    My dad called today with what he said was bad news and good news.

    The bad news being that he has prostate cancer. The good news being he is having Cryotherapy on Wednesday and it has a 95% success rate when the cancer is caught early like his. It's an outpatient thing where they freeze and basically kill off the prostrate.

    If you wouldn't mind saying some prayers or having good thoughts that he is in the 95% it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Praying 100% that he'll be in that 95% - for sure.

    And sending an extra little prayer for you and your family to be brave.

    You have my prayers! And some encouragement too--my father, who is 85 and still dances and picks up women :D--had that too and is fine now.

    Saying a prayer. Good for your dad for doing something about it. Believe it or not many men choose to ignore the issue until it's too late to do anything. My Mom's late husband for one.

    Hope it is wonderfully successful.

    Thank you everyone, the good thoughts and prayers are much appreciated. Dad is 71 years young and is a wonderful person. I really am thinking he'll be o.k.95% success rate is pretty good. When I know more I'll post-again thanks to all!

    Lots of prayers from me, too.

    father in law is a survivor, just got his 5-year-clean certification!!! This is actually a good thing, caught early it's easy to eradicate.

    If he needs anything - support, someone unrelated to talk to, the American Cancer Society has a really good staff. I'll PM you the #.

    Good thoughts galore going out. Glad he's doing that and not radiation....I've seen and heard too many bad things about that course of treatment. (Each person reacts different to treatment, I know, but still glad to hear it's not that.)
