Happy update on Dad


Dad’s doctor said he was fine, and I am as happy as can be! To those who wished my Dad the best in my prior Friends Only post, thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Since we are all adults, I will explain what had happened. Dad was diagnosed with prostrate cancer about 4 or 5 years ago (I lose track of time) and had to gave a prostrate operation. Ever since, he’s had to have a PSA test every 6 months.

He suddenly developed a horrible pain in one of his testicles, so painful that he couldn’t walk, or even make it to the bathroom, or get in bed.

The doctor said he had somehow sprung himself, and this is why he was experiencing so much pain. I’m now wondering if his dog, which is a very big dog, somehow jumped on him.

Dad will be going back to work just as soon as his pain goes away


I will take this opportunity again, to warn all of you to have all your male family members have their prostrate checked yearly by a doctor. If caught in time, they won’t have to go through the horrific operation my Dad had. Have them keep away from Teflon frying pans; eat lots of fresh vegetables and salad, especially tomato and broccoli salad, and keep away as much as possible from beef.

I’m so, so happy now!

I'm glad he's doing alright. I must have missed that post.

I know how it feels to go through such a thing. I'm going through that right now. My dad is fighting leukemia right now. He just had his first session of kemo last week or so. It's sad that I can't even go see him right now.

I didn't know, and I'm so sorry! Only those who have gone through the heart stopping horror of having a loved one with Cancer can fully understand. Should he ever have to go to the hospital, try your best to go and stay with him night and day until he's released. Hospitals do not provide too much care for patients.

Tig, I will be praying for your Dad!

Yes, looks like my guy is going to make it!

I'm so sorry about Buddy, and fully understand what you and yours are going through. Buddy is family. With the help of the meds and continous care, I'm sure he'll live a long life.

Hang in there, and hugs!

I'm so thrilled for you and your family. So should I ask for your father's blessing while I can still out run him? Or have you already told him and he's looking for me?

You better ask Dad for my hand, 'cuz I already told him I'm having a little inspectorjury, jr. So, you better giddy up fast 'for I start showing, and my brothers come after you with their shot guns!!

HOLD ON THERE JUST A MINUTE QUICKS DRAW!!! I don't remember doing what it takes to make a little inspectorjury with you. If that had happened I would remember. But, if you Daddy says it's okay then we can try to make a little inspectorjury. It will be fun for both of us as I am an excellent lover. Why I most likely can give you the most exciting six seconds of your life. As for me dismounting and throwing my arms in the air that's just a side effect of the bump on my head I received bulldogging a three legged steer.

Looky here you rascal! Don't cha go tellin' me you don't remember when it happened! Is it possible you forgot, just like you forgot my birthday?!

Aha! You're backing out of marrying me, huh?! You ain't gonna get away with it, 'cuz I'm gonna tell my brothers that your now trying to weasel out a marrying me by tricking me into thinking I'm the Immaculate Conception!

Gotta go and change baby inspectorjury jr's diaper, and when I get back, you better have the preacher with you, or eles!!

inspectorjury, jr. needs more diapers. And while you're at the store, buy a couple of bibs; one blue, and the other one fire engine red!

I'm so glad he's okay!

My dad had a prostrate operation last month...

I am so sorry he had to go through it. I don't know if his operation was as horrific as my Dad's, where he was sliced from his navel all the way down. I pray it wasn't like my Dad's, and I will pray for him and all his loved ones!

Just remember that my Dad's operation was 4 or 5 years ago, and he's beat the "aggressive type" Cancer so far. You're Dad is going to be just fine, also!

Hugs and kisses Ayoub!

Glad your father is doing well - it must have been awful, but I'm glad he's recovering well. And I'm glad you can put your mind at ease a bit :)

Thank you so much lemmy! Every six months that he takes the PSA test, my family and I go through great stress.
