I don’t know if POTP works for humans but my dad is very ill in the hospital. And he’s having a bone scan today. Can we give it a try? Connor got it started.

Nancy sending pawstive thoughts and the Power of the Paw your way……prayers from your dad. Hopefully a good outcome for the bone scan.

Sending Power of the Paw out to you and your dad. I am so sorry your dad is so very sick, praying that the bone scan does not find anything that cannot be treated.
August 12, 2014 at 7:56 pm #68065
I believe in the power of the paw…..Sally and Jackson have paws crossed and I pray that your dad will be fine.

Thanks everyone!!! I think POTP helped because now they’re saying that his prostate is enlarged not cancerous. He will probably go home today which makes him very happy. Still waiting for the results of the bone scan.
I will keep you posted but please ask your goldens to keep those paws crossed (only sleeping and sitting, not when they are walking and running!) 🙂

Nancy continued POTP to your family as your dad recuperates at home. Best Wishes.
August 14, 2014 at 12:47 pm #68072
Keeping your dad in our thoughts.
August 14, 2014 at 5:41 pm #68076
Wonderful news, I know all of you must be so relieved to hear it. Cancer is such an evil disease. Will keep dad in my prayers.
August 17, 2014 at 8:14 am #68079
Power of the paw for your dad. Here’s to a speedy recovery.
August 17, 2014 at 8:23 am #68080
The diagnosis has changed since I last wrote. The bone scan results show cancer in his collar bone, rib, thigh and hip. He has primary cancer in his prostate, rectum and possibly the bladder. He starts 10 days of radiation therapy next week.
But he is home now and not in pain. So please keep those paws crossed and the POTP coming> he will need it as he starts treatment>
Thanks to all for letting me share and for your support>

Sorry to hear of the diagnosis. Sending lots of POTP for your Dad during his treatment.

HI! Nancy how’s your dad doing? Continuing to send positive thoughts and prayers your way.
September 28, 2014 at 11:26 am #68196
Thank you for asking!
My dad developed a kidney infection on top of everything else. His kidneys were barely functioning and they were going to do a procedure to drain them. Then the antibiotics seemed to kick in and his kidneys are now getting a bit better each day. When I saw him on Wednesday, he had trouble recognizing me. On Friday he looked like his old self and was talking hockey and football and wasn’t confused at all!
He still has 3-4 kinds of cancer to fight and a few other issues but the kidneys are crucial to determining if he can go home.
So please keep that power of the paw coming! He needs every paw he can get.

Nancy, Praying that your dad gets to go home, I am sure that is what he wants. He will be much more comfortable at home. All the medication they give a cancer patient definitely does mess up their mind. Just keep talking to him especially about sports if that is what he likes. Spend as much time as you can with him, you will be so glad that you did. Sending a big hug to you too. Hope it helps.
September 28, 2014 at 10:00 pm #68198
As much power of the paws we can send to you and your dad. Hope he gets home so he can be around familiar surroundings.
September 30, 2014 at 11:45 am #68201
So very sorry to hear about your dad Nancy. Were sending double Power of the Paw to him.
October 26, 2014 at 11:04 am #68286
Nancy just wanted to say you are still in our thoughts and prayers…hope everything is going OK.

I know I haven’t been on here much lately. I do appreciate all the concern for my dad and all those big golden paws sent his way.
He has really turned things around! He’s like his old self. He has a walker but gets around like a champ. He has a catheter and bag but it doesn’t bother him. His oncologist says his cancer “isn’t angry” which means it isn’t spreading. In fact I think it is showing signs of remission. He had a minor urinary infection a couple of weeks ago but that’s all cleared up now.
These days he’s enjoying the hockey playoffs. 🙂 Today mom and dad went to Arby’s for lunch (one of his fav places and then to the Regent Casino where they met some of their mall walking friends.
When I remember how sick and weak he looked last summer and fall, I can’t believe how much better he is today. It really was a Power of the Paw miracle!

Glad to hear your Dad is doing well!
