Thank you to those who have offered prayers and thoughts for my dad's health. We knew after his surgery last Monday that he was not officially out of the woods until the pathology report came back, and now we know for sure that we are headed back into the woods. We learned yesterday that of the 13 lymph nodes that they removed for testing, cancer was found in 6. The surgeon said that all things considered, his cancer is a stage 3 deal. Not the best news of the week, but not the worst. It could have been all 13 instead of just 6; his cancer could be stage 4 or metastasized into other organs. He has an oncology appointment on May 25th, but we already know that chemo is really the only option at this point. Please keep the prayers and the uplifting thoughts coming in the next few days and weeks. I could REALLY use them right now.
