I mentioned last week that my Dad was due to have a scan to check the status of his cancer. I knew that he would get the results today so I called him on my way home from work to find out if he had heard anything. It is a chemo week for him so he is usually really nauseous and not feeling so well so I planned to keep it short.
I could tell by the sound of his voice that the results were favorable but sometimes my Dad is hard to read because he tries to stay as positive as possible. He told me that his doctor said that things looked really good and to live his life and do whatever he wants to do. Unfortunately the cancer is still there but has not spread, his organs are healthy, yet the cancer has not gotten any better. That is good news but not necessarily the news that I was hoping to hear. My Dad said that he is grateful and was happy with the news.
The news brightened my evening and I headed to the gym to get an easy 4 four mile run in on the treadmill since it was still 100 degrees at 5pm! I thought of my Dad the whole time and 4 miles became 7!
Average pace of 8:15-I will take that for a Monday!
A huge thank you to everyone who sent my Dad well wishes and kept us in your prayers. The power of prayer is amazing!
