"Santa Tom" and a friend
Neil ("Santa's" helper and friend)
Seasons greetings to all, boy have I been a blogging slacker.
I have so many things to post and never the time to do it.
So today I will try to better. First of all my father is back
home after another chemoembolization procedure on
December 10. He did fairly well this time, some minor
complications thatresolved themselves. He is still in a lot
of a pain and battling fevers while at home.
We pray that this treatment will dosomething substantial
to the 3 liver tumors that he has.
This is his favorite time of year, he always loved to dress
up in his Santa suit and spend Christmas eve at the local
children's hospital there in Columbia. His health the last
couple of years has just made it impossible to play
"Santa Tom". I posted a couple of pictures above that
I love, these were actually done by a newsreporter a
couple of years ago. The nurses on the Pediatric cancer
floor had the local paper come and do a story on
"Mr Tom" and his yearly visit on Christmas eve to make
sure all of the kids with cancer get something that night
from him. His helper is a great guy named Neil who
volunteered to dress up in that elf suit yearly and go
with Mr Tom to hand out presents.
