My brother-in-law is having brain surgery next Wed, the day before Thanksgiving.

We just found out recently he has cancer in his upper nose area. That area connects to his sense of smell and to his brain. It''s very hard for me to talk or type about it, so I''m skipping the details until it has all passed.

I just wanted to share because I want that day to be filled with strength for him and our family. He''s really shaken up by this since he is only 21 yrs old.

The surgery starts at 8am on Wed and will last the whole day. Hopefully they''ll be able to remove the entire tumor. I''ll keep you guys updated after the surgery.

Thank you for the well wishes. As the day nears, the more worried I get. I can only imagine what David is going through. I think he is falling into depression. When I saw him yesterday, he looked terrible, plus it looked like he hasn''t shaved in days.

I''m trying very hard to reach out to him and get him to think positively about the surgery. I don''t want him to go into surgery thinking he won''t make it, since the mind effects the body tremendously.

My brother is friends with him so he is trying to talk to David as well.

The weird thing is the whole family is hiding all their emotions. I''m not used to it, but it''s normal because in the Chinese culture, we don''t like to or don''t know how to express our emotions to our family. The parents haven''t talked to him, neither has his siblings.

And when I told his second brother about David''s surgery on Wednesday, there was a moment of silence and then the subject was changed. He''s planning to go to L.A. that day for Thanksgiving weekend. I wanted to blow up! How can he think about going to LA when his brother is having brain surgery??!!

I don''t know, maybe that''s the way they deal with it. I just think David''s needs all our support that day. He needs to see all of us there for him when he goes into the OR.

I''ve been trying to call Sam the whole day to convince him to talk to David and also give me permission to talk to his second brother and convince him not to go to LA. It''s eating me up right now. I don''t want to barge in and tell people what to do, but they should be there for him. That''s their blood and they need to be there for him now more than ever.
