Thank You

I just got off the phone with my Dad. He braced me by saying "Mike, I have news that will have you walking on water". He then told me that his petscan ( a test that shows cancer growth) has come up clear and his tumors have shunk by 50%!. He is truly humbled by the support and prayers. I share in that feeling.

Thank You!

One more for the road

My Dad has boarded the plane and has headed for home. I grabbed one more pic to capture the moment. We had a memorable 2 weeks. Love Ya Dad.

The Old Man Still Has The Magic

A Special Fathers Day

Because of the distance between us, its been many years since I have spent a Fathers Day with my Dad. That in itself would make this day special. This year, just having him here makes this day even more special.

3 months ago, my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. They gave him 3-6 months to live. He began Chemo treatments and we all held our breath and prayed. The treatments are doing its job and he was able to make it out here. He really is a miracle. He looks great and is still the upbeat and fun guy that I have always loved.

I once again feel blessed to be able to share this day. If you look into the eyes and smiles of the others ( my brother Dave and his sons and my son) you can tell they feel the same way.

Please continue your prayers for him. I appreciate each and every one.

I do a request!

As promised. Here is a song for one of my longest lasting blog buddies. Heck she has been a friend even before the good old internet! She even took the time to watch a younger and much more agile and now blog writer, frolic in the outfield during his baseball playing days!

Anyway, Maggie loved the late ( and she would say great) Dan Fogelberg. Personally,I thought he could be a dour fella and his songs a bit on the slow side. But, I have found a gem that shows his fantasy island suit wearing, playfull side busting out for the world to see!

Get ready to be rocked by Danny F!!!!!

And Enjoy it Maggie!
