IMPORTANT....PLEASE DO NOT COMMENT ABOUT MY DAD ON FACEBOOK...COMMENT ON HERE IF YOU WISH.
Okay. First of all, I don't know if I'm gonna get in trouble for sharing this or not. Technically, I'm not sharing on facebook, so...anyway. My dad is a VERY private person. He is 72, and in that generation, you keep your problems to yourself, it's nobody's business, we don't talk about things like this, blah, blah, blah. Well tough.
My dad is also a Christian. They have told their closest friends...I have asked a few people to pray via e-mail and such, but I want as many people praying for my Daddy as possible, so I'm making it known. My dad was just diagnosed with cancer. Adenocarcinoma to be exact. Right now all we know is that he has one "small" tumor in his right lung. He had a PET scan last Saturday, and an MRI on Monday which will determine if the cancer is anywhere else, and what stage he is. So I am asking you to please pray that this cancer is only in the one spot, and that it can be treated and cured without surgery. My dad is not in the best of health anyway. Ironically, he quit smoking about 3 months ago after 60+ years.
Also, if you know my parents, please do not say anything to them at this time. His name is Harold.
Obviously this is horrible news, and it's stressing me out. I'm not ready to lose my dad. I know no one ever is, but Jacob is only 5 and he needs his Papa.
Stress is not good for my MG. Nor is this wicked cold that will not leave me alone. So that's my second request, that you please pray for me to get rid of this blasted thing. It's really starting to take its toll.
Jacob is mostly better...still coughing a bit and runny nose on and off. Doug hasn't gotten the head cold, but he has been achy and just generally feeling kind of under the weather for the last week or so as well.
Finally, I am scheduled to have a port put in Wednesday the 28th. I MUST be over this cold, and I want everything to go well. I have toughed out a lot of bad treatments with the plasmapheresis, but this last one was just too much. I have never wanted a port. The risk of infection, of it clotting, not working, having to be replaced too soon, etc. But my veins are revolting, so after 11 years, I think it's time. I would very much appreciate your prayers for that as well.
So thanks everyone....as you can tell I kind of have a lot on my plate right now, and knowing you all are praying helps me SO much.
