I really have neglected this blog lately. Life just seems to get away from me.
I wanted to post an update on my dad. He has been having a lot of complications and bleeding that have landed him in ER numerous times. He went to Cleveland Clinic this week to see if they had better ideas to try to stop the bleeding. They did. We were encouraged and optimistic.
They did a surgical procedure today--thinking they would cauterize the tumors in his bladder that are bleeding.
The doctor was not able to get to the tumor(s). There was too much scar tissue and cancer. So...this means that he will have to live with the frequent bleeding episodes that cause incredible pain.
He does have the option of one more procedure that might possibly make him more comfortable but it would involve a major surgery.
I know my parents would appreciate prayer as they decide what to do...and just prayer in general as they walk this road of cancer.
We will be with him for Christmas and are going to try to make it a very special one.
