I have to say thank you to all of my blogging friends. You are amazing and your outpouring of support for my father and my family leaves me speechless. There is a sense of family among bloggers, that you don't find in many places, even in real life.
My father goes for the scan on his chest (the area of his original cancer) today, that was scheduled for a month. Once that is complete, the radiologist will read both reports (chest and head) and give my dad his options. It will be a rough couple of days.
I am glad to say that my father is in excellent spirits. My mother and I were talking yesterday, and we both believe he knew it was going on. She has seen slight changes in him over the last couple months, and if she saw them, I am sure he recognized them as well.
Between the seizure on Saturday, and the medication they have him on, he is showing a bit of aphasia. He knows the words he wants to say, but is a bit foggy when it actually comes to retrieving them. So, we wait while he finds the words. But he is joking with us all.
This coming Sunday is their anniversary. 47 years. I will be cooking dinner and both my brother's and their families will be there so we can celebrate. Nothing fancy. Just family being together. We all need it.
Again, thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers. They mean more than you can ever know.
