My dad hasn't been feeling well for about 3 weeks. Didn't want to get out of bed, wasn't hungry, wasn't thirsty, didn't want to do anything. Had a headache that wouldn't really go away, even with Vicadin. Mom finally forced him to go to the emergency room on Friday. CT Scan showed a mass in his frontal lobe. So they drove him to the Hospital in Sacramento (an hour from home). He underwent brain surgery this morning at 8 am. They removed a tumor from his brain. and the doctor wasn't in the good news giving mood. He called it a grade 4 astrocytoma. Basically his prognosis was my dad has a year to live at best. So your thoughts and prayers would be greatly appreciated.

That blows, jwb. Best wishes and prayers. We're here for you.

Gods. I'm really sorry, JWB -- I don't know what to say, other than that I hope better for him than the doctor does.

Without that surgery, I gather he wouldn't have even had the year. Hopefully he will be able to come to terms with it and make full use of the time he has left.

We will give you hugs when you need them.

He is in the recovery room and doing as well as can be expected. He still doesn't know about the tumor itself. He knows he had brain surgery but the doctors are waiting for the results of this morning's MRI to give him the full story and we'll go from there. Still hoping for better news than Sunday's. Thank you for all the hugs and well wishes. It is good to have friends and family when you need them and I need them :). Thank you all again
