Happy Birthday...what treatment!

My Grandma N, my mom's mom, is turning 90 at the end of August. That's a big deal! My mom's siblings are all getting together at my uncle's house in VA that weekend to have a party and a reunion of sorts.

When Dad first found out about his cancer, he was leaning toward having surgery. And in doing so, he found out that he would need to be off of work for three weeks for recovery. Well, that would eat up all of his pto time and make it so that he would not be able to make the trip to VA for Grandma's birthday. Mom was still planning to go if she could get a ride with one of her brothers, who lives on the other side of the same county.

Well, from what I understand, Dad met with the radiation oncologist this week and is now leaning toward a course of radiation. That will begin, from what I gather, after they return from VA next month.

It is also my understanding that radiation will be something like five days a week for eight weeks, or something. Whew.

Continued prayers are appreciated.

You and your family will continue to be in my prayers! I'm sure it will be a wonderful celebration for your Grandma! My Grandma made it to 97!

I am so glad that it will work out that they can go still.

Praying for you!
