cancer sucks

My dad goes in for surgery Tuesday morning and good vibes, positive thoughts, prayers are all welcome!

Long story short, a spot was found on his lung during prep for a knee surgery. Several tests later, the knee surgery was cancelled and dad was told he had lung cancer. Further tests show it hasn’t spread, thank goodness so Tuesday’s surgery is the next step. He’ll be in ICU for a day or two, home perhaps as early as a week after the surgery.  That’s about as far out as we’re all even *thinking* at this stage, but obviously the *best* news would be the surgery is all that’s needed.

The Child & I head to the farm tomorrow night to help out with the dogs & just generally be round. and I’ll be offline during that time.

Thanks for any thoughts!
