Dad, Thinking of You

Hola! We arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico yesterday. My parents picked us up at the airport. We spent the night at my sister and brother-in-law's house. While it's great to be back in my home state, our trip to New Mexico is bittersweet. On one hand, we'll be celebrating Kalino's birthday in Taos with all his cousins on Sunday. I'll get see all, but one of my siblings, but I'll also see my cousin and uncle that are feeling the huge loss of losing my Aunt Christine in early June.

I'm also sad and nervous that today my dad has to start radiation treatments in Albuquerque. He'll have to live there Monday - Friday (120 miles away from home) for over 8 weeks. He was diagnosed with prostate cancer almost 7 years ago and had surgery. The radiation is a precautionary step since his PSA numbers have recently started climbing. 

I made this card for him. I used the 100th sketch from Clean and Simple. The sentiment is from the Men of Life set by Papertrey Ink. I don't know who made this lovely paper, but it's been on my shelf for over a year.

Have a lovely day!
