Thanks everyone.
Got to talk with a nurse today to see what they found out on the MRI.
They found three "nodules" on his brain, and a "mass" on his cheek, so it's sounding worst every day now. Tomorrow or Wed. they are going to start chemo I guess, just don't know...
I know for damn sure, this ole boys going to be making himself an appointment for the dreaded colonoscopy pretty soon. Father's brother had the same thing happen to him five year ago, so it's in the bloodline.
I'm afeared things are going to get ugly around here before long.

Truly appreciate everything guys. It means a great deal to us.
Change of plan after finding it on his brain, instead of 46 hours of chemo every two weeks, it's now 2-3 hours for three straight days, then again every two weeks. Re-scan in two months to see if there is any improvement, and go from there.
A good friend of fathers stopped in to see me today, and after the hugs and crying stopped, he said this to me. "Seems like every week you hear, did you hear about the guy down the road, or the lady up the road, seems like it's your turn to be the guy down the road this time".
And I guess there is some truth to that, it's always someone that's going through it, but this time it's us.
My biggest problem is being home alone 10 hours out of a day, and living in the home place where I growed up, everywhere I look I remember father doing this that or the other thing. The mind wonders, and emotions run...
He's a tough old bird, so I'm just hoping the chemo will rid him of some of the pain, and he can come home again, even if it's not as long as we'd like.

Sorry Todd, I just saw this thread. It sounds like they are trying an aggressive approach toward his chemo. Your dad is a strong willed man.....and so is his son (you). The idle time that you have can be havoc on your psyche, reflect on those memories and not only smile because they happened, but stay positive for many more!! Harpo (Adolph) Marx, said in his book (Harpo Speaks), "It's sad when someone passes and even sadder when a great man passes. Its doubly sad when the greatness passes before the man." Sounds like your dad is going to need someone to keep the spirits up and never lose hope for what might be. It's not just the person in our life, but the life in the person that takes our breathe away and forever imprints in our memory.

When my dad was in the hospital with multiple myeloma, another man told me that he had the same thing and the doctors gave him 6 months to live and then he told me that was 11 years ago! Only One Being knows and abides by that timeline.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Cub Cadet 123

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
