He's scared half to death... which freaks me out. I mean, he's my DAD! He's not supposed to be scared, ever! (I'm just kidding, of course. But it IS weird to hear him use that "S" word. Very weird.)

But anyway, he's in otherwise good spirits, which is very good. His oncologist has apparently treated every cancer patient in the area, and they all have nothing but wonderful things to say about her, so that made him feel better about the whole thing.

Thanks for asking. I was just going to post an update later this morning, heh.

We'll keep both of you in our prayers.

Sometimes I think that having a good spirit about our trials in this life is half the battle of overcoming them.

Just in the last 12-16 months, I have known 4 people who were diagnosed with cancer. All of them have come out of it cancer free and better off than before. I know that it isn't always the case, but I believe that it will be for your dad.

I'm praying for both of you!
