So today we got the results of my dad's lung biopsy. We have been waiting a few weeks to have some sort of idea what's going on. They tell us it's cancer, they tell us they aren't sure, they tell us he needs more tests.

Today they told us.

They told us that it's "a bad cancer" and "too extensive for surgery" and that it has reached his connecting lymphnodes. Also that it may have affected his liver. I'm not sure, this was all a blur when my mom read it to me. They see a specialist this next week. I believe they've said he needs chemotherapy, and radiation. I don't know what he'll do. It's his choice, and I respect whatever choice he makes. If he decides that chemo will ruin his quality of life, then I will respect that. I want him to live a happy life, for however long he is here.

Thanks for your prayers, keep them coming. His name is Ron.

Dear Jonny I wish I could express how this makes me feel in words, but I can't. Know that I'm praying with everything I've got. Cancer has killed in my family before and I worry everyday it will kill my Dad. It rips my heart to shreds to hear this.
