Hello friends! Some of you may remember back in July when I asked for prayer as my father was facing some tests -- well, I apologize for the delay in posting any updates, but to be perfectly frank this summer has been INSANE...and I will not be sorry to see the end of it. Thank you to everyone who has made inquiries here or on Facebook -- they have been SO appreciated!
To make a long story short, my dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer. After several weeks of tests to determine whether or not the cancer was localized or had spread (and INTERMINABLE waits for test results), his doctors feel confident that the cancer is contained (PRAISE GOD) and decided on a course of treatment -- removing the prostate. That surgery is (FINALLY) tomorrow morning. I can hardly begin to tell you how relieved I am to finally come to the surgery eve. God's fingerprints have been all over dad's case, but I would ask for your continued prayers for the surgery tomorrow and that the doctors are able to determine that the cancer is contained and get it all (if that bears out, dad won't need radiation follow-up).
Thank you SO much for hanging with me this crazy summer, blogging friends! I am so grateful to each and every one of you for the friendship and support!
