oh my... im at a loss for words and can only wish your father the best - he's clearly having a fight right now...
i just wanted to give you some peace of mind regarding the avastin. normally it's given every 2 weeks, though 3 weeks is becoming more common i think. BUT, it stays in your body awhile and still 'works' so if they have to postpone it a week or so, it should be fine. my husband is on the 3 week schedule but had to miss today's because his platelets are too low. so if he can have it next week, that will be 4 weeks.
please let us know how your father does and what happens!
ps - i heard the steroids can cause a rash...
