Sorry to say, I have nothing remotely funny or creative to say today. Apparently, we jumped the gun with our excitement over Dad's prognosis. We met with the oncologist and it's a far graver situation than we imagined.

As I mentioned, my father is the most optimistic person I know and it was devastating to see the disappointment in his face when the doctor gave us the news. Being the overly sensitive wimp that I am, I made an excuse to leave the exam room so I could compose myself and not let him see the tears that I just couldn't stop from coming.

If we ever needed a miracle, now would be the time.


  1. prayers and good wishes being offered for your dad....may a miracle be right around the corner.


  2. Chrissy - Im so sorry to hear that. I will be thinking of you and your family and hoping for your miracle

  3. Aw...(hug). We will pray for you and your family!

  4. Oh no. I'm new to your blog, so I don't know the situation. You both will be in my thoughts and prayers.

    And HUGE hug.
