Bad news
Smv finale Kents by lieslchen
My dad's urologist found some unusual DNA in his urine, which could be a sign of bladder cancer. He's going in for blood tests tomorrow, and there'll be another couple of tests, including a biopsy, in the next couple of weeks. We should know if it's cancer in about 3 weeks time.

Until we know what's up, Dad isn't telling my sister or any other relatives and friends what's going on. If it is cancer, and he needs extensive treatment, he thinks we should move back to NY. All of our close family is there, and we don't really have any ties here. (Dad and Ruth broke up a few weeks ago, the usual drama.)

I'm so scared. I'm trying not to get ahead of myself, it might not be cancer. But it could be, and that terrifies me.

I'm so sorry. We recently went through something similar with my father-in-law, and I think the waiting is the worst part. You wait to get an appointment, you wait for the results, and then you wait again to get another appointment for the next test, and the whole time you're imagining the worst possible outcome. I hope your father gets good news. *hugs*

Thank you, sweetie. I guess this is just taking me back to my mother's illness. She didn't fight, though, and I know Dad will, if the diagnosis is cancer. So that's something, I suppose.

Sorry to hear about this - you must be so worried. I hope that the results are good news.

Thank you. I hope so, too.

I'll send my best thoughts your dad's way.

Thank you so much, Rhi.

Oh, sweetie. I will be praying that it's not cancer, and if it is, that they've caught it early. I know how much you don't want to go through this again. I'm here if you need to vent. I know the waiting will be the worst part. *big hugs*

The waiting is absoulutely the worst part, unless the diagnosis is positive, of course. Dad is not going to just give up like my mother did, I know, but it's still so horrible to think about. *big hugs*

Oh, Andie. I'm so sorry. Totally something you and your dad don't need. :(

If you need anything let me know. :::Hugs:::

Thank you so much, sweetie. I'll definitely let you know. *Huge hugs*

Hoping for the very best! *hugs*

Thank you, Suz. *Hugs*

*hugs* Hoping for the best.

I'm sorry, Andie. I hope you get good news. *Hugs*

Thank you, Carol. I hope so too. *Hugs*

Oh crud. Sending good thoughts your way (and your dad's) and my sincerest wishes that this turns out to be nothing, or if it is something, something that is easy to fix.

Thank you so much, sweetie.

*hugs* Hope you'll get good news.

I hope so too. Thank you, Cris. *Hugs*

Andi -- Sorry to be so late, but I just saw your post. Am sending all the good thoughts I have your dad's way, and have fingers and toes crossed for good measure. Just take things one day at a time, and remember to breathe. *hugs*

I'm trying to be hopeful. The new blood tests came back perfectly normal, so that's something, I suppose. He has more tests on Wednesday, so that should give us more information. The waiting is really the hardest part. *Hugs back*
