An Early Christmas Gift

An Early Christmas Gift

Posted by Cynthia Mac on Dec 20, 2019 10:44 am

Dad called last night to say that his GP received the results of his CT scan (just held this past Monday!), and his tumours in his liver are down in size again! It seems “chemo light” and immunotherapy are still working.

May each of you find something in your Christmas season to bring such a light into your holiday, no matter the source of that light!

Cynthia Mac
I am so happy to hear this! 
With all your updates and stories, I feel like your dad has become my dad in a way, and I anxiously await his test results almost as much you do! 

BTW.   is he still smoking  or has he given that up now? 

The sun is shining here now, both in the sky and in my heart ♥

Cynthia Mac‍  Thank you for sharing your journey with your Dad.  I echo Ann's comments - he has become a relative to all of us!

Thanks ashcon‍ And Kims1961‍ - he’s quite the character. I called his GP’s office the other day, and his assistant confided in me that “he’s my favourite.”

And no, Ann, he has not stopped smoking. Sigh.
