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

How very sad for you, BayouGirl. To have that heartache once is horrible, but to have to go through dealing with a parent with a serious illness again.... it's just plain unfair. Just know that you are not alone, and any time you need to talk....I will be here, as well as the thousands of others who are reading along and can offer their support and understanding. I "met" someone on the grief boards several months ago, and we have become good friends.
Keep an eye on your father's temperature. They are so prone to infection now. Also, if need be and you feel your Dad should go to the hospital, just call 911. That is what they are there for. You can't handle a weak, grown man all by yourself....
