Dad, 1; Cancer, 0

Let’s interrupt this despairing parade of horrible weather to bring some good news:

My Dad has been declared cancer free! Yay!!!!

They’re going to continue to check him every couple of months, which is normal, but for right now it’s nice to catch a break. I don’t know what the recurrence rate is for this particular cancer, and I’ve decided I don’t want to know; for now it’s great that he’s beaten it.

I am so relieved to hear this. I have been praying every day since you asked...what, a year ago? Glad to see this came true.

Well, let's see ... I got the call while on vacation in Missouri, so it would have been in July. This whole thing's been going on for only half a year. Seems like so much longer ...

The prayers are much appreciated! People have been praying for Dad from four different continents and a few dozen states.
