      Sorry no news is good news at the moment.

      I am loosing my dear dad, he can nearly no longer walk and his right arm is now going numb.

      The damm flu has robbed him of sleep for 4 nights and taking away his final quality of life.

      I feel ripped off and desperately sad.

      I hate melanoma.

                            Nahmi, I am truly saddened to read this.

                            A few years ago, my late wife's oncologist admitted that doctors know very little about melanoma. Unfortunately, the situation hasn't changed much since then despite the fact that new treatments continue to be discovered.

                            You and your dad continue to remain in my thoughts and prayers.

                                  I just can't let go I suppose…..is it worth Stereotactic radiation surgery on that one met that's causing motor function problems? I have asked the Oncologist anyway. Bit of long shot, just want him to have more time.

                                            I am so sorry to hear about your dad. It's absolutely worth asking about the stereotactic radiation surgery. Prayers and hugs to you both.

                                                    I’m so sorry to hear this. I lost my Dad to Mel 2.5 years ago and was diagnosed stage 3c a month later. Am now battling stage 4. It is an evil disease and I’ve come to accept there is no understanding it most of the time. I will pray for peace for you.

                                                                          I hope he has more time, but if not, I hope his passing is free of pain.

                                                                          I’ve lost both my parents. There is never a good time for that. And you are right, melanoma is an awful disease.

                                                                            Hugs to you… and remember, you will get through this.
