General Stuff

My dad is doing quite well! Yippee!!

I seriously cannot thank all of you for your prayers, good wishes, thoughts, emails....everything. You guys are all absolutely the best.

After a few rough days, he finally started feeling really good on Wednesday.

Thursday - yeah, out on the riding lawnmower.

Hello?? Dad??? You had prostate cancer surgery 6 days earlier and you are out on the riding lawnmower??

Sheesh....

But you are all wonderful people. The strength I drew from your comments was felt deep inside me. And I wish I had something more to say than "thank you".

But I don't. So thank you for being YOU.

Big hugs to you all. And for whatever you are going through, or will go through, if you need anything - just holler. You are all in MY prayers each night.

Imagine my shock when my colleague Brendan commented on my blog the other day about his
battle of the jerkface that is cancer.

Brendan's strength is true inspiration.

If you are in Houston, and care to join The Relay for Life ... let's do it. Everyone has been touched by cancer. Everyone.... Let's beat it, shall we?

Margaret, I am so sorry that I haven't been able to comment, but know that I was thinking of your Dad, and am so happy that he is doing well!

We cancer survivors are an odd bunch...your dad mows the lawn after surgery...I cleaned out my fire place 3 days after my mastectomy.

There is light at the end of the tunnel. I will continue to pray for your daddy.
