update on gerald from jared

The Dr told mom this morning that he saw no need for add’l PET scan. He was confident that dad has cancer in his right lung (but not left) and in his liver. He recommended a form of chemotherapy treatment to begin tomorrow (Tuesday) and dad has agreed. If this makes dad really sick, he doesn’t have to take anymore treatments. The next option is hospice.

Dad has some pain in his chest last night, and it seems that’s from the cancer, but we can’t be sure.

So that’s where we’re at. Nothing great, but perhaps the treatments can get him strong enough to go home for a little while.
