Cancer

My dad's tumor isn't necessarily cancerous. I realized this yesterday, when I'd calmed down enough to think about it logically. His friend who phoned me Friday night told me it was cancer, but as far as I know they can't be certain one way or the other without a biopsy (which they haven't done, as far as I know). It's still bad, because the tumor is already causing bad headaches and difficulty walking, and because it could grow, but it isn't necessarily cancer.

In much smaller good news, but still welcome good news, our local grocery store has Gatorade on sale for $1 a bottle. Yowza! I deserve some Gatorade.

I apologize for all the spam, but this Dad stuff is on my mind constantly.
