What a day, and THANK YOU!

Today has been interesting. I just got a package in the mail, from RosesTex, and the blogging family with a beautiful soy candle and piece of candy with Chaps store name and a lovely card. Thank you to all. I don't even have Chap's email, so if anyone can help me with that it would be much appreciated.

On facebook today, I got two friend invites from people I had lost contact with over 20 years ago! What a shock. One friend had even named her first daughter after me and that daughter just got married yesterday. I didn't even know about her. WOW.

My dad had cyberknife treatment for his lung cancer. The last treatment was last week. He will get a CAT scan and a PET scan in two months and hopefully that is the last of that cancer. He is feeling tired, and very cold inside, but that is normal with this kind of radiation. The good thing is there is no cutting. It is all done with a fancy laser. I'm so grateful that he was a candidate for this treatment as one oncologist told my mom that my dad would not have survived traditional surgery where they remove a lobe of the lung. He actually told my mother that there was not a doctor he knew who would have performed that surgery on an 81 year old man who had already had cancer and part of a lung removed. So, MANY, MANY, MANY, thanks for your prayers.
