I found out today that my grandfather has a malignant tumor. He's having surgery tomorrow. The hope is that they will be able to remove it all and he won't have to go through radiation. I've been strugeling with this news all day though I know I play no part in the outcome. I've offered up my prayers that he would be okay, but they are nothing more than a selfish wish and because I love him and want him to be around for many more years, it's the most I can do. At times like these I regret living so far away. I want to be there tomorrow before he goes in to surgery to tell him how much I love him and how thankful I am that out of all the grandfathers in the world he is mine.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers! My grandpa made it through surgery and they removed all of the tumor so he won't need radiation. Now he just has to make it through the recovery process.
