The older you get, the simpler your wishes become. You realize that material things aren't all that, and end up wishing for just this — a happy and healthy family. ⁣ ⁣ For the past few months, my father has been going through radiation therapy. And just this week, he "graduated" and had his last session. He's now in such a better place and I couldn't be more grateful. 😊 I would like to wish special thanks to Dr. @magic_mike723 and Dr. Panlilio, who have truly been blessings to our family. Thank you for taking such kind care of my dad. 😊 And of course, thank you to all of you who have sent kind words and prayers for my family and I. It means the world to us. ❤
