It is cancer. The words no one wants to hear. So, Pop's tumor is malignant and now we wait to see what the treatment and options will be. For those of you who have emailed, called and talked to us in person - thank you. Your prayers and encouraging words are wonderful gifts.
Now, Pop has been moved to a rehabilitation center where he will have the opportunity to work on the mobility of his hip. After that we'll see what the Doctors want to do to treat the cancer.
Over the past couple of days I have been thinking about how I can think through this and be an encouragement to my family. An article comes to mind that was written some years ago. It is by John Piper and was written while he dealt with his own cancer. If you've never read it I would encourage you to read this and use it as a tool in dealing with your own cancer or that of someone you love.
