OK. I promised to share.
My Dad has lung cancer.
That's not why I did the Father's Day post, I had been planning on writing him a letter before the bad news. Mom said - do it anyway, so I did.
The CAT scan showed a 6 cm tumor, anyone familiar with tumors knows this is huge. The CAT scan also showed that the lymph nodes are involved.
He had the biopsy yesterday. Results on Wed. He suffered a partially collapsed lung from the biopsy. God bless him - he wanted to vaccuum the newly installed carpet in my Grandmothers downstairs Apt., Mom put a stop to that.
PET scan today (that's when they inject the radioactive dye to see how far the SOB has spread).
He'll also have a bone scan and a head CT done.
He'll be starting radiation & chemo ASAP.
I wasn't shittin around when I said it's bad. Anyone that's read some of my Superdad posts knows I'm a Daddy's girl. This is just breaking my heart.
That's all for now.
