My dad is in the hospital passing blood through his stool. He has done this periodically through the years because of internal hemorrhoids. Mom told me tonight that the amounts of blood he is passing with each bowel movement is way more than what she thought would be from hemorrhoids. Mom told me that dad told her a month ago that he thought he had cancer because the back pain he was having was more than from his arthritis and herniated disk damage he has suffered with over the years. He is to have a colonoscopy done and this will let us know more about what is going on. Please lift my dad(Willis Fletcher) up in prayer to God, who can heal him!! Willis Fletcher, Jr.
