Prayer Request
My mom sent me an e-mail today (my phone is broken) with this information....

"Dad got the results back from his test. He has a progressive (fast growing) prostate cancer. Monday they are going to schedule a CT scan and a bone scan. They checking to see if it has gone to his bones. We are going to be at cokato,MN this weekend. Will email you when we get home. Mom wish I had better news."

Any and all prayers would be appreciated.

oh my- prayers for you all. my dad is now undergoing daily radiation for his prostate cancer. his is intermediate but not yet spread. once the treatment is set up it isn't too bad. he has about 3 more weeks left of this first round to go. I hope the tests go as well as they can.
