No Card - Just a Couple Updates

I don't have a card to share with you today, so I'll give you a couple updates. 

The first one is about my dad. He finished his thirty radiation treatments on his cheek and neck on Tuesday. He passed with flying colors! He really is amazing - truly. He did so much better than was expected. It's hard on ANYONE and he will be ninety in April! He hardly lost any weight, didn't get dehydrated, didn't end up in the hospital, kept a VERY positive attitude, drank his water, drank his Boost, forced himself to eat, etc. He will continue to get worse for a week or two, and then start the recovery and hopefully not have any more cancer. He is normally a VERY fast healer, so we're all hoping he will be healed up very soon. My wonderful brother and sister-in-law have spent the last two and a half weeks with him here in Minnesota and this morning they are leaving to go back home to Georgia and are taking my dad with them. That is just SO awesome. We're not sure when he will come back. He may love it down there and stay for a long time! He will be back by April for his birthday, though, and hopefully we can do our skydiving then!

On a different note - Wyatt is back at Children's Hospital:( He came down with pneumonia again and went to the hospital on Tuesday. He's doing OK and is getting great care. His breathing has to improve again before he goes home.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Prayers for your dad and Wyatt. Just think, your love of stamping and sharing your blog, has produced several prayer warriors you didn't even know existed! We will keep them in our thoughts and prayers! Happy Thursday to you, Lynette!

I'm so happy to hear about your Dad! He's a real fighter and very good to take such care with himself during his treatment. It helps to have the kind of family support you've all given him during this time. Not so happy to hear about Wyatt, though. I'm sorry for the little guy. My son had pneumonia at 8 months, but wasn't sick enough to be hospitalized. These days can't be too careful. I hope he feels all better soon!

I don't post often, but I love your creativity. I, too, am a prayer warrior and will keep your Dad and Wyatt in my prayers as we go forward. Be sure to take good care of yourself, too! Thanks so much for sharing your creations with all of us!
