On Thursday I received very disturbing news from my father. As many of you know, or don't know, he has Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and has been doing fairly well since diagnosed in 2001. However, it turns out that his health has taken a turn for the worse. We will know exactly on September 23rd the results of next Wednesday's biopsy ~ either he has mantle cell or group b cell lymphoma. Mantle cell has no treatment and his life expectancy would be 3-5 years. Group B cell would result in aggressive chemo. To make matters worse, he had a colonoscopy which showed a lesion, cancerous of course. They will try chemo on it, but if it doesn't respond they will have to do surgery.

So, I am devastated to say the least.
