I wanted to post a quick update on my father’s cancer, for those who have asked after him.
I’m delighted to be able to say that the operation he had on the 2nd was a success, with the tests showing that all of the cancerous tissue was removed. This is, of course, a huge, gigantic, teary relief for all of us. I am beyond thankful, not least because the time between diagnosis and a good outcome was blessedly short, so it wasn’t months of stress for all of us.
There is still some discussion to be had with the specialist to see if he needs radiation therapy of some kind. I am really hoping that won’t be necessary.
To those who have sent me messages of support, and then ‘yay!’ messages privately and on twitter when I shared the news, thank you so much! I really have no idea if positive thoughts sent into the ether make any real difference to anything, but they *absolutely* helped me.
Relief. Champagne. Life can get back to normal now.
