Affaircare,
Thanks so much for your prayers and kind words. Yes God will help us get through this. I will just be glad when he starts the chemo and it's over with. The waiting is so hard on me. I love him so much and he's such a nice Christian man and needs all the help we can give him.

Blessings,
Granny7

Granny, I will add your grandson to my rapidly growing prayer list. He is the same age as my daughter. I can not imagine how you must be feeling. I'm so sorry. (((HUGS)))

EI,
Thanks so much for adding him to your prayer list. He's on a lot of them and definitely has a lot of support, along with his Faith and positive attitude. I pray that the chemo isn't as bad as I hear it is.

Blessings, Granny7

It depends on the chemo. Some chemotherapy treatments aren't as "bad" as others. I have a girlfriend who had almost 16 weeks of chemo, but her hair didn't fall out. She did have something she used to call "chemo-brain". Her thinking was foggy. She'd be more forgetful. That went away with time.
Still wishing your grandson and family all the best..

An update on my grandson's chemo treatments for cancer. He started the treatment two days ago, on the 28th. of July. So far the one thing that is bothering him is the pain in his hips, which I haven't studied about. He's also very tired, but I also think that comes from him trying to work at his Firm before he started treatment. Also enjoying the last weekend before treatment at the beach having fun. I also think he is taking the stress of this internally in order to be strong for everyone.

So continue the prayers for him, as the chemo he's getting is very strong for 5 days and during that time, they are flushing his kidneys a lot as this chemo can cause problems with them down the road.

Thanks to everyone for all your kind words and prayers.

Hi Philat,

Not well, very worried and sad about my grandson's battle with testicular cancer. He just finished his 2nd. round, was pretty sick last night. He has had his head shaved pretty closely as it was falling out unevenly. His brother's, Dad, Grandfather & Uncle are going to do the same thing in support of what he is going through. He has 2 weeks off of chemo now and then has 2 more 5 days sessions to go through before they do the CT Scan and blood work to see if they got all the cancer in his lymph nodes or if anymore have re-appeared.

He's still working hard at his Law firm, but is very tired. He's a positive thinker and was recognized as a hard worker at a meeting at his firm yesterday which made him feel really good.

I just pray when it's all over that his CT Scan comes back positive, I will feel so much better when that happens.

Thanks for asking,

Granny7

richie33,
So do I! He sure is trying hard enough, he's a fighter and always thinks positive and has his faith in God also. I pray for him many times a day, along with the rest of the family.
Thanks,
Granny7

Unhappy Re: My Twin 26 yr. Old Grandson's Cancer Has Come Back!

To Everyone,
I just saw a picture of my 26 yr. old grandson who has finished 2 rounds of Chemo. My husband and I were shocked at his appearance. It was so sad, his eyes sunk in, loss of weight ( he's already thin) and his coloring. We have not seen him since he started his weekly chemo treatments and it brought tears to my eyes, he looked so bad.

He'll start his 3rd. Round of chemo in one more week. He has a total of 4 rounds of this, one week on, 2 weeks off, then one last round.

Then he waits 2 weeks before they do the CT Pet Scan, if I have that right to see if they got all the cancer in the lymph nodes that spread from his testical cancer. I just pray that it's clear, but that won't be till November 11th.

I hate Cancer, it's awful what it does to your body. His siblings and all the members of his immediate family shaved there head so he wouldn't feel so bad. Just keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks, Granny 7

Granny, could you please give us an update on your grandson's illness when you have an opportunity? He has remained on my prayer list. (((HUGS)))

Hi EI,
Also to everyone else who have inquired about my 26 yr. old twin grandson who has been going through aggressive chemo for cancer that had spread to his lymph nodes due to testicular cancer 18 months earlier.

He had 4 rounds ( 5 days in a row, then two weeks off) and just finished his last round this past Friday, Oct. 3rd. He had been doing pretty well on the first 3 rounds, tired, nauseous but did go to work for 4 hrs. afterwards.

After this last round he hasn't done so well. He's extremely tired and weak. He finished it on Friday and slept the whole weekend, day and night. He didn't feel very well this morning and went into the doctor to see how his blood count was doing and it was okay. They told him that it was the result of all the chemo that he's been through. He looks so bad right now. I saw a picture that was taken of him on the last day as his parents brought him balloon's to celebrate. I cried when I saw how bad he looked. No hair of course, grayish colored skin and sunken in eyes.

He goes back to his doctor on 11/11/14 after having a CT PET Scan to be sure that all the cancer is gone. I am praying so hard that it is as I can't imagine that he would have to go through surgery and then more chemo and probably radiation also.

The whole situation is so sad and I wish I could do more to help him, but the boys don't seem to want any help. He even went to work today after leaving the doctor's office, I don't know how he does it. He actually has the highest production of business in the Law Firm and that's with battling cancer. He's a very strong young man and I love him so much.

Thanks for asking and we all sure appreciate the prayers for him. I lit two candles at church. One for him and the other for his brother to pass the Bar, which sadly he didn't. So that means his twin brother failed it 3 times now. He hasn't given up and thank God the Law Firm wants to keep him on, so at least he has a job until he takes it again.

Thanks for asking,
Granny7
