A few months ago my Dad’s doctor noticed that his cancer markers were up a bit. Since he’d already decided not to treat again, my Dad didn’t do anything about it.
The other day he had some chest pains and was forgetting things like his age, so my sister sent him to the ER. They did a bunch of tests and found a couple pretty large masses on his liver. He’d had an MRI a couple months ago, and they saw something on his liver that might someday be something, so this shows pretty aggressive growth.
The doctor took a wild guess at 2-4 months for him.
After lots of tests and some monitoring he was back to normal, so they sent him home. He’s not in any more pain than he has been for the last few years with his back and knees etc.
I didn’t realize it, but once you get to this point you can take money from your life insurance plan before you die and do whatever with it. He’s looking at doing some adventuring in the next couple months.
Please pray for our family. He’s been the primary father figure for a couple of my nieces, and he’s the last parent for my sisters and I.
It’s going to be a tough spring.
