I apologize for going silent on this blog for a while, but sometimes no news is good news? Hopefully I haven’t worried you.
I’ve actually had very little need to continue updating this blog in recent weeks because Dad has been well enough to stay in touch with friends and family himself, so I’ll consider it a good thing that I’ve been able to keep quiet.
In this case, I’m posting about good news. Great news, actually. It’s been two months since my last post, and I know that because today marks the day my dad completed his classes to become a certified Senior Peer Counselor for San Mateo County.
(I will share more photos in a future post, but we’ve misplaced the cord for the camera.)
For the last two months, Dad has been attending 3-hour classes twice a week to complete this certification program. And meanwhile, he has continued with his chemotherapy treatments with only a short break so that he could visit our family in Chicago for a weekend and celebrate his brother’s birthday there.
His health has remained in good condition and he continues to “make chemo look easy” as his nurses have said in the past. He had a CAT/CT scan two weeks ago and Dr. Huang has confirmed that the results were also stable, so there is no reason to make changes to the treatment Dad’s on.
We appreciate the continued prayers and the warm thoughts that we’re often sent. Please continue to keep Dad in mind.
