The Sweet Sound of Ringing

We reached another milestone today, Dad had his last radiation treatment!  Mom surprised him and was there to catch him ringing the bell with all of the staff cheering as he left.  Everyone was a little emotional as this has been a crazy roller coaster of emotions over the last couple of months (I was crying in an aisle at Target when Mom sent me the video of Dad ringing the bell).  We wanted to say thank you again for all of your love and support throughout the first part of our journey.  For the next month we will be resting, recuperating and enjoying time with our family and and friends and will not be making any posts unless something changes.  We are hoping to post great news after Dad's next appointment on June 12th.  We love you all! [...]
