He Did It!!

On our way home yesterday we stopped so Dad and Sharon could eat something. He was doing a lot better than he did the first time out. He didn't look as tired. He was even laughing and picking on himself about little things, which is a good thing. He said he was ready to shave his head, so I called my brother when we got home. I asked him if he thought he could do it. He shaves his friends heads in the summer. Of course he said Yes!

This is a picture of dad getting ready for Kim to start.

This is the first swipe with the razor.

He couldn't believe he was doing it. To tell you the truth, I couldn't believe he was doing it. Dads hair always had to be perfect.

It really didn't seem to bother him.

Kim seemed to have a good time. I think in a way it made him feel closer to Dad.

I probably shouldn't have put this picture on, but it made me laugh. He was looking for a hat to wear and he came out of his room with this hat on. There is a family story about an orange hunting hat that I will have to share with you sometime soon.

If Jerzie only knew how bad her grandpa needed that hug and to hear her say "Love You" today. That smile on his face says it all. We all had dinner together before Kim cut Dads hair. I really think he needed all of us today. He had a good day! He even had us laughing so hard that we were crying!!

God bless him! It is amazing how your vanity can go out the door when a disease like cancer comes into your life. He looks really good! He is in my prayers every day.
