My Dad

My dad made it through the surgery, but unfortunately they could not remove the tumor. It had grown into the bone and the surgeon was afraid he would bleed out if they cut into it.

So we have been granted some extra time with my father, however, he will go through a very slow and painful time toward the end.

Gotta run. Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts!

Hello Leslie,

My heart is weeping for you and your family.
This news about your dad is heart wrenching.

Your plate is full with Kevin...

So its time for other members of the family to begin the research into new drugs and treatments then getting with Dad and his doctors to discuss it and find out if any of these could be used.
One never knows what will or won't work if one doesn't try.

Prayers are being said for the family during this time.

Have you considered calling Cancer Centers of America ? I hear they are wonderful and people are still living who were given very short terminations on their life. They are supposed to be unbelievable.

Just a thought...of hope.
