Happy Holiday News!

It is always fun to get a personal e-mail at work. A little news from the "outside" is such a ray of sunshine during a busy day at the office. I got a HUGE burst of sunshine when I got the below e-mail from my Dad on Friday. With his permission, please read what he sent me! This e-mail was sent to my aunt, cousins, sister and me.

Greetings To All:

This is my holiday update. I visited the oncologist Wednesday and he was very favorable as to the therapy success. He said “I have added years to my life.” He sees no rush to do the PET/CT Scan right away and would like to let it keep working in me until the first of August which is fine with me. There will not be any further treatments. So the next step is to have the port catheter removed and excise a couple lingering nodules. My regular surgeon will perform that task in day surgery next Wednesday July 5, 2006.

Enjoy the holiday. I will work tomorrow half day and then hit miserable golf shots at my personal driving range down at the barn.

Love to all,

Father, Brother, & Uncle D.


I am so thankful for and happy about this great news! Praise God who is answering our prayers! Thank you for praying for my Dad. I'll continue to give you updates.

Happy, happy Independence Day!
