Just re read this whole thread and glad things worked out the way they did, could of been a lot worse, when he started to feel better that was a sign that he's getting through it. Sound like he's got lots of fire left in him.

Daniel I'm so glad to read some good news. Hope you and your family are soon able to go back to your old routines. I know that you will tell Dad that we were praying for his recovery and hope that everything will continue to go well.

That is Fantastic news Dan!! I'm overjoyed that your Dad not only came through the surgery but that he's doing well to boot! I'm sure that fish sandwich didn't stand a chance LOL! All the same, We'll continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers!

...Tuberculous only attached itself to the cancer cells. Then they were able to treat him for TB, by killing the TB, they only killed the cancer cells. I don't know who came up with that, but someone was realy thinking out of the box...

I can't think of anything to say ...but WOW! That's very interesting Brian. Thanks for sharing it.

That's great that your Dad is doing much better Daniel and they found the problem! I am praying that things get turned around for you and the sun will shine for several weeks so you can get caught up in the fields.

Dad drove down here & up the road yesterday. He's feeling much better. He intends to take it easy, but hopes to get some tractor time (lightly) in a couple weeks. If he keeps up like he is right now, I think he'll be ok for some light seat time for short periods. I'm trying to keep everything going smooth so he won't push the envelope on himself. Looking like Monday will be alfalfa cutting day & hope to roll it Wednesday.

Forecast:Monday: A 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 83. East wind around 6 mph.

Monday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 63. Southeast wind between 3 and 6 mph.

Tuesday: Partly sunny, with a high near 85. South wind between 5 and 9 mph.

Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 66.

Wednesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 87.

One might wonder what the weather has to do with dad, but right now it has everything to do with his health & recovery. If I can't keep everything going smooth, he'll wanna jump in & work hard as he can till he hurts himself. So Josh & I have to raise the bar a bit.

Please tell him to enjoy the good weather and take it easy for a while yet. Better yet, ask him to watch you work and offer helpful suggestions as to how you are doing it different from how he would.
That seems to be how my Dad takes it easy when I'm doing something up at the homestead.:D
