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.
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.
