My dad is at the doctor right this moment getting a follow-up colonoscopy. His last check up a month ago showed some blood in his stool test, so today they are checking to see if his colon cancer has come back. So, fingers crossed.
Update: They found and removed a couple polyps today, sent them off for biopsy, get results back in 7-10 days. I guess I know what I'll be worrying about for the next week or so. :/

Power hugs to you. My mom is going through the same thing.

No offense, but I'm REALLY starting to hate the "angels are incompetent" trope by now when I've mostly gotten used to seeing them be very damned efficient outside popular media, like in the Bible. I just don't get it how in video games and most stories they just fail every damned time at what they were supposed to do EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE THE FRIGGIN SERVANTS OF THE GODS.

When I was 12, at church camp, we got into a debate on who would win, G_d or the Devil. We had some kids argue that the Devil would win because he can cheat and G_d can't. I argued that if all of Creation was on the line, G_d would throw rules out the window and just win. I had read the gap theory.* and it stuck in my young mind.

So my celestials aren't ineffective, they're just pulling their punches. They could (for example) close the worldwound, with the side effect of rendering huge areas of the planet barren of life. If the crusaders fall and it spreads unchecked, then they would do it. Better to raze the planet and increase Pharisma's backlog than let it fall into the abyss. Basically, when they take the gloves off, continents die.

I really like this, including the spoiler. (Where do I find more info on that?)

Wildebob, maybe you could pop over to Super Genius's 52 in 52 thread and suggest the Celestials topic to them?
