Dad had his biopsy today

My Daddy is home and feeling fine. We should hear something in about 5 days. Meanwhile, me and the menfolk here have been busily landscaping the backyard...or I should say xeriscaping (desert plants). You guys will not even recognize the back portal...member the one Fae is supposed to help me clean when she comes to visit? Well, no more woman...it'll be so purty that you will forget what it looked like before! The only problem is that DH thinks all of his ideas are better than mine. We're not getting along very well this week. Dan's graduation is this Saturday, so hopefully by then we'll be friends again... *g*

I just finished watching Oprah's "Legend's Ball." ...and I balled alright ;o) Oprah is just cool. I'd love to be her friend...*smile*

He's supposed to be all grown up anyway...hehe, last week he got mad at me cuz I was doing my usual bugging him...ya know tickling and poking. I guess I can only pick on Evan now. It's not an easy thing to give up...we've been wrestling and tickling since they were babies.

Thank you for thinking of my Dad. I can always count on you Kath :o) He needs to buy a new bed, but he says he's holding off until he makes sure he's going to be around a little bit longer.

I'll go take some pics of the backyard now ;o)

When I come to visit what the heck am I supposed to do now? Just lay around and enjoy myself?? :)

I'm hoping for good news on your dad's biopsy. Keep us posted!

Congrats to the Danster! (lol - I'm sure he'd HATE being called that... I know I hated it when my sister would call me Fae-zer)

Hey...one of our newest finchie is name Phazer......cause he sounds like a phazer gun. Maybe I should change the spelling of it to Faezer *eg*

Kids do grow up Barb....says she who never had any. I bet seeing them as grown up and not picking on them has got to be one hard thing. But...I ahve a feeling your young men are men to be very proud of.

Can you guys believe I just now got on the puter? The kids are just plain hogging them...playing their nutty games. I promise to post the pics as soon as I can...

Thanks Fae...oh, and don't worry...you think that's the only thing that needed organizing and cleaning?? *g* I promise not to disappoint...hehe...

Just to let you guys know that my Dad got the results of his biopsy on Thursday. They said he has had prostate cancer for 5 to 10 years already. He will be going in on June 2nd for more tests, the day after his birthday :o(

Fae said...

Oh no! :( I'm sorry hon... Did they say if it had moved out of the prostate at all? But I guess that's what the other tests are to determine.

I've got my fingers crossed and my prayers lined up for you all. xoxo

Thanks Fae, he's going to need the prayers and good vibes. Anyone reading please send them this way...

I'm assuming that what the tests are for on Friday. We're going to visit him today or tomorrow.
