Not sure what to write so I'm may sound like I'm rambling on. Guess the only thing to say is that my Dad is the strongest person I know. Doesn't matter what he's going through he gets up every morning goes to Timmies to get him and Mom and coffee and a timbit for Buddy, who is his best companion, he treats that dog better then us kids I like to joke him, he then walks to work every day. 5 days a week walks down the hill to work, walks up the hill home for lunch and back down the hill for the rest of his shift. If you know my Dad, you've seen him walking up and down that hill at least twice a day every day. Last Thursday at 7pm Mom and Dad recieved a phone call from the Dr saying they had bad news regarding some medical test he had done the previous week. Acute Meyloid Leukimia was the diagnosis. This morning they got a call they had a bed ready for him at the London cancer clinic. As of now he will be there for 3-4 weeks and we're told that he wouldn't be able to return to work again. My Mom, who has been a PSW for many years doing community home care for many people going above and beyond for her paitents has the kindest heart of any woman i know. When we shared paitients i was so proud to hear the wonderful words from them as to how loving and caring my mom is. It has been a loss to her patients as she has had some health issues, not terminal but to a degree that her drs have advised to stop working. She will not be returning to work anytime soon now that my Dad needs her so much more. Mom will be looking for a place to stay in London so she doesn't have to drive back and forth and can be closer to the man she has been married to for 40 years. Please, if you can donate anything to help my parents make this situation a little less of a financial burden, myself and my sister and brother and all our extended families near and far thank you for your generosity.

It's been awhile, Mom and Dad moved back up to the beautiful Muskoka country, the beautiful town of Huntsville.. dad is doing fantastic, spending his days visiting family, walking his dog, out on family members boats cruising the beautiful lakes of Muskoka and most importantly doing all of this without having to go to the hospital or any doctors appointments for the past few month. We could not have made it through the first few months of his diagnosis if not for the love and support from the great people in our lives, so thank you thank you thank you for all of your monetary donations food dropped off gift cards and prayers. bless you all..

Well Dad's Dr called today with the results of his bone marrow biopsy after this second round of chemo, we could not be more ecstatic that Dad has gone into remission. Mom and Dad go back next week to talk to the Dr about how to maintain the remission. I don't believe this could be possible without all the love and support and prayers of all our friends and family near and far. From the deepest parts of our hearts, thank you to everyone of you.

Well Dad is back in london, for atleast a month, didn't get the news we were hoping for, he is not in remission. The drs told mom that it's a very aggressive cancer and that the prognosis is not good. Not the update I wanted to post but that's the way it is I guess. Please keep the prayers coming that Dad can fight and continue to feel good.

Well things haven't really changed to much, Dad is still fighting hard to kick this cancer crap to the curb. Other than losing his hair, he still feels as well as can be expected. His counts were slowing coming up and it was looking good for him to come home for a week....then his WBC count went down :( we were told he'll need to stay in the hospital untill the second round of chemo late next week. Thanks to everyone for thinking of us and praying for the best. P.S. this picture is the last one taken with hair.
