Hey Ho, Daddio

My Dad is doing great, thanks so much for all the well wishes. He had a malignant lesion removed from his kidney - no further treatment is necessary because this type of cancer does not respond to chemo or radiation. That being said, they believe the cancer is all gone. So woo hoo for that! He came home from the hospital today and is navigating around quite well. The big challenge is to prevent a cat from jumping on his incision. And of course keeping Dad off the golf course until he is fully released which will likely not be for 8 weeks, pity my poor Mama as she has to tolerate him during this time.

I, on the other hand, am not doing so great. Good grief, I am supposed to be here to help, not hinder, but wouldn't you know it, I got food poisoning (or maybe a short stomach virus?) and was out for the count the last couple of days. Luckily I woke up today mostly back to normal but pretty weak.

It would be way tmi for me to share all the gory details of my illness, but suffice to say I haven't been this sick in probably 20 years. The only upside is I have (temporarily) lost a little weight.


  1. Praise God for your father's successful surgery. And, "like" that famous line in The Devil Wears Prada~"just one stomach virus away from your goal weight"?
    May you and your family have a blessed week~

  2. Such good news for your Dad. I'll bet that even though you were sick, your parents were happy to have you with them at such a tough time. Glad you are well. I love looking at your stuff.

  3. Hey, Got your comment and I will be happy to add your link to my blog and will send my address soon. Glad to hear your Dad's doing well. I enjoyed looking at your work.
