Well dad had his check up prior to surgery tomorrow. Seems that according to his catscan done late last week his kidney etc are all looking good. he was told he has 3 lesions on his bladder which are to be scraped off tomorrow and collected. They will perform a biopsy on them as well. In a weeks time or so we will know what, if anything, has to be done after that. So things have a green light for his surgery tomorrow. I won't be on much tomorrow. Maybe after 6 at night possibly. His surgery is at 1 p.m. So we won't get home till 6 or so is my guess as they want the patients to stay a few hours after surgery for the anestesia to wear off etc. Thanks all just wanted to fill you all in as usual. have a great day/evening as well. he loosk healthy in this shot doesn't he? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Great news on the catscan. Is he still bleeding? Hopefully the lesions will all turn out to be nothing serious. Take your cross stitch with you to keep you busy and don't forget to take pictures of your Lil Princess to show her off.

Not as much blood but still some in his urine. We are hoping they are benign tumors etc as well. Doubt if I take any photos with me tomorrow but thanks. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

I hope they are able to fix this problem and you really need to take some time for yourself to rest, relax and de-stress before YOU have health problems. Care giver to a parent is stressful at the best of times and when they are having health issues it ratchets the stress up even more. Do try to take some time for yourself- it will help you both to be able to cope.

It doesn't sound bad at all so far. Best wishes and blessings going your way. Don't be surprized to find that dear ol' Great Grandpa may just have his nose out of joint a tad bit because of our precious little Savanna. There is something to be said about second childhood, but I do pray for good results you know that. I think your dad will be fine and you're right he looks good!!!

Its good to hear that all the test came out good. I'll be praying for your dad, that the biopsy will be negative and that they don't find anything. He looks healthy, and I'm sure he's a strong willed person, he'll be fine...

Not that they came out good, just that they came out without any MAJOR problems. he has some issues that are not serious right now according to the tests. So in the future he has more to tend to healthwise. Well I do actually, not him. Thanks also. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
