This last Tuesday I found out my dad has kidney cancer, and this morning they've determined it's stage 4. They're going to remove the cancerous kidney next week but his other kidney won't sustain him so next week when they do this, my Dad will likely die of renal failure rather than the cancer.
Air travel Boston to Detroit is impossibly expensive so the wife & I will head out in the early AM for the 11 hour drive instead.
If anyone wonders why I may not be around as often, well, this is why.
BTW - BK, I owe you a TON of thanks.
This news saddens me. hang in there, buddy.
