The little BIG victories

June 13th, 2007

On our first family visit to meet my dad’s new oncologist back in March, everyone was nervous to find out exactly what he was going to be facing in the upcoming months. With a PSA of 2700 and a bone scan that made most of his bones look like they could break at any moment, it felt dyer.

Four months, several hormone and bone strengthening treatments later, his PSA level is back in the normal range at a whopping 3.9. His oncologist almost fell out of her chair with excitement.

If you know my dad at all, you know he is a man of great faith. He also is and a man of great humor. And back on that first day with the oncologist, when the air in the doctors office was so heavy it was hard to breath, he looked at all of us and said, “I look IT in the face everyday and I say…FUCK YOU DEATH!”

And with that said, all we could do was laugh.
