No good news on a monday

Well as you can tell my dad's news was not good. We dont know how bad it is yet or what kind of treatment options he has. It really sucks, and there is not much more to say about it, I need to get up there to see him soon but I am not sure when/how/why. Hubby wants to go too but someone has to stay here with the dogs, I dont see me finding a good dogsitter on the spur of the moment.

Funny story...kinda. I cried so much last night and was really congested (I stay congested but it was worse last night) that after we went to bed, the Canadian woke me up and told me "The neighbors called, your snoring is keeping them awake" LOL. Poor guy.

Everyone is asking about my biopsy results but they just gave me an appointment for Nov 8, I havent seen the doctor yet. So I dont the results yet. I am just thrilled to have been granted an audience with the Wizard. Really, Dorothy had an easier time getting to the Emerald City than I had trying to get this appointment!

So I had a really bad monday, work was crazy and my dads news. I am hopring today is a bit better,

my thoughts are with you. I lost my Dad to that when I was six. But that was in 1979!! Do not lose hope. My brother just beat another kind of cancer and is more healthy now than ever.

I'm sorry to hear of this Mel, we could only hope for the best and we can still pray that they found it early and they can intervene. Modern medicine is amazing.

Many prayers for healing and peace to be with you and your family!

I wish I was there to help take care of your dogs. I love dogs and you know my story with my sister having lung cancer at the ripe old age of 25, and she was a non-smoker!

I sent you an email with some links that might be helpful. I promise I will visit more. I had 26 entries to catch up on with you, and I just read them all!

Remember, even though your dad smoked, he doesn't deserve this. Try to keep a positive attitude and remember there is always hope!

I am going to post on Laurianne's Hope and my blog for your dad. You are in my thoughts!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family. CANCER SUCKS!!
Lynda and I bought a nice card for Laurianne when she was in the hospital and for some reason we never gave it to her. Now we have it in a frame next to her picture and remember the following:

What Cancer Can Not Do

Cancer is so limited
It cannot cripple Love
It cannot shatter Hope
It cannot corrode Faith
It cannot destroy Peace
It cannot kill Friendship
It cannot suppress Memories
It cannot silence Courage
It cannot invade the Soul
It cannot steal eternal Life
It cannot conquer the Spirit

I am so sorry to hear the news. I read your post a couple of days ago and was speachless as to what to say. Please forgive me.
My mother had lung cancer too. I am no stranger to the wild range of emotions you are going through right now.

Our family motto was: "Hope for the best, prepare for the worse"

I am keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.

I am here for you.
