My Dad Has Cancer

I am exhausted. It's been a long day. They canceled my dad's surgery. They had done a biopsy prior to the surgery and saw that there was absolutely a malignancy and it had spread. At this point we don't know what kind. We don't know by the sample where it started, just that it is cancer. Of course the belief is that it is pancreatic. I have been at the hospital all day. He is weak and can hardly speak. He sleeps most of the time. This has been a very hard and difficult time for my whole family. My mother is barely keeping it together. I will write more later. It's time to rest for now.

Oh and because it spread the surgery was basically pointless. It couldn't save him anymore. So it's been a discouraging day, to say the least.

Sucks all the way around, Sandi. I have some advice if you want it. It helped me a lot...even though it doesn't make the situation magically go away.

Sandi said...

I'll take all the advice you can dish out Andy. I appreciate it. I have had a rough year. It's been trying to say the least.

I know how you feel, it's hard to accept the fact that he will be going soon. I lost my dad to colon cancer 5 years ago and it was the hardest days of my life. I cannot say anything that will make you feel better. I just wish peace for you and your family.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and, especially your dad. He has been fighting so hard and I'm sure that was extremely difficult news to receive.

I'm very sorry to hear this.
Last year, also started around Christmas times my Mom had to go in and out the hospital ER and ICU many times, it was really a tough and devastating time.
My Mom is healthy now -thanks to Jesus-, but I know how it feels, but keep praying, praying for his best to God.

I'll pray for your Dad and the whole family.
