Prayers please

Last week, we found out my dad has stage 4 bladder cancer that has metastisized (spell?) to his liver, some lymph nodes, and some bones. He was told 6 to 8 weeks with out treatment but 6 to 12 months with treatment. He has chosen treatment but it has been delayed due to surgery . He had a tumor in his leg that had weakened the bone so much they were afraid he would break a bone which would set back treatment. He had a rod put in his leg successfully but is recovering slower than expected . His chemo has been postponed a week and he is in a rehab facility.

We have already booked and have adrs for our annual trip in Oct. He keeps saying he is going! I just hope that is true. I would rather have my dad alive than go to disney but I am hoping that goal will give him something to look forward to and fight for.


I know cancer is a crazy thing and what the dr says is just a guess but it is still hard to comprehend.
