    My grandfather began his immunotherapy l treatments last week. So far the only side effect has been fatigue so he basically sleeps all day now. I hope he can eventually swallow and eat solids again and regain a little strength but we shall see. He is supposed to have a scan at the end of next month to tell us how effective the treatment has been. 
    Fingers crossed for him and your family.

    My grandfather passed away last Sunday after a long battle with throat cancer. We called hospice in for one day and he passed the next day. He was ready. I sensed a change in his condition last Thursday and by Sunday he just couldn't fight anymore and was ready. Having spent so much time by his side every day the last several years I'm not sure I will ever fully heal from his loss. He was like a father to me for the last 20 years.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I know you have posted many wonderful things about him here.  It is great that you were able to develop a close relationship with him over the years. Keep that in your heart.

    I’m very sorry. I’m sure he loved having you with him, and you more than likely gave him (more) spirit. Good thoughts to you and your family.

    So sorry for your loss.
    Sounds like he lived a full life 73 years married, wow. 
    Cherish your memories of him, my best to you and your family.

    Sorry for your loss. Cancer sucks

    My closest cousin has been in the hospital for the past week, dealing with cancer again. He went through it all last year - stomach cancer, chemo, clean bill of health.

    Now the fucker is back with a vengeance, to the point where we have a WhatsApp thread to band together and keep us updated as things happen. Haven’t heard from his wife today...a bad sign right now.

    Fuck cancer, fuck Covid, fuck this feeling of helplessness.
