UPDATE ON DAD

I spent the day with my Dad today, he is on his 5th day of radiation. He has lost 11 pounds in 5 days, so needless to say I am worried about him and it seems the Dr's are to. He is very week and I am not sure if the pain meds or the radiation to his brain is making him forgetful and kind of talking out of his head a little but he comes up with some funny things. He just got his 1976 CJ7 Jeep restored and I was outside looking at it today and he came to the door and wanted to go for a ride, after scaring him to death grinding gears and not being able to stop very good ( no power anything on this jeep!!!) he decided he wanted to drive but I would not let him on the roads we were on because he is so week in his legs and this jeep is hard to drive. But we had a good laugh that's for sure! I think my driving was about to take him out of this world not the cancer!! Please continue to pray for him to have strength and painless days ahead. Its a long fight but he is quite the trooper. This is one of my favorite pictures of me and my Dad I was about 2 in this picture.

Cyndi,
So glad you are able to spend such quality time with your dad. Do it as much as you can. Those days and weeks with my granddaddy were so precious to me. I think of you often. Praying for both of you.
