It's Offical

My mother called me Thursday afternoon at work. My father has lung cancer. She says she told me, but she did not. They always called it spots or tumors, never cancer. I felt like I was punched in the gut. I wanted to cry, but didn't. I have no idea what stage it is in. I guess I should have figured it out from all the doctor's visits and treatments. I can't believe she mentioned it so casually, like she was talking about his eye color or something. I'm kinda stunned but not surprised. I'm shaken a bit by it. I knew his other problems were serious, but this adds a whole knew dimension to the worry.

Dave I am so sorry to hear about this.

I lost my stepfather of 30 years last year to lung cancer.

Blessings be on you and your family mate.

Shalom

I am sorry
When the emotions settle a bit, get the facts, the options and what can be done. It will help with the run away 'what ifs' that can't all be true.
And keep in mind no one is alone going through this.
Keep us updated.

So sorry to hear it, Dave. Both my parents were taken away suddenly, no time for goodbyes. Whatever happens with your dad, at least you have a chance to prepare and say all that needs saying. Bless you all.
