Hurray for Dad!!

Today at 3pm my Dad had his very last radiation treatment!! After every week day of this for 8 1/2 weeks, 42 treatments, he is DONE. We are all relieved.

He apparently handled the treatments well except he's been very tired. Amazingly he's been able to keep up his daily walks. We expect his energy to return now. Oh Happy Day!!!

Hee Haw. Grandpa is such a stud. You all know I love this guy. I am so glad he is done with all of this.

WOW! He's truly an amazing man. He is one of those guys who is going to live to be 200! That's the big talk on Oprah these days. Life longevity through what sounds like your dad has done-good health habits. AWESOME. Here's wishing you a complete & happy restoration of your health!

Yay for grampa! I'm sure the radiation was a walk in the park compared to some of those 100+ mile races he's done.
