For some, little explanation is needed. Greg was diagnosed with stage 3b squamous non small cell lung cancer at the end of the year. It is also in a few lymph nodes-clavical and abdomen. Due to breathing issues and scheduling, he just started treatment March 21st. His daughter Shannon, who lives in Bismarck, flew in to go to his first chemo appointment with him. She has been through it and wanted to be his ROCK during a very scary time. He has been a good patient, well, most of the time. As well as he can be-how is that? The radiation oncologist will reevaluate him after he has had a few rounds of chemo. Then they might add radiation. He has stopped smoking which has been a huge change for him. That has been very difficult but so far so good. Nausea meds work well so that has not been much of an issue-except for this morning! He is very fatigued and weak, as expected. The problem now is to get enough water in him to help with the symptoms. That is key-hydration. So drink up and pop doesn't count.!!!
