    It appears as though we may be planning another trip :)

    Yes, I know...what else is new? But this one is special. Really special.

    For those of you who have traveled with me these past 18 months on the long, and often heartbreaking journey with my father, you know it has not been easy. I don't think I could ever adequately express my gratitude for your support, your kindness, and your laughter during first, his chemo and radiation; and then again during his bypass surgery. You have been a constant source of strength and I am continually amazed at how tightly knit our community is, and remains.

    When my father began cardiac rehab, his therapist told him to set a goal, to think of something he thought he could never do and set his sights on it. And so he did. A few days later he called to tell me that the answer had, in fact, come to him immediately. "I'm going to Disney World!!!" He went on to say that his dream, his goal was that he wanted to be healthy enough to go to Disney World with his grandchildren. Without hesitation I told him that when he was ready, I would make it happen.

    So last week, I received this text from my mom...

    Without doubt...it is! So happy that his rehab is going so well and what a way to celebrate. That is great news! And the trip is just icing on the cake.
