    Thanks guys, I had taken off last week as vacation so I could spend
    more time with her, just back from tonight's visit, watched Rat Race
    that made her laugh, which is always a good thing, she tires quickly though.
    We'll find out more from the test taken on Friday sometime this week
    to see if any of the treatments have helped.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you all my friend....keep the faith.

    Thru times like these , it's best to relive the good times vs. looking at what lies ahead.

    Thanks all and Bobby, you're right of course, only made mention just
    to highlight that she's younger than you'd think, since I'm so old ;)
    Long story that I'll not bring out here, suffice to say, my dad's been
    married at least 6 times or more and I met my 'real' mom for the first
    time when I was 18, she called and that's how I found out that who
    I thought was my mom, wasn't, but of course it's the person that raised
    you and that's always been my feeling...although it was a bit disconcerting
    to find that out :)

    Thanks, they are all greatly appreciated!!!
    I just returned from a week's stay in Korea
    for work, no fun or games, just 2 days to get there
    a LONG day of installing two machines, a day
    to exhibit the machines and a day to crate them back up
    and then fly home last night, a very LONG short week!
    So glad to be back.
    Tired but had a nice lunch with at my brother's house with
    my mom and some friends, she's hanging in there but the
    treatments are tough stuff, as we were leaving I took this
    quick photo, not the best lighting but she was leaving so had
    to get as quick as I could;

    Again, thanks for all your thoughts and prayers.

    I don't visit this forum very much and i just saw this.

    Gary, You and your Mom have our Heartfelt prayers.
    May you spend much quality time together, for what remains.
    What will remain are those memories and all that she taught you will live on thru you.
    Be strong.

    Well it's been a while, she's still doing better each day, her hair is growing back, more than I have right now acutally ;)
    Stopped by with my youngest daughter to visit her last night, feeling pretty good so that's always nice to hear,

    a quick photo with my ever present Canon Elph 300HS...

    Appreciate all the prayers, by the doc's reckoning, she shouldn't still be around, glad they are not always right.
