What's Been Going On

Many of you know that Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer at the end of January.  His tumor was found after he had an allergic reaction to a Z-Pack.  The following two months involved a lot of tests, waiting and uncertainty.  After many doctor's appointments and tests, including chest x-rays, CT scan, PET Scan, MRI, Bronoscopy and biopsies in the right and left lungs, we have been told that his lung cancer is Stage 3A (non-operable) and is confined to his left lung.  It is great news that it has not spread any where else.   

Dad has begun his first set of treatments- 7 weeks of once a week chemotherapy and 30 radiation treatments, 5 days a week.  So far things have been going well and dad is determined to continue working and living his normal life as much as possible.  

We plan to use this platform as a way to keep everyone informed and updated throughout this journey.  

We truly appreciate all of the love and prayers that so many of you have given our family throughout this process.
