The big C

I found out last night... my dad has cancer. My Daddy... one of my best friends... the person I have shared the most with... one of the people I am closest to... one of the most important persons in my life... has cancer. It is prostate cancer. I hear... if you are going to get cancer, that is the kind to have. It is one of the most easily treated. For that I am grateful.

He is my Daddy. I have looked up to him forever. It feels like a brick hit me. He is a fighter. He will be fine. I know he will. He is my Daddy... he has cancer... and he will be fine.

Courtney... I am so sorry to hear about your father. I will pray for a speedy recovery. Tom's grandfather had it and he has been in remission for 7 years.

Yes - he will be fine. Actually, he will be more than fine - he will be great! Especially with all the love and support he will have from his friends and obviously wonderful family.

Courtney - our love, thoughts and prayers and with you and with your father. You have the right attitude but so know what you are mean when you say ... it's my Daddy... For some it's the daddy some the mummy - but (if we are lucky) these are the indestructible pillars in our lives. Hang in there my friend. Keep us posted. And on a much brighter note - could those babies be any cuter. Enjoy them.
