My dad came through the surgery well today in spite of having a weak heart. It appears he did have a cancerous growth on his colon, and we will know for sure what type in a week or so. It was a tough day, but it was made so much easier because of the many prayers said on his behalf. Thank you to all who e-mailed or commented on this blog and to the many other people who were also praying today.
Some of my aunts and uncles were there at the hospital, too, all the way from Virginia. It was a bittersweet day, worrying about Dad but also enjoying the time spent with our family.
What a blessing you all are!
