Re: A Call to Arms..
Thanks for the update. Glad to hear he might be on the road to recovery. I guess all we can do is keep the hope alive, have him in our prayers, and wait 4-6 weeks.We're bringing purple back.

Well, here we are a year later and the battle continues.. Here's dad's CaringBridge for some more updates: CaringBridge / Joel Formo / Welcome
Sorry I've been slacking on this, just been busy with RL and making sure dad knows he's cared for and loved.Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(

I can't believe that I managed to miss this the first time around!
Best wishes for your father's continued recovery. If he's a Vikings fan like you and the rest of us, we know he has to be tough. It takes tremendous stamina to back our team.
My Meeple is purple. What color is yours?

I know not many post much or come here often, but the short and nasty of the updates are:
Dad's liver is failing due to the tumors that have spread and grown. Because of that, the fluids that would normally pass through it are just 'overflowing' and bloating his abdomen. They drained it once but it took only a matter of an hour or two and he was bloated again in discomfort.
Surgery isn't an option, so the only thing we can do now is have him on diuretics to hopefully ease the pressure and his discomfort.
So right now, while we are all praying and speaking for a miracle, dad's on the homestretch. The CaringBridge I posted somewhere in this thread will have more updates, but I just wanted to post this anyway.. I find talking about what's going on and how I'm handling it as somewhat of a help.Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(
