Thank you!

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments.  I could really feel the love flowing from the blogosphere.  I got a lot of blog hits this past week and even a couple of new followers.

So...  It's official, my father has liver cancer.  He's already survived kidney and skin cancer but I don't think he's going to be able to pull through this one.  We've already been told it's very agressive and incurable.  It can be slowed but not cured. 

He's been released from the hospital and is now at a rehab center for physical therapy to rebuild his strength.  We're not sure how long he'll be there; he's still very weak.  He's doing significantly better though and is about 95% coherent now with only mild confusion. 

We're waiting for the oncologist to contact us to go in and discuss his options.  My mom didn't even want to do the biopsy but I was very insistent on it.  My father was not in a position at the time to be making medical decisions for himself  and I'm listed as second on his medical power of attorney so I won that fight.  I just want to know in my heart that when he passes, that we were informed of all of his options and that we did everything we could for him. 

I don't know when I'll get to blog again but I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all of your support and your kind comments.  I'll get around to visiting everyone when I can.
