When we were at the Mayo clinic with my ds for his biospy last month. I was very hurt by the fact that my parents didn't come from Florida. Their excuse was that my dad had a Dr.'s appt.?? I asked right away is everything ok with dad? and I was told yes, that they were going to wait to see what the biopsy told us before they came home. (well, we're still waiting for that) I was in a horrible state of mind that week at Mayo.
It wasn't til I got home that I cried to my sister that I couldn't believe mom and dad didn't come, and that I really needed my "mommy". Well, my sister finally told me that our dad was going to have a biopsy and they didn't want to tell anyone and she was sworn to secrecy but knew how bad I felt so she told me. That made more sense to me. Although, I was concerned for my dad, I now knew they had a good reason to not be there. My mom then told us everything was fine, false alarm, etc.
My mom called last night and said that she lied. That my dad does have prostate cancer, but they didn't want to say anything yet til they found out more about biopsy and treatment. She said its small and they caught it early. He is going to be starting radiation treatments this summer. No surgery, just radiation. Still wonder if mom is telling us everything? she says she is.
So, now I need to ask for more prayers for my father. I just know all the prayers have help in Sam's case and I know they will for my dad too.
I just keep thinking, we've been so lucky with health in our family til now. I going to put this one in God's hands too. I know he'll pull us through.
Thanks in advance, AGAIN>
