diagnosis-not CA?

i'd planned on posting an update on my dad's health about a week ago, but just hadn't gotten around to it yet. after all the frustration of having an inguinal lymph node removed for biopsy, then returning as requested in one week to be told they didn't have the results yet & should come back in a week (which happened to be the same day that i was admitted to the hospital for the 2nd time), my parents went back to the doctor for the results. yay, not lymphoma! good news, but there were some spots on his liver, so they had him stay for a ct, whole upper body, chest/abdomen/pelvis/neck, i think. it was late & the radiologist wasn't going to read the scan that day so they sent him home. also, they set him up for a pet scan, which then had to be rescheduled to 10/18 because of insurance pre-authorization that the doctor didn't sign. okay...
and now this morning, talking to my mom on the way to work, she tells me that they received the biopsy report in the mail yesterday and it says 'lymphadenopathy shows likely lymphoma'. wtf is wrong with his doctor?!?! seriously, i am pissed off.

Arg. I am truly worried about the state of medicine in this country.
