    I need all you preyers right now. It is a long story so I will tell yall the short version.

    About 3 weeks ago my dad was diagnosed with cancer of the lower esophagus. He has been through several test since then.

    The good: No evidence of cancer in any of his lymph nodes or lungs.

    Bad: The stress tested showed some plaques in his heart so they did an angiogram last friday that showed about four area of blockage.

    They had scheduled esophageal surgery for tomorrow however once the angiogram came back they scheduled his for atleast a quadruple heart bypass.

    I am currently waiting while he is in surgery. They have internet access here and so I thought I would give yall an update. They are closing right now and we are waiting on the surgeon to come talk to us.

    The plan from here is that in about 4 weeks they will do the esophageal surgery so I will be right back in this waiting room then. Hopefully the cancer will not spread by that time.

    My next concern is that he will not be able to make to my wedding now. The wedding is scheduled for Oct 28th. Which is going to be close to his ultimate recovery.

    I guess we will pass that bridge as we come to it.

    But, please pray for him.
