I'd like to start by thanking everyone for keeping my famiy in their prayers... It means the most to me.

-------------------------------

Talked to my dad this evening... He went to the Oncologist this morning who basically agreed with his doctor -- surgery is the best treatment option for this form of cancer. His surgery date is scheduled for 5/30 since no surgeons are available until then.

So, in the meantime, my dad has to watch what he eats because most foods (hot, cold, spicy, etc.) upset his tongue.

Since this is a form of cancer most people have never heard of, we've been asking a lot of questions.

Causes for this type of cancer:
- The only known causes are: smoking, drinking, and dentures / bridgework.

Little known fact:
- Head, throat and neck cancers very seldom spread (if they do, it does not spread further than the neck area).

I will keep everyone posted when I hear more.

Bye for now.
