Dad Update

It has been confirmed.

My father has stage three gall bladder cancer that has spread to his liver. This is a rare and aggressive cancer. They're planning on one or two courses of chemo, but will be discussing that further on January 5th. Because it has spread to his liver, they can't just pull out the gall bladder. Since my father is in otherwise-excellent shape, the doctor feels confident that he'll do okay. He sounds relatively calm, saying "we'll do what we have to do" and advising not to worry, "besides, I might survive the treatment, and then all the angst will be for nothing."

Thanks again for all the good thoughts and comments... I appreciate each and every one!
