So glad to hear about Sterling's prognosis! That is terrific!!

I'm glad to hear of your dad's good test results. And I'm sure he feels better just hearing it too. I'd have to agree with him that radiation & chemo at his age is something he doesn't want to do. When one gets to be his age every day is a blessing. Do you think he would try essiac tea or the capsule form? I would imagine it doesn't taste very good but maybe with a little honey. At one time it was a very successful cancer remedy....until it got too successful and got too much publicity and the medical establishment decided it had to be vilified. You can research it.

Isn't it nice to have your work appreciated? It might be fun to spend a couple months in Alaska in the summer at their farm. I've heard July is really nice there and June & August aren't bad.

That is really good news about Dad!! As we work through things with my 93 year old mother, we always believe, "If it isn't bad news...than it is GOOD NEWS!!" Funny about him selling things and you turning around putting it in an account for him. But anything that keeps him engaged is so good for him!!

Now you two go enjoy yourselves for a few weeks, you have earned it;o))

I have been involved with several of my family member's cancer treatment regimens. Radiation treatments are usually Monday to Friday, at a treatment center, for five, six or occasionally seven weeks and have the potential to kill or blunt the cancer. There usually is no second time on radiation due to a lifetime limit on radiation. Next after radiation is chemotherapy which sometimes can be done in a pill form that is taken at home daily by the patient; otherwise at a chemo center. Chemo may slow down the cancer for a period. And, unless there is insurance, it is expensive. Cancer is tough.

So glad to hear the tests results went well. I think it's nice your dad is selling stuff. He knows you don't have a need for any of his of it and he's taking care of it for you in advance. Plus I am sure he is deriving some pleasure from the exercise as he finds new homes for his things. Not that different from what we all went through before becoming full timers really.

Great that you and Dad had such a busy time while you were there - love that you visited places with wonderful memories :-) Even better are the test results! Cracks me up that Linda is having a ball at the little restaurant - sounds like fun to me!! Can't believe the summer gig is over already - safe travels.

Good news about your dad. My wife didn't really have a choice in the PET scan as her cancer is a lymphoma in the brain and they need to know if it is also elsewhere. She has a couple of areas that other tests were inconclusive so the PET should help. At least the bone marrow test was negative. Still waiting for the PET results but the PICC line goes in today. At least your dad won't have the IV or chemo effects.

It's been long time since I've read your blog, so was reading anxiously the last few to find out news about your father. So happy to hear that the CAT scan was clear regarding any cancer. What a true blessing.
