayers for your mom and dad...

    Listen, I realize this may be terrifying to hear and totally insensitive about what the doctors did however, his employer may be more than understanding and may be able to adjust things to make things work. It's hard to let go of something and someone who is very important to you, but once you do it allows God to have full control and God would never put you or your loved ones in a circumstance that he knows yall couldn't manage....hes wonderful that way
    I choose to honor God by inspiring people. How do you honor him?........
