Well my step father has been ill since November and went into the hospital the day before we left Romania to see what was going on. Well it turns out he has colen cancer, prostate cancer, lymph node cancer, bone cancer and lung cancer. 5 of those are caused by agent orange that he was exposed to during vietnam. It just seems never ending, althoughI am really glad that we are home now and I can be with my family. We got the prognoses today that he has about 6 months left. Just continue to keep us in your prayers.
