I wanted to share that it has almost been a month since my father's first Lupron injection.  So far so good.  He has no side effects to speak of and he has made incredible strides as far as attitude.  We had an amazing Christmas and I think his 10 week old Grandson had a lot to do with the extra cheer.  Regardless, he looks great and feels great and since the celebration post awhile back, I decided that today I am celebrating this milestone! It's good to have my dad back.  Cheers to a cancer free 2008! God bless all of you!

Hi Doting,
Glad to see the HT is treating your dad well! :-)
You know, when you consider that it's only been a short time since discovery, surgery and the realization that HT was needed - well, that's a lot to deal with. The expectation/hope is that the cancer will be gone once surgery is over and when that turns out not to be the case it's a huge emotional issue - not to mention the physical side of it. With the help of your mom and such a caring daughter your dad is on a good path. Your dear little boy is such an addition to his life - he's a fortunate man.
May 2008 be good to you & yours,
Susan

Thank you all! Your prayers and support are so powerful!  The next shot is on Jan. 2nd.  He has a bone density test early next week and then they do the second shot.  Hopefully the side effects will stay away.  2008 needs to be a good year :-)
