View from my dinner table

I’m back in Ft. Lauderdale.

Table for one oceanfront at Casablanca. One of my favorite places.

I took a walk on the beach both before and after dinner. I got the news today that my father’s cancer has returned. There is not much that can be done this time due to his age, the location, his overall physical health and mental status. I last wrote about him HERE.

I am not upset, just contemplative. This will not be easy. Most of all I will be there for my mother. She’s a strong little woman. She gave me my outlook on life and work ethic (she still works part time at 83). I’m blessed by these gifts.

The full moon was there for me after dinner was done. Like a guide out over the Atlantic.

  1. News about your father that you and everyone close to him could have well done without. Very sorry indeed about it. Wishing you and yours strength through coming times.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with you. My mother had lung cancer surgery at 84 followed by chemo and radiation. My mother never fully recovered from the ordeal. My mother thought she would magically recover and never did any physical therapy until it was too late. My mother was afraid of dying and probably would have cut off an arm to live. It was sad

  3. Sorry to hear about your Dad. You are a good Son and I am sure your Mom will appreciate your support and help. Good luck on this journey. I am sure it won’t be easy. Keeping you in my thoughts…….

  4. Sad news indeed. We know this eventually comes to us but no matter what we do it doesn’t make it easy.
    I am glad to see you are surrounded by well-wishers. at times like these what we have is each other.
