A while ago, during my dad’s unexpected hospital visit one of the tests discovered a tumor on my dad’s pancreas. Since then, we have been praying to Our Lady of Lourdes and blessing ourselves with holy water. My dad has been putting his share on his stomach where the pancreas is located. He has had several doctor’s appointments and tests since then. There have been many conversations about what the next best step would be and many decisions to make. Since he has no symptoms at all and don’t want to make things worse, we have been taking it slow. My dad had a very important scan yesterday early in the morning in the city about an hour and a half away. We were very happy that is was a relatively uneventful and easy procedure. Today was the follow up with the doctor. We found out that it is the best case scenario – other than the tumor completely disappearing which is what my dad was praying for. The tumor is not an aggressive type of cancer. He will have scans every 6 months or so to see if there is any progression. The doctor said the cancer may just sit there and not cause any problems for weeks, months, years, or even a decade. My dad told her he was going to go home and live his life. And maybe take a cruise. She thought that was an excellent idea. Tonight, we said a thanksgiving prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes.
I Found God today in very good news about my dad’s health.
