Update on my dad

waiting.....i hate waiting. These past few days have been torture waiting for test results. Today my dad was told that the source of his cancer is in his lungs---5 spots, there are lymph nodes that are cancerous and his prostate has high levels as well. They won't do surgery on his jaw. He will be starting chemo next Thursday. I am filled with a rush of emotion that hits me like a wave. I am finding that the past hurts are in the shadows now. Love is more fierce than anything that happened in the past. I don't know how much time we will have together. Paul and I are going up to see him this weekend. Please pray that he would make his peace with God, and that he wouldn't be in pain as this progresses.

Many prayers are coming your way. I know what you mean, it does hit you like a 'wave'-good description. Have a good visit, it will be healing for you to be with him.

Chris, I am sorry that the news is not good. Sending prayers your way, that he finds his peace with God, and everyone, and that you can enjoy what time you have without too much pain and discomfort for him. I'm praying for strength for you & your family too.
