    Well we just got back from Tulsa on Monday. My father in law has been real sick lately. The doctors ran some tests and found out that he has a form of cancer called lymphoma .

    My father in law has been in and out of the hospital for over a year with the signs and symptoms, but they never checked him for cancer.

    He is a strong man and he will fight it. He will be in the hospital until at least the first of the year.

    If anyone is interested, a blood bank has been set up in his name and anyone (anywhere in the US) can donate blood to his bank. PM me for the details. I am trying my best to help him out and to offset the expensive cost involved, so if you have some ideas, please post them.

    Please remember him tonight when you say your prayers.

    Bob


    We just got back from Tulsa again............. My father in law passed away on 11/11/04. 4 days after being diagnosed. I will fill you all in on Sat. I am beat down tired.

    Re: I need your thoughts and prayers.

    Sorry for the news. My father has been battling Prostate cancer since he was notified that he had it on 28 Jan 94. He's had lots of radiation, expirimental meds, standard meds, and now chemo. His #'s are currently 81, which is far from the ideal 2.5. Anyway, the doctors told him in 94 that if he didn't do anything, he'd make 6 years. As you can see, he's coming up on 12 in January. Tell you dad-n-law to listen to the doctors and do what he needs to do. As for my dad, they told him more people die with prostate cancer than because of it.

    you got my prayers brother. i've been there, only it was my grandpa. treated him for about 6 months for a back injury before they realized he had cancer in his spine. wanted to strangle the doctors for the longest time for missing something like that. hopefully your story turns out better than mine.

    exactly the way i felt when i lost my grandpa. sure, i felt the pain of losing my grandpa and my best friend, but i saw the pain he was in the day before he passed. it was more of a relief to see that he wasnt going through that anymore.
