My parents were here a week ago to see our Jenna in her high school musical. Dad wasn't doing great - moving slow, not focused, etc. Mom took dad to the doctor when they got back to East Texas and they found dad to have stage 4 lung cancer and a mass in his brain. I need prayers for the brain surgery Tuesday morning as they remove the 3 inch tumor from his brain. The tumor is in the best place possible for a tumor -we are just praying for a very successful surgery with no complications. My 2nd prayer is that dad is a genetic match for a drug they want to give him. This drug attacks only the bad cells in his body unlike chemo that attacks both the bad and the good.
His his still witty and giving the nurses a bad time. Everyone always loves "Potter". Potter is my maiden name but dad has gone by Potter for as long as I can remember. He is eating well and doing okay - we just need a successful surgery and for dad to be a genetic match with this drug.
I am flying to Texas tomorrow to be with everyone. I probably won't be blogging for a while or I may can sneak in a few while I am at my moms.
Thank you for your prayers and support! I Love my Dad!
