Just a hello to my friends here at healing well. I have not logged on in quite a while but think of you guys often. I try to visit the chat rooms on Wednesday evenings. I haven't noticed anyone in there the past couple times (although I didn't look last night; ya know Glee was on and well that's my show). Is there a new time?? My dad is doing fantastic. No new news yet. I am not sure when he starts radiation. He needs to get all healed up from surgery first. As for me, I'm about to finish student teaching and GRADUATE college! SO excited!! David, read your posts, very glad you are almost finished with radiation. Hang in there!! Thank you everyone so much for being there for me in my time of need. You may never know the amount of relief you brought to me.
