Grandpa Has Cancer

Well grandpa's back has really been hurting him for a month now and he was able to get by. Then he was progressing it seemed like and now this. Last night he yelled and i went in and he couldnt get up out of bed so we helped him up and he was in so much pain so we called the unit because i didnt want to try to get him in a vechile and then get out etc... so we got him layed on the stretcher and I rode in with the unit to the hospital. we began the series of questions from the doctors and did some minor testing. So i left there about mid night and this morning my grandma calls me telling me its cancer. So at this point we dont know what kind it is yet. They took samples of his spinal fluid, bone marrow, and various other tests. I am just telling you this because a few of you guys have meet him at Dallas Fort Worth meet in april. If you dont remember who i am talking about here is a few pics from DFW. ps. I dont want you guys feeling sorry for me i just wanted to inform you of what is going on.

Hey man...not time for anybody to feel sorry for anybody! It's time to pray. My wife is battling cancer right now and the prayers from all the concerned org. members, family and friends has done miracles.

He is now on my prayer list and I bet before the night is over he will be on a dozen more. He is not alone. Tell him.

Good luck.
