Within less than two months, the swelling came back to his elbow in full force, growing rapidly over three days. When he returned to the doctor they knew it wasn't good news. He will be undergoing a more intense treatment that will undoubtedly take him out of work once the sickness of the chemo hits. He will also be receiving a stem cell transplant which they know for certain will cause him to be bedridden for a long period of time.
Our mom will be the only one supporting herself and my dad. With house payments, medical bills and other expenses it's going to be very taxing on them. Fortunately, our jobs are flexible and will allow the three of us time to help out with taking him to appointments but financially we cannot support the needs of our parents on our own.
It is very hard for our family to ask other people for anything, we are givers, but we would like to put it out there to anyone who is willing to give our parents some help and donate whatever you can. These funds will be used strictly for my parents needs during this trying time.
Everyone's support has been incredible. We thank everyone for your thoughts, hugs and well wishes.
