Dad's Diagnosis 2010

As many of you have heard, my dad is sick, though he currently feels and looks great. He was in the hospital Monday-Wednesday, but they sent him home temporarily while the doctors await the results of his tests. Kevin and I went to visit this weekend at my parents' home and had a nice home-cooked meal with them. Dad will be starting treatment soon, and I will try to keep you updated. Thank you for all your kind wishes and calls and emails. I love you guys too. That's why I keep this blog, to remember all the wonderful times with all of you.

Update: The diagnosis is kidney cancer in his brain, lungs, and kidney. As some of you know, dad had kidney cancer 11 years ago and had one kidney removed. This is a recurrence. The brain tumor was what warned us, as cancer is typically silent. We are very hopeful about the treatment which will begin next week.

Erica, there is a site called caringbridge.org where you can document what's going on, your dad can write on it, too. People can write encouraging messages to your dad, as well. It is a good way for people to keep in touch, know what is going on, and provide support. Please know that I have been praying like crazy for your dad, mom and you. Much love . . . Kathy
