    A Head's Up

    About 6 months ago, my father in law was diagnosed with melanoma that had infested his ocular nerve. They removed his eye in order to prevent the spread. Last night, he sent us an email detailing his most recent diagnosis. The cancer has spread to his liver and lymph nodes. The largest of which is about the size of your hand atop his liver. The doctors need to run tests to give us any details on timeframe or severity. Traditional treatment has already been ruled out, but there are some gene therapy treatments that are new and have promising results. He plans to arrange a few meeting this and next week to begin the process. If they can map the genome specific to the tumor, there is a chance the therapy can put him in remission. There was one recent success of this with someone with his similar condition. Again, its success relies on the tests and mapping of the cancer's genetic make up.

    My wife took took the news bad and was up most the the night trying to process it. She lost her mother to liver failure and a colon rupture no more than 4 years ago. She was 23 at the time. To me, he's been more of a father than my own who's been absent in my life since I was 13. Craig is a good man who doesn't deserve something like this.

    I'm going to make an attempt to handle as business as usual. For all of you, I ask a bit of patience a little understanding if my mood is not ideal. I'll try to keep you up to date and I apologize for any inconvenience. I just wish to remain as transparent as possible should situations worsen. We've been told to remains optimistic. So, that's what we'll try to do.

    Good grief, that's rough. Here's hoping that the gene therapy works.

    Tell Jacque we're all rooting for him.

    Many many hugs to you and yours. I would say take every bit of time you need. The Gisela can wait, so can many other things, what is important is you and your family. Cancer can be horrible, I think we can all completely empathise. Xx let us know if we can do anything.

    Goes without saying that I'm a skype call away if you ever need me for anything, whether its a vent, a chat, whatever. My family has been rife with that bastard of a disease since about the 1950's and we've had to deal with it on a close personal level recently too so if you feel the need to talk anything through, i'm here mate.

    Sending you huge love and the sincerest wishes your dad (he is) gets the best of it.

    My best wishes and hopes go out to you and yours, Lye. That is beyond heavy to handle, and I know myself and many others here are around if shoulders are needed, or any other support is required. No worries about us here, please. Do what you have to do, and we are here for support however needed.

    That's some scary harsh luck. I hope the gene therapy goes well for him. Don't worry about Althy, we can always wait, but I'm here to offer patpats if you feel you need 'em.
