Cinnamon Rolls!

Well he did it .... Sunday after church Dad had hot fresh cinnamon rolls ready for us.

I'm not sure who enjoyed them more - Dad or the grandkids. Dad is doing very well. He has not been back to the doctor or hospital for IVs since he left the hospital on December 15. He is able to eat and drink enough to stay hydrated. Now, we have to work on getting a few more pounds on him. Dad is still quite thin and weak. But, he continues to work hard in physical therapy to improve his strength and mobility. While Dad was in the hospital, a test was performed to measure the effectiveness of the chemo in treating his disease. The test showed a decrease in the amyloidosis ratio. The explanation of the results was a bit technical for all of us, but the doctor was pleased and said Dad is moving in the right direction. We continue to be encouraged by Dad's slow and steady progres.

Thanks for all your prayers and visits! You all mean so much to Mom and Dad! We will all be together at Mom and Dad's Christmas Day and I'm sure we'll have more pictures to post. Merry Christmas!
