Been a blog slacker this week. I've been working, and dealing with life issues, such as being sick, myself, and something that I've not been free to really post about, until now.
Some of you may know that my Dad had cancer, about 6 years back. Lymphoma, in his stomach. It was a rough time, for all of us, but him especially.
He is a tough customer, though, and beat that cancer back.
But it is back.
He has been complaining of a sore throat, for a few months, now. After jumping all the hoops that have been established in our fine, medical community (cough cough) we've finally got a diagnosis.
The actual location of the tumor is the base of his tongue, believe it or not. Large-ish, walnut sized, maybe bigger?
He kicked it once before
He will do it again.
In the mean time, everyone send your best thoughts and good karma his way. He deserves it, I know I am prejudiced, but I've not met a man his equal. (MM is on the right path, though ;))

I'm so sorry about your dad. I'll be sending positive thoughts your way (and maybe even a prayer or two - can't hurt right?)

He can definitely beat it again.

prayer is always a good thing, and the more the better!
I actually feel a little better, knowing he has something he's beat before...

Cancer is tough, but nothing can touch the magnitude of the human spirit. May you Dad be victorious once again over cancer.

He must be one awesome man and I will keep him in my prayers.

I hope that you are feeling better and that next week will be a good one.

He has our prayers and love, we are rooting for him again. He's tough, he'll do what he has to and leave the rest to God.
