My Dad is 86 and has been fighting with bladder cancer for the last two years. Now they find that he has cancer in one of his kidneys. They believe that is where his bladder cancer originated and will be removing the kidney this Wed. Prayers would be appreciated for his surgery, recovery and that the cancer has not spread. He also has some heart issues so that is a bit of a concern thru this surgery. Thanks for your prayers! I also lost two of my hens this week. SIGH! My BO, Lucy, was 4yrs old and passed last weekend. We had to put down my sweet Australorp, MeToo, today. She just turned two this spring but about 1mo. ago started in a steady decline. I've been hand feeding and watering her w/a dropper for the last week but each day she ate less and just refused to drink much. We thought we'd lose her over a week ago but she hung on getting most of her fluids eating bread soaked in milk & or AVIA Charge water. She quit eating anything I tempted her with two days ago and was only passing fluid once a day. It was a sad day today.
