Update on Dad

I had asked for prayers for my dad several months ago. If you remember that far back! Anyway, he had his check up last week and got the results this week. They said his cancer had grown a bit, but not enough to warrant starting treatment right now. They said come back in 4 months. That was very good news! Also, next month a new pill will be approved for his type of cancer. It is the first new treatment for this cancer in over 30 years. The side effects sound small and so in four months if he has to begin treatment, it will probably be that.

Now, Dad was up all last night with stomach cramps. He's headed to his regular doctor this morning to see what's going on. So....he still needs prayer. I hope it's nothing major at all and of course, unrelated to his cancer. He was planning on going out of town this weekend, so I pray that the doctor knows for absolute sure what is going on so dad can make the best decision about leaving town or not. Not many docs where he's headed....

Thank you, bloggy friends, for praying for complete stranger!


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
