also, thanks to Auntie Meri for helping Dad out with some of his critical paperwork. immensely helpful.
shout-out too to Lia for braving the snowstorm and driving up to Fayetteville this Saturday morning. she's been helping organizing dad's clothes for easier access to his doctor-visit outfits. also, she's been helping around the kitchen and living room, and making a nice little walk-way dad can follow as he does his walking exercises in the house.
last, but not least, thanks too to Gee for passing along some really insightful advice. i paraphrase "essentially, going through cancer and chemo is a world-shaking experience and makes you question all your actions, lifestyle and priorities. as you sift through the shake-up its very helpful to just have somebody around that you can talk with as you assess your new life strategy. the best thing you can do to help someone going through chemo is to be a good-listener." thanks Gee, great advice.
