Good news, everyone!

And now, an email from my mother:

Gary just returned from his three month check-up with his oncologist, following his last chemo treatment.

And...Great News! Nothing. Zip. Zero. Nada. Everything checked out...there is no sign of any recurrence or anything mildly worrisome. In fact, [his doctor] does not want to see him again til after Thanksgiving.

To be sure, Gary was thoroughly poked and prodded, with this wonderful news the only outcome.

We realize that our journey is just that...still a journey, but the signposts are painted in positive colors and the sunshine is a bit brighter today.

We didn't get here alone...your love, support and prayers are as strong a medicine as the chemotherapy and it sustained us through the past months and nourishes us for the days ahead.

It's excellent news!

Dad's oncologist was actually really impressed with Dad and his progress. For the intensive chemo he underwent, he only had a little hair loss and mild fatigue. He was certainly lucky and fortunate. I'm really thrilled that, thanks to his oncologist, I get to have my dad around for years to come.
