How about some good news

How about some good news

I wanted to share some good news with everyone.  As you know, my grandfather was in the hospital and ended up needing to have a tumor removed a few weeks ago.

It turns out that not only does he have prostate cancer but it has spread to his pelvis.

My parents and the rest of my Mother’s siblings met with the doctor yesterday to discuss options and figure out prognosis. Everyone had questions and obviously concerns.


While his particular form of cancer is pretty aggressive, they are going to begin a hormone treatment that is expected to basically put him in remission. They aren’t promising anything because they can’t.

However, my grandfather is pushing 90 and is otherwise in good health. 

The long and short of it is that they don’t expect the cancer to affect whatever time God has assigned him. Of course, that is subject to change and we all know that. 

With that said, this is much, much better news than anyone had been expecting.  To say that we are all grateful is an understatement of a lifetime..

My grandfather is super cool and even drives a suped up Dodge Charger. He’s got plenty of time left on his clock and we are more than grateful to spend it with him.

I wanted to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers.
