My father in law was diagnosed in Dec.99 and has been having Chemo once a week(3 weeks on, 1 off). THis past week, he decided to skip treatment because he was not feeling well, and this next week is his week off treatment. Has anyone had any experience with this and if so, does the count go up dramatically just by missing a week? Also, I will probably be the main caregiver once he can no longer care for himself and I was wondering what I can expect at that point. I already have it arranged to take a leave of absence from my job to care for him and basically I was wondering how long the end lasts and if missing chemo is a major problem. Thank you for any responses----Kerri
