Is there anything more cruel than dashed hopes? If so, I don't want to experience it.
As you now know Danny had the surgery about three weeks ago with a new PSA blood test two weeks later. Yesterday they received the unhappy news that although the doctor was optimistic he'd gotten all the cancer, apparently he didn't. The test was elevated showing more cancer cells to deal with. A serious course of radiation therapy is now on the agenda.
This unhappy news comes just days before Amanda, their eldest daughter, graduates with high honors from University of Florida. Apparently Danny took the news better than Lisa--she is devastated. You know a little about Lisa, but not so much about Danny. What I can tell you is that he is a quiet man of many talents. He was a fireman with the City of Orlando until retirement and is now a fire inspector. Throughout their married life Danny has always taken excellent care of Lisa and his girls. A wonderful father, good cook, hard worker, and exemplary husband. Why he has to have cancer I don't know, but if you are the praying type please keep him in yours.
