Again, thanks for all the support, prayers, and well wishes everyone. My Dad was actually released from the hospital today but now my mom's knee has given out and she can't walk. This may be a result of internalized stress over my Dad's ongoing health concerns. Please add my mom to your prayers. Thank you.
I have added your mom to my prayer list. I pray nightly with my son, and now I will add her to our nightly regime.

Respectfully,

Stuart

So after visiting with three specialists at VGH today, we learned my Dad has 2 types of colon cancer (most of it removed with 80% of his colon) and an aggressive form of lymphoma, which they will have to treat with an aggressive program of chemo. My Mom is getting a bit better, but still unable to walk unaided.

Chemo went well with minimal discomfort but CT scan revealed a few cancer cells left so starting Aug 12 he will undergo 4 weeks of radiation w 5 treatments per week (20 in total). Please continue to pray for my Dad that he'll come through this well and finally be cancer free.

So update on my Dad's condition:

He finished his radiation treatments last week and is feeling good. He tires more easily and takes more naps, but he went through both chemo & radiation without any serious side effects other than being tired after each treatment. Took him for his bloodwork on Monday and we are awaiting results. In a week or 2, we'll be taking him for other tests to see if the radiation killed off any cancer cells which had survived the chemo treatments.

I want to thank all of you for your well-wishes and positive thoughts & prayers for my Dad during this very trying time. He & my Mom have been remarkably healthy all their lives but now at 80 & 82, time is catching up with them as it does with all of us. Please continue praying for my Dad that his cancer will be in full remission and he can spend his time gaining back his weight, enjoying his golden years, and spending time with his granddaughters (my girls).

Sincerely,

Anthony

All the best Anthony with your dad! Noticed you are shutting one of your fowlr tanks. That's too bad. Might text you a message for a seed live rock. Also,
Daniel ( Carrea75) says hi.. I just bought a light off him this week and he remembers you as you in Burnaby. Unfortnately, he too is shutting it down with his tank soon.
