Happy New Year!

I'm glad to hear your dad is cancer-free! That must be a relief. :)

Hilary - Thanks! Happy New Year, and I appreciate your thoughts on my Dad. I hope we get to enjoy his company for much longer.

Golden Eagle - Thanks! And Happy New Year to you too! It is a relief to have those tests and procedure results come back with a clean slate. He'll have to test again in six months just to make sure, but we are rejoicing!
