So, today fucking sucked

Fuck today.

Five years ago, my dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 throat cancer after never smoking a single cigarette in his life. The cancer was treatable and he came out on top of it after a few months of chemo and radiation.

Ever since then he's regularly been checked for cancer and everything's been clean for years. They labeled him cured.

Well, after having a sore neck for about a month or so, my dad went to have a biopsy done today and the initial diagnosis is cancer. Fuck. Why? What the fuck? Where did this come from? I guess we find out more Friday, but today's been really tough.

Oh, today's my mom and dad's 37th wedding anniversary, so fuck you universe, God, whatever.

Please keep my dad in your thoughts and prayers. Let's hope the news Friday gives us a clearer game plan as we go forward beating the shit out of cancer again.

Thank you! And, yeah, for sure we should talk more. I haven't been on as much lately, but have been bouncing back on again more recently.

Thanks, Alissa. We meet with the Ear, Nose and Throat specialist Monday morning. Until then, it's just nervously waiting.

I can't even imagine... and on Father's Day weekend, too. Just fucking terrible. :(

I guess the only (minor) silver lining in this is that you're in Cleveland, so you're surrounded by some good options for health care, right?

Yeah, but my parents still live in the Toledo area, so I imagine he'll go through it again where he did it the first time around.

Yeah, that's the worst part about all of this is not knowing. I feel like my family is preparing for the worst, but I'm holding out some hope that whatever he has they can cure it like last time. This time around feels different though. We'll see.
