Some great news

(Ziggy, Maya, Grandpa storytime)

All week we were dreading today....my dad's appointment with the oncologist regarding his cancer treatment/possible chemotherapy - and we have received some excellent news....

My dad is cancer-free and he does NOT have to have chemotherapy!!! We are feeling so blessed, and so grateful....we can have our life back now! He has a second chance!

For the past couple of weeks I have been spending a lot of time with my father by taking care of him. Preparing his meals, making sure he eats regularly, doing errands for him and some odds and ends around the house. It has been really nice taking care of him - I have loved every minute. 

Of course, the doctors will be monitoring him closely this year....but we are so happy to have our life back! YAY!!!

Moving forward.....my dad has decided to retire and work from home, he wants to become a vegetarian, and we are all working with him to maintain a healthier lifestyle (he even loved my blueberry kale smoothie I made him the other day - recipe coming soon!) Once he fully recovers from his surgery, he wants to go to Venice to celebrate, and we all may even make it to India this year!

Stay tuned!

  5. Alex,

    This is great news! So happy your Dad is feeling better and cancer free!!! He now will have things to do he has always wanted to do but there was no time because of work, now with retirement he can get those projects completed! He can now have more time reading and playing with Maya and Ziggy, how wonderful.

    Have a great weekend!!!!
