Dad mowed his lawn yesterday. A couple months ago, that wouldn't be blog-worthy news - but considering what he's been through, it's the best news I've heard all day! He's up, he's out, he's doing great! I can't say he's back to full strength, but he's doing very, very well.
After having tubes and wires and IVs for so long, he'll be glad to say goodbye to the last thing left... his feeding tube, which comes out Tuesday. He's down 35 lbs and still doesn't have much of an appetite. Some of his teeth are numb and he says his taste buds just aren't the same. He'll most likely be headed to work on May 1. He's hoping to have enough energy for at least a 1/2 day.
Thanks again for all of the blog comments cards, phone calls, gifts and e-mails you've sent to me and my family. And most of all, for your prayers. Thank you, thank you.
