Myelomas return

A little over a year ago dad had a pain in his spine that turned out to be Multiple Myeloma. He underwent chemo which worked well but broke his personality and sanity. It was a long climb out from depression for him but he's a strong and loving man. Just when he's feeling fit and enjoying life again he got blindsided buy the news that it has returned and is aggressively eating his chest and ribs. He starts treatment on Monday. Because of the problems he had on the original chemo that is now ruled out as a option. We may be looking at stem cell therapy or who knows what.
We just had a lovely lunch together at a local pizzeria.
They gave me lemons.
Love you dad.
See you soon

Jeeez, I hope everything works out ok for your Dad. I have never had to suffer through the illness of a parent but I am sure it is tough.

My thoughts are with you and sending positive vibes to your pops.

I'm sorry to hear this about your dad, Steve. But take heart that you've got three (at least) generations of males in your family who are real fighters!

All the best wishes to you and your dad.
