My Da

My Da is a great man. I wish people were more like him. Funny, intelligent, loving in his way, and did I mention funny?

He had been diagnosed with cancer about 6 or so months ago. This was devastating, but no quite as much as finding out that my Da didn't want me by his side. I now understand why he didn't want me to go from Austin TX to Youngstown OH, as I did need to take care of things down here.

Now, he has had a complication with the type of cancer he has, superior vena cava syndrome.

An excerpt from the link above concerning mortality:
In contrast, patients with untreated malignant SVCS survive only approximately 30 days.

The Docs cannot treat it, it'd cause too many other complications. So 30 days.

Needless to say, I am smashed...[pout]

So I'm taking a greyhound from Austin TX to Youngstown OH, it'll take awhile about a day, but I don't care...

I just want to see him and give him a huge hug.
