A CAT scan my dad had recently has shown a shrinkage of the lymph node tumors, indicating an improvement in his overall health after only three chemo treatments. Here is a picture of my dad at Christmas with 5 of his kids (my hypochondriac sister couldn't make it due to, what else? Her own "sickness." In her words, "I used to worry about him, but I decided to leave that to you since I have my own health to consider." Whatever.)

And while this is good news for him, it makes me sad to realize no one else has bothered to inquire about how things are going, and especially don't ever ask how I am handling all this. I just don't understand the selfishness and self-centeredness of each of them. Its as if no one exists except them, and there is nothing else to life except what goes on in their little world.

Anyway, just thought I would update on things. Treatment 4 was yesterday, so we're halfway there!

That is good news for you and your dad. It always amazes me to see a family that doesn't care about the other family members, just themselves. You're carrying a big burden by yourself having just survived physical trauma of your own. Hang in there.

That is awesome news. It is truly amazing when people don't care about their own parents. By the same token, nothing people do surprises me anymore. If you knew my family you'd understand.

But that's great. Hope the rest of the treatment goes as smoothly and as successfully.
