I'm going to see my parents again.

My dad called and asked me if I could come and help out for a few weeks. He's really tired from the radiation treatments, so I'm leaving Saturday for their home in New Mexico and staying three weeks. I will still be around because in the evenings, they go to bed early and I'll have my laptop. LOL He has a doctors appointment while I'm there, so we'll see if the radiation did any good or not. Keep your fingers crossed. Other then being tired, I don't think he has any complaints. Not bad for an 87 almost 88 year old with lung cancer. I've been very lucky to have them as long as I have and I know I'm blessed. We're going to celebrate his birthday a month early while I'm there. That'll be nice.

Hugs, Patt

he is doing amazingly well. The treatment really takes it out of anyone far less someone of his years. I think its a lovely idea to celebrate his birthday while you are there with them. Have a lovely visit

Thank you, Nicci. I really enjoy being with him. He's a hoot. My mom, poor dear, is going downhill faster then ever, so I want to spend as much time with her too. Dementia is an awful thing. But we all make the best of it, including her. She's a trooper, too.

Hugs, Patt

I imagine the treatment is quite draining your dad is quite the fighter. Good for him. Have a lovely visit!

I hope your visit goes well and that you make some more wonderful memories of good times with both of them. Goes without saying that I hope the treatments have been effective.

Fingers crossed that the radiation did the trick.

Thank you, Grey. We don't expect it to have taken it away, but making it smaller would give him a few more years with us. He always says he's ready to go, but we're not ready. It's the ones that are left behind that have a hard time dealing. I'm praying for good news.

Day late!

Patt hope things go well. You'll have fun planning the birthday. And I know my parents really enjoyed watching the preparations whenever I was cooking and creating things for birthdays, etc.
