Re: New here... Dad (78) has AML

I'm very sorry to hear your Dad passed so quickly. It must have been quite a shock to learn he was ill and to have him gone so fast.

My Dad is doing "ok" so far. We have him completely moved in with us now. Home Health comes a few times a week to draw blood for a CBC. He went for a transfusion last week - 2 units of blood and 2 units of platelets. He has been feeling fairly good since then, except for being tired after doing simple tasks. For now, all we can hope is for more good days than bad. I hear a lot of similar stories that many do not survive very long after initial diagnosis.
