Forever Grateful

I'm baaaaaack!

Daily Gluttony wants to thank all of you for your kind words regarding my Dad's illness. Your thoughts really meant the world to me. Unfortunately, my Dad was unable to go through the major surgery on his pancreas because they'd found that the cancer had spread. The good news is, though, that my Dad is stronger than ever after all the quality time our family got to spend together over the last couple of weeks and after hearing that there is still much hope to keep his illness under control using chemo, Chinese Medicine, nutrition and exercise. I think the thing he's most upset about is that his diet is now completely vegan! Despite his illness, my Dad is still the same loveable guy. In fact, my Dad is such a bad-ass that he cooked a huge dinner for all of us the night before the supposed surgery and insisted on cooking for us every day after getting out of the hospital! Nor have my parents lost their "charm" after all the recent stress...

(Upon receiving a fruit basket delivery from my Dad's friends)
Mom: WAAAH! These things are expensive!
Dad: You can check how much it was on the internet.

You gotta love them.

Thank you all again for your thoughts, and please always keep my previous post's message in mind: Live each day to its fullest, never take anything or anyone for granted, and cook and eat with lots of love.

Look for new posts very, very soon!

Pam, bienvenidos. Glad to hear things will be okay with the chemotherapy. I recently had a friend go through chemo for lymphnodic cancer. It was a hard time for him, his friends and family, but our presence and continual support brightened his day.

The chinese thing to do is not open the fruit basket, and pass it on to the neighbors. haha.
