We are still at the beach, this morning me and my lady watched the sunrise accompanied by the sounds of the surf washing onto the sands and the seagulls rejoicing in the skies.
When we left on thursday morning (July 12th) to journey to the beach, I told myself I was not going to think about
July 12th being the anniversary of when I was dx'ed with this crap. We arrived, checked in, and than went looking for and found Gigi and her parents. Shortly after our other daughter and her boyfriend arrived. Off we went to the beach, sent up this small pop up tent thing I purchased from Costco. A cooler filled with soda, water and beer came along on our trip to the beach - and two kites! The seven of us had a great time! Lots of laughs. I had not flown a kite in like forever!
Back to the hotel we journeyed, were sitting near the pool - Gigi and her parents were the first to drift away, than my wife had to follow to see Gigi, me and daughter and her bf sitting still, than daughter goes up to Gigi's room, than her bf - ok what gives as none are making it back (this all in the space of a hour). I'll wait someone will come get me sooner or later. And yes! I hear "DAD!!"
Up to Gigi and her parents room - walk in - dark and light blue ballons, dark and light blue streamers hung corner to corner.
Both Daughters - wearing T-shirts "My Dad is my Hero" - with the prostate cancer ribbon on the T-shirts
Wife, Frank (Gigi's Dad), Tom (Linda's BF) wearing T-shirts "No One fights alone" - with the prostate cancer ribbon.
Gigi - with a Prostate Cancer Sucks Button
Me - blinks blinks - tears well up.
I get a "Hero" TShirt with the Prostate cancer ribbon on it.
Champage toasts (with blueberries) offered to Dad. Hugs all around.
Walked a few blocks to a little seafood restaraunt - everyone wearing the T-Shirts
darn I am one lucky lucky man!
Life is Beautiful!
My ladies (wife and daughters) and my son-in-law have been at my side since the beginning of this journey.
WE will beat this crap! - Together WE will beat this crap.
