My Dad

Hi
Dad lives near Edinburgh and assume he will be treated there, I havent asked a lot of questions as my stepmother cries everytime I ring and Dad changes the subject asap when I ask anything, sure they will tell me more once they know where he stands.

Thanks for your support I appreciate it

My Dad

Spoke to Dad last night, his appointment has been brought forward to next week, he has the investigations on Monday and the prognosis on Tuesday. I am pleased it has been brought forward, I guess at least he'll know what he's up against.
