He does indeed have lung cancer. It hasn't spread yet, and the doctor seemed optomistic. But my dad said at 87 he didn't want to go through the chemo and anything else. I'm glad I'll be there in six days, because his appointment to see the specialist is while I'm there. We'll find out what to expect next and see what the outlook is. I'm depressed somewhat, but yet know that I've had my dad longer then many people have, so I mustn't complain.
My sister wrote and thinks that my mother has had a slight stroke or something. She's acting very weird. (sigh) I'll take her in while I'm there and we'll find out what's happening. Getting old is not for wusses.
