Worried Wednesday

Nemo napping, what else would he be doing?


Today is another worried Wednesday at our house. Remember way back in November when we told you our Dad had surgery and all that. Since then he has to go see the throat doctor every 6 weeks for a checkup. He had one yesterday and they are wanting to go back in for another biopsy. The abnormal tissue is on his larynx so they can't just go digging and take stuff out. Last time it came out as moderate dysplasia so it is something we need to keep watch on. We are hoping that that is all it is again and that has not advanced. They have scheduled his surgery for March 13th. We are a little worried because that is Friday the 13th. Our Grandma is coming to stay and take Dad to Iowa City since Mom is pregnant and will be about 36 weeks along at that point we don't want her to take any chances having to drive an hour away. Mom's eyes have been leaking a lot because she's very scared for Dad and upset that this is happening. This time of stuff usually happens to people over the age of 55 and that are heavy smokers. Dad is only 25 and does not smoke. Hopefully that will make it easier for him to fight it. We would just like you guys to keep us in your thoughts. The next couple months will be hard with his surgery, finding out the results and having a baby. We will keep everyone posted as to how things are going. The biopsy surgery is pretty minor so we will have our Dad home that day. The waiting for the results is hard, last time it was a month before we heard anything. Until then we are going to stay positive and have fun with our Dad. We are getting a little restless to go outside so we hope Spring comes soon. Nemo is also going to share his story soon of throat surgery.Patches sitting in Dad's chair taking a bath.
