Dad is getting a little stronger every day. He isn't crazy about my little blogger updates but I know some of you are wondering.
His official diagnosis is Classic Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He starts chemotherapy soon which will consist of two hours every other week for six months. He has had more CT scans, a bone marrow test and will have a PET scan to determine the staging.
The doctors are all still extremely optimistic about his prognosis even without knowing the staging, yet. Even though it sounds pretty nasty, they assure us this is a highly curable form of cancer.
Once again, mom and dad (and all of us) want to thank everyone for all of the prayers and good wishes and especially for the e-mails you guys sent when he was in Methodist Hospital. They were a real boost at the perfect time.
