Our weekend was a busy one. We visited my brother-in-law who has been battling with cancer since last Thanksgiving. We were so surprised to learn that his doctor has decided to stop his chemo treatment. According to my BIL, the doctor told him that if the chemo will be continued, it will just make it worse and shorten his life to three months. The doctor then told him to enjoy his remaining time of 6-9 months.
It's a devastating revelation for all of us because the doctor told us before that everything was great after his surgery, that the remaining cancer spots in his liver can just be treated with chemo. The doctor just pulled out that remaining HOPE we all have for my BIL. My SIL made some calls and she was able to contact American Cancer Society. They have an appointment sometime this month and we are all hoping and praying that there still hope and chance for my BIL to recover this battle.
The kids were so sad upon learning the news, they both love Uncle Dave and the thought that his days are getting short makes them so sad.
My husband's theory about it is that, maybe my BIL has maxed out his insurance already that they would no longer pay for any treatment. We are praying for a MIRACLE to happen, we all hope that my BIL would still be given a chance and get cured by this new doctor that will examine him.
