    I am very sorry to hear that news and both Nate and my wishes are with both you and your father. When news like this happens, the first reaction is always to panic. Take a few deep breaths relax and find out what you can from the doctors - then take the steps necessary to help. While not specifically the same situation, I know the feeling when it comes to medical problems and ones close to you. Hang in there, stay positive and we will all be sending along good wishes.

    OOOOOOOOO, Princess Sweetie I am sooo sorry
    My Dh found out his mom had Pacreatic Cancer right after we moved into our new home. It was a rollercoaster ride of emotions to say the least.... I will keep you in my prayers....

    Oh, Perky...I am so sorry to hear this. It is very scary to learn that someone you love is ill...but to have them so far away too.

    I will keep you, your dad and your family in my thoughts.

    Princess, my heart goes Dad is in CA too, having just been diagnosed with lung cancer as I've blogged ad nauseum, and being here on the East Coast...AGH. Don't panic until you know more...many lymphomas are treatable, and there are great docs out there...and I'm sure he would want you and his grand kids to stay safe and be happy while he figures all this out. Horrible, isn't it?

    No one here cares about your spelling, right or wrong, just you and your Dad, and we care, kiddo. Love, light, prayers, all going your way.

  14. baselle Says:

    I am so sorry. Keep positive. Tomorrow, when you and your dad know more, will be better.

  15. princessperky Says:

    Thank you so much for all your thoughts prayers and hugs. I feel soo much better today.

    My wonderful husband found a neat website that talks about how treatable these things are now.

    The Dr Dad talked to yesterday said preliminary estimate is prpbable for treatment..which is better than poor Flashes 1%! So I guess if Dad managed to walk again after Drs told him he couldn't he aught to be able to beat this when they are giving him a 50/50 chance!

    We should know more soon, I'll keep you posted.

    I'm so sorry to read this. My mother had cancer five times and I found each time shocking and saddening. Here's to quick, effective treatment for your father. Hugs.

  21. lrjohnson Says:

    Perk: My thoughts are very much with you. I am hoping the prognosis is good, and that regardless of the diagnosis you will be able to see your father soon.

  22. LuckyRobin Says:

    I'm sorry. My mother was supposed to die of cancer 28 years ago. She refused. She always said that knowing was half the battle and attitude was the other half. Things have come a long way since then, medically. I pray your father will fight and win.

  23. princessperky Says:

    I am soo happy to hear of your survivor stories, Not only for you, but they make me feel like Dad can make it too.

    Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers.

    We found out nothing new yet, but I think he has an appointment with a 'cancer specialist' (err onocologist?) this week.
