A HUGE thanks to all of you for your kind words. They have been such a comfort.
My dad finally called me this weekend and told me. It was told in a very off hand way in the middle of the conversation. From what I could get out of him...the doctors don't want to do any treatments due to his age, but also told him he could live to be a hundred. He told me he has lived a good long life and isn't worried about it. Hopefully he will have many good years to come.
One good thing about this week...my best friend came to spend several days with me. We don't get to see each other often since I live in Florida and she lives in Chicago, but it is always wonderful when we do. It was great to spend time with her and laugh and relax after months of stress.
Still haven't stitched anything!
