Prayers for My Dad

For those of you that don't know, My Dad is battling inoperable pancreatic cancer.Praise the Lord he is doing very well right now. He went for a follow up scan today and will find out the results on Monday. He has been very distressed, worried and anxious about it. Please pray for him to be comforted during these next few days and for good results, Lord willing.

Here's the story...He was diagnosed on Dec. 26, 2007 and given about 6 months to live. It has been 6 months, and he is doing GREAT!! In fact, on his last CT scan, the cancer appeared to be dead. He has been to doctor's at MUSC and Duke for more opinions and those doctors as well as his doctors and nurses are in amazement at his progress. They can not medically explain it. One nurse hugged him, and with tears in her eyes said, "I think I am looking at a miracle. When you first started coming in here we didn't think you would be here with us very long." So, GOD IS AWESOME!!! Prayers and faith in our wonderful Lord has gotten him where he is today. It has been a hard road and he still has his bad days, but we are so Thankful God has given us a little more time with him. How long, we don't know. But none of us know how long we have left on this earth. We all need to cherish every moment we have with our loved ones and not take them for grantit because we never know when we may not have them with us on this earth anymore.

Daddy before he got sick on left and after he got sick on the right. You can see his jaudiced eyes and skin.
