My father-in-law is being discharged from the hospital tomorrow and going to some sort of a recovery home near our house. That's good. First, he's being released so he's healing well. Second, he'll be close to our house so we can visit him easily and my mother-in-law can stop sleeping on a couch in a hospital room.
My dad saw the doctor yesterday and the diagnosis doesn't sound good. Apparently, he has a tumor growing in his abdomen that has grown to the point that it is pinching off the small intestines right at the point where it connects to the stomach. They are scheduling him for surgery on Monday, but they aren't looking to remove the tumor, rather they are planning to reroute the small intestines around it.
They don't think they can cut the tumor out and the oncologist doesn't think chemo is going to be an option. They will discuss radiation, but they are saying that immunotherapy will likely be the treatment option that is taken. This doesn't give me a lot of confidence.
Yup, it's definitely going to be some rough times ahead.
