    Hi Sasha,
    I'm really happy for you all. It seems that your Dad is much better and continuing to improve on that.
    AND, I also detect a wonderful sense of relief in the tone of your post. We are all very glad to "hear" that.

    Now , I'll tell you and your sister, one of natures very best medicines is a daughter's hug, so treat him often!!

    Warmest regards to you, your sister and your Dad,
    zim

    Yes everything is going pretty well my dad has an appointment towards the end of this month. He's now using his cane more often rather than the walker.

    Yes it came back all clear! The doctors there seems shocked that a young person showed up for the free screening. But I say, hey why not?!?! lol
