Fellow IE members, let me tell you that cancer sucks. As some of you may have read from a post I had put up back a couple of months ago, one of my brothers in law had been diagnosed w cancer. He continues to battle it every day and I truly believe (as does he) that he will beat it. We have in fact made a pact to ride the Trek Across Maine again next summer as a way to celebrate his victory.
To go along with this, my step daughters father is battling brain cancer, and he will soon be going into hospice care. Needless to say, my step daughter is devastated. This is not the whole reason I write this post tonight.
At 4:00 this afternoon, I received a call from my younger brother. It was a call I hope none of you ever have to receive. He was letting me know that my next oldest brother (18 months older than me) was diagnosed today w pancreatic cancer. It has already spread to one of his lungs. He has been suffering in pain for a few months but hadn't been to a doctor until last week, when he went in and had some blood work. Results looked ok, but doctor said she needed a CT Scan to figure out what the mass was in his abdomine. Now we know. The initial prognosis is grim.
Tomorrow I'll take him and my mother to the hospital to meet w an oncologist. It doesn't sound good. At this point in time my wife, my stepdaughter and myself all have blood relatives that are battling cancer. This disease sucks. Please say a prayer for my brother, my brother in law and my stepdaughters father. We need some miracles. God Bless all of you and God Bless my family.
In a former life, he was himself. If opportunity knocked and he wasn't home, opportunity waited. As a boy, he gave his father "the talk".
