Just for Papa...

How is this for ya Papa???
I do want everyone to know that even though Papa Acker is going through his chemo and been a little up and down, he was still at the Buddy Walk. If you haven't been over to his blog is a quick update. He just finished his second round of chemo. The first round went pretty good. He now has a new do, or I should say lack there of...shiney bald and he actually pulls it off pretty well. I think he thinks he is tough now:) His started to lose a bit of hair, tried blaming the cats for shedding, when actually it was him. So in honor of his shiney new do, Jason wanted to do the same. So Saturday morning before the walk, Jason went shiney as well. I didn't think I'd like it, but I actually did. Anyways Papa had a little spell of forgetfulness, which is another side effect of the chemo, other than that he was feelin pretty good. Round 2 was this last Friday and so far so good. We sure do appreciate you keeping him in your thoughts and prayers.

If you get a chance leave him a comment on his blog, he would LOVE IT!!!

Ha! Thanks guys. Seems like I'm always taking the pictures and never get to be in one. I'll bet the first picture makes Jason a little nervous though.. I look like a fat Jason! or he's a skinny me. Momma always says we're two peas in a pod and now she has visual evidence. Thanks for the "solidarity doo" Jason. I love ya dude! And the second picture is pretty cool too. My big ol' mean pickup and my little onry grandson.. two of my favorite things. (By the way, me and Zach ARE tough!)

I had fun at the Buddy Walk. We had a great time together as a family and we got to honor our little Angel. She's still doin' her thing and bringing us together isn't she?! Papa loves you Gabbers! You've done more to bring our family together than most people will ever know.

I love you guys!
Papa Acker
