We found out right before hurricane Florence decided to make landfall on right on top of them, that my father-in-law had pancreatic and colon cancer.  He's having some testing so he doesn't know how bad yet.  He beat colon cancer years ago but you know that it's possible to have it back.  I'm only 12 days quit (again) but I will not pick up a cigarette to 'get' me through it. Ex helped me make it 7 months free and I know that every one of you will help me make it for the rest of my life.   Nothing changes by smoking, which I already knew, but I completely blew that off.  Lesson learned. As for this quit I am not going put a $5 bill in my mouth and light my face fire!  Thank you to all Ex-ers and your loving hands that are always at the ready to hold a hand or lift me up for a little 'crowd surfing'.


UPDATE SO FAR:  OK my FIL (father in-law) went to have a CAT or maybe MRI, hubby didn't remember which, last Friday.  It is cancer but is limited to the pancreas not the colon.  As for the severity or type we don't know yet but hubby will be calling his dad today for an update.  He was supposed to have all the results in yesterday so we didn't want to jump on the phone before he and his wife process the news themselves.  I'm praying hard for them.  I will hopefully post an update later today or tomorrow.
