Origin Found

So the latest news on my Dad is that they have found the originating tumor - it is in the esophagus at the base of his tongue. The cancer has spread to his lymph nodes, but there are no other tumors that have shown up on the PET scan or MRI, so that is great news. It is in an early stage, but in a difficult to treat location. He has decided to have treatment up in Philly, and my Mom will be with him for the duration. He is going to undergo radation and chemo for 7 straight weeks, and hopefully get it all in one go. His spirits are good, and he is ready for the fight at this point. Thank you for all of the prayers and good wishes. I will be trying to fly up there at some point during treatment, and we plan on my family spending Christmas here in Atlanta, so we are looking forward to the holidays.
