It has been a while since we have really dedicated any time to the blog, partly due to the fact that my dad was recovering from his treatment. And I am happy to say - at least for now - things are looking good and he is on the right path.
A little less than a year ago, I posted a photo of my dad (with the intent to embarrass him for all the photos he posted of me) as he was getting fit and ready for shark diving. See below:
Well, after having his stomach removed, months of intense treatment (radiation and chemo), he has finally been able to get back to somewhat of a "normal" life...the photo below was taken a few days ago:
Still some weight to be put back on - but definitely on the right path.
Says my old man:
This is the result of two weeks at the gym, hahahahahaha!! ---------- there is no other way to regain the muscle mass I lost due to the operation and the chemo and radiation therapies.
The last CAT scan, done early this week, was "clean". Thus, things don't look as bad as I thought - so far. ... The best news: In 5 weeks I will be back in the Bahamas to pet my striped babes!"
Originally I had planned to only spend one week out there with the Wolf - but after everything that we have been through this year I figured I might as well get as much down and shark time with him while I can...
