Dad went for his checkup today...

the news wasn't that good. THe doctor said, yes the mass had shrunk last time and dad was doing so well, but this time, the mass if larger and he told dad that he wouldn't have to come back in again for another visit. There was nothing left to do. When the time comes they will notify hospice and they will help mom and dad. We all knew that lung cancer wasn't going to get better, but we had hoped. Dad is doing great. He said that he's ready whenever the Lord wants him and if he wants him to stay longer, then he will stay as strong as he can for mom. Looks like I'll be making some extra trips to New Mexico in the next six months or so. Say a little prayer for him, if you could. He could use them, I'm sure.

Hugs, Patt

It's difficult and no words really make it better.
You know you can email me anytime, btw, if you need to talk.

I'm doing pretty well. WE all know that we have to visit more often now and have the grandkids make a trip to see him. Just in case. It'll probably scare him to see all of the grandkids coming at the same time, so we're all working this out so we won't alarm him or mom.

I think it's wise to stagger the grandkid schedule.

How's your mom doing with all this?
