More News on My Dad

I’m afraid I have difficult news to share. Mom called me a little while ago, and I’m here to share it with you so you can know how to pray. John and Andrea (my sister and her husband) arrived, and Mom and Dad are heading back to Newberry now. The doctor who looked over the MRI is certain that Dad has cancer. I guess they can tell a lot from the MRI. The cancer is also inoperable, which means they are unable to remove it without causing damage to Dad’s brain and impairing him in some way. The good news is that there is no second tumor. There is only the one.

Next Tuesday, Mom and Dad are returning to Marquette for a biopsy early Wednesday morning. The purpose of the biopsy is to determine whether the cancer is aggressive or non-aggressive. If the tumor is aggressive, the doctor said Dad could have up to one year. If it’s non-aggressive, he could have up to three. The recommendation is chemotherapy or radiation. Dad is taking medication to decrease the brain swelling. He isn’t supposed to lift anything or drive. The pastor there has agreed to help with snow removal.

Mom and Dad have some decisions to make regarding where to go for treatment; Dad won’t be able to get the care he needs where they are now. They are considering getting care somewhere downstate or in Madison, Wisconsin. John and Andrea have graciously offered them a bedroom so they could stay with them for a while.

I can’t think of any other details right now. Please forgive me if I’ve left anything out. Of course, please be in prayer. God is in control of all things and always does the right thing for His good and ours.

    Dear Adam, I am so sorry about your Father’s tumor…I know he means a lot to you. With my own Father’s health issues, I can truly say I understand. However, my Father does not know the Lord. I am sure that is part of God’s taking us to Florida. I miss you all. By His grace, Marlys

    Hello to you who need prayer:
    I emailed to Larry and Rhoda, but they may not have received it (last week). We have been followers of alternate treatments for cancer. There are seemingy miraculous cures by treatments often regarded as insignificant and unscientific by the mainstream. The middle of the road approach includes MDs and DOs and Chiropractors. One who is close to mainstream is through Zion Hospital near Chicago. They are one of four “Cancer Centers” who recently advertised on TV. They “cured” two friends of ours. One of them is Dave Cropsey, a missionary from Dewitt Mich whom you may have heard of. Another noteworthy clinic is the Burzynski Clinic in Houston Texas, who have had statistically more success than the mainstream with brain cancer. You can find both on line and I would encourage you to check on them. God’s will will be done in any case. But never gove up on making the best choices given the information He has provided you. Much Prayer is going up for your return to good health.
    Because He first loved Us, Hayes and Vi
