Cancer's a Bitch.

(Yes, two in one day. Addie also got two and Garrett got one. I'm on fire! I love getting caught up!)

My little buddy Atticus is not doing well. I mentioned him on here a couple months ago and things got better for a very short while (by 'better' I mean, Atticus' mom and dad are AMAZING people and I don't know how I could even breathe if I knew one of my babies was going to die). They inspire me everyday. And Cindy and I are friends in 'real life' now. Like, emails, letters in the mail, and it's even 'facebook official', I hope to meet her someday. His cancer has spread, his symptoms have returned with a vengeance, and his days are very numbered. Please pray that he'll have a few weeks of feeling good, and happy memories for his parents and baby brother.(A card from the Hansen's)


The day before we went to Utah (May 15th), my mom called to tell us that my Dad found out that day that he has Melanoma (skin cancer). He's had one procedure already to have some removed and he's having surgery in 2 weeks to have more taken out. We'll know shorty after that if it's deep enough to have reached the lymph nodes. Because of where it is, that's a fear the doctor has. We're praying it hasn't effected the lymph nodes because it could get really ugly if it has.

My dad has as amazing attitude about it all. And our time in Utah with him was so good. Even Garrett, who sticks to my mom like glue, and pretends that even I am invisible if she's around, had some really sweet playtime and cuddle time with his Grandpa. It was really awesome.Please pray for my daddy.

I love your dad. He will be in my prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about your dad, Andrea. I will pray that the surgery removes it all and it hasn't hit the lymph nodes.

And I agree with the title of your post.
