And... another update.

Guys. Thank you so much for your love and prayers for my dad. And for your comments. They help.

His procedure went well yesterday, but the results showed that he does have lymphoma cancer. We don't know what type/stage yet... hopefully we'll know more by the end of this week. I'll keep you posted. Please keep praying.

So... tomorrow's my birthday... and my dad's. I mean, I've spent three birthdays away from home, but this year, in light of all this, it just feels weird not being home. At the same time, I'm kind of.. numb? Life has been so up and down, I don't know what to feel. I guess I'm just being guarded until I know more information.

But again... thank you for being there and for caring.

Blakie, I haven't been on your blog for awhile and came by today to wish you a happy birthday...and discovered what's going on with your dad!! Wow. Please keep us updated, and I'll definitely be praying. My bro had leukemia - not the same situation by any means, but in the same ballpark - and I remember a whole range of emotions: Scared, angry, numb, even jealous (because of all the attention. stupid me!). It's tough. And, like you said in a post, God is sovereign. You can rest in God's character, even when you have no idea what tomorrow holds.
This is getting too long. I love you and am praying for you!
