    Dad’s oncologist said it’s a miracle that he’s still alive. He’s doing so well compared to where he was even a week ago.

    He still has pneumonia but it seems like it’s improving. He hasn’t had a fever in days.

    He’s still really weak and requires a lot physical therapy. They said that once he is eating solid food on his own, they’ll probably transfer him to a PT facility. He really would rather stay at Roswell because he’s worried about being under the care of non-cancer doctors. I hope he expresses his concern to the doctors.

    Anyway, he’s doing really well and I told him that I’m really proud of him. He’s a “superman” in my eyes smile .

    Thank for the prayers. I’m so sad that Kathryn’s and Nicole’s fathers are gone. It could have been mine frown . I’ll be sure to appreciate what time we have left.

    Update at 3 pm EST:
    I talked to Dad (didn’t think I’d be doing that again) and he said that they took him off all of the monitors he was on. The physical therapist says that he’s improving a little. He’s scared of his own weakness. I can’t blame him! He’s still not taking anything by mouth. But other than that, he’s doing pretty good. Never thought things would be better (although there’s obviously still a long road to go).

    There goes goes the cycles of those ending their fight and those getting better. Won’t it be wonderful when they understand the diseases enough to control the outcome a little more! They are learning more every day and at least we can all know we contribute to that.
