I thought you should know this in case [dad] can't get hold of you at this time.
[dad] called [brother] last night & told him that he is undergoing treatment for a brain tumor, and that they expect that he has 3-5 years to live with the treatment program they are putting him into. He is still undergoing tests, but doesn't expect the prognosis to change significantly.
and this is to remind me that things could always be worse
