    I've wanted to post this since Monday, but just haven't had time, so this will be a bit of a short one. Since Nov. 2017, my Dad has been battling colon cancer which went stage 4 and spread to his liver. Dad's recent scan results came back and there is another spot on his liver, so they are going to do another ablation to remove it. Cleveland Clinic ended up having an opening in the schedule for this Friday, so we have been rushing to get everything set up. He takes off Thursday, too, and goes up for blood tests and then stays at a hotel that night, getting up early Friday to shuttle to the clinic and the procedure happens that morning. They keep him overnight, and then we pick him up Saturday, Lord willing, if there are no complications. He will go back to work Monday or Tuesday, depending how he feels.

    So, I thought I would ask for any of you who care to, to please keep him and all the hospital people and the three of us in prayer, as we all deal with this again. Also, that this might be the last time.

    God Bless,

    Thanks to all! He came through surgery great. Kept him Friday night and Saturday morning, and then we went and picked him up Saturday afternoon. He has done pretty well today, just been a bit tired and stuff. He will stay home from work tomorrow, too, and then we'll see how he is tomorrow before saying if he goes back to work Tuesday or after.

    Thanks to all, and keep the prayers coming! It is 72 hours before the blood clot is absorbed, so you have to be very careful with any movements using any muscles on the liver side. And Dad isn't always that mindful or stuff like that. -grin-

    He will have another scan in a month to see if they got it all and how it looks. Then, more scans three months after that like normal, to see if there is more cancer anywhere. We pray not! Maybe this will be the last time!

    God Bless,
