It's been a good week but now I have a prayer request to ask of anyone who reads here.
Please keep my dad in your prayers. About a year and a half ago he was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of prostate cancer - not your typical prostate cancer and not good news. He began treatments and responded remarkably well. You would have never known he was sick because he kept busy with all of his usual projects - he even bought a house, gutted it and remodeled it. He also went on a mission trip with us this summer. He got tired a bit quicker than normal but then that's to be expected with radiation and hormone therapy.
A month ago he got bad news. His PSA was higher than it has been. They waited a month and then took it again to make sure the test wasn't faulty. It wasn't. It's even higher now. So they have started him on Casodex along with the injections he's already taking.
According to the info that came along with the meds, came a "days to death" chart. That was/is a bit unsettling and I think it has him scared. It's scary for me too. Scary to think about losing my dad (I've always been "daddy's girl") and scary to think of what he might go through in the process. Certainly he has always been healthy and still is quite strong so that is on his side. More importantly prayer is on his side. So I'm asking you to put him on your list and remember him in prayer. Thanks so much!
