My dad has always always had a great sense of humor and has always loved Halloween. Yesterday we dressed up as Edna & Tracy Turnblad from the movie Hairspray. He had chemo this week so this was our afternoon outting. I dropped him off at the door and my the time I parked the Suburban and walked in, there was already a crowd of nurses and my dad was so pleased with putting smiles on everyone's faces.
To our surprise, it was such a hit that they called the local paper and they came out to interview him. I hope that we get another Halloween to celebrate again together. Cancer can be really ugly, but as scripture tells us in Proverbs 17:22, "A joyful heart is good medicine." And my dad is joyful.
