Thanks for all the support on this site. we all are in a tough spot, from different parts of the country, different perspectives, different roles (caregiver, family member, etc).

My dad's surgery is now Monday 12/7 at Duke. I will be there with my mom and my brother and sister will be there at least by the evening. We are coming from different states so it will be a challenge. We are worried but hope that his overall great health before diagnosis will help him.

I will try to update as I can. I also have many others on this site in my prayers nightly. For all of those struggling---take it one day at a time---if that doesn't work, take it one hour at a time.... you will make it.

Kim,

Be sure and take your big girl panties with you as you will need them to get through everything. Is your Dad having the open surgery or the invasive surgery. Just remember we all have been there and know what you are going through. I will pray for you during his surgery. Please know he is in the hands of GOD and GOD will get him through everything.

We lost another loved one on this site, so we need to continue prayers.

Your dad will do good. Keep in touch
