My dad has just found out that the prostate cancer he was diagnosed with and treated for 10 years ago has returned, in his ribs and in his spine. He also has a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder, which is more painful than the cancer spots. The connection to this board is that my mom and I, and my eldest sister all have FMS. I am very worried how this intense stress will affect my mom. She also deals with arthritis and other problems, although really, she is in pretty good health. I want her to stay that way. It's very hard to see my dad in pain, and so muddle headed from the pain meds. Honestly, I'm not ready to lose my dad, or to see him suffer. (Although I'd rather lose him than have him suffer, if that makes sense.) Anyway, if any of you could include them in your prayers, their names are Shirley and Harold, and they live in Mission Viejo, California. Thank you in advance, for anyone who can help. Peace, Beth.
