    • Thanks for your thoughts on this. I called my dad today. He seemed in good spirits but he got off the phone as soon as he could without being rude. He didn't talk about the MRI at all. I just kept it light and tried to make him laugh by admitting my kids, who I love dearly and my life revolves around, are grating on my nerves! It cracked him up because I've NEVER said that before! I told him I'm finally admitting I'm ready for school to start. He said he gives me credit for never having said that before now, my son starts high school and my daughter will be in fifth grade. He says he's impressed I held out so long!  All that said, my dad has never seen me as his little girl, we've spent at least half my life not even speaking. His wife has been the wedge between us since I was literally a baby and I've not lived with him since he moved in with her when I was two. I think it's more about him not wanting pity or to acknowledge the severity of his situation. I also so vividly remember his wife urging him to quit smoking a few years back saying no one will feel sorry for him when he gets lung cancer. So I'm guessing he's dealing with shame as well, though is most definitely isn't coming from me. My view is that everyone should live their lives and no habit is better than another. I have no criticism of him whatsoever, only love. And forgiveness.  Anyway. I texted my adult half brother. He told me the cancer has spread to his brain.
