I just got off the phone with my FIL and he told me he has prostrate cancer and that it's "pretty bad" as the Doctor said.

He doesn't want me to tell my wife as he wants to. Karol is really close to him and I know she's going to take things hard. If ya pray give a shout out for her dad "Jerry" to the spirit of the universe or what have you. He's a good guy and he's been a great father not only to her but to me also.

My wife Karol could sure use it too.

Don, get aggressive!

When I was blessed to beat my cancer last year, there were a lot of older guys in the radiation with me who had all stages of prostate cancer.

Get him to a good oncologist and see what his options are.



Good luck man.

Thanks Guys. I am hoping for the best for him, I know he's a pretty tough ol guy so I think that will help. Funny how all my bitching becomes small and insignificant when this type of news hits.

I hope his Doc is a good one. I know with this illness it can make all the difference.

I don't think I can not tell my wife. He means the world to her and I can't keep this kind of thing from her for long. She'll take one look at me and know something is up. Ugh.

Sorry to hear about your FIL. Prayers and good thoughts sent. The Fred Hutchison (? sp) cancer research folks have a good reputation as does the UW medical facility. Check out options. The cure rate for these types of cancer is way up from what it used to be. My dad is recovering. He's 68yo.
