Thank You Knitters...

... and crocheters! A delayed big thank you to all of my wonderful crafty friends who have sent hats for the Chemo Cap drive in honor of my Mom & Dad! Please forgive me for being so late in posting pics of the caps, but they are still trickling in and every time I thought I had a photo of them all, a few more arrived!

For those with a keen attention to detail, yes, that is Tut's nose in the bottom of the pic... keeping a close watch over the caps...

I have 28 -and counting!- beautiful, colorful, amazing caps ready to send up! Mom will personally deliver them to the chemo center where both she and my Dad have had treatments in the past year. I still haven't told her just how many I've collected, so I can't wait for her to find this post!

In no particluar order, special thank you from my family to Dianne, Katie, Grace, Chan, MaryBeth, Gaylen, Nancy, Mary, Joanne, Ellen, Cheryl, and a host of blogless Purling Petals; Sylvia, Marlana, Marlene, Pam, Cheryl and Norma! You ladies are all absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much for giving your time & energy to this chemo cap drive! The hearts of knitters are simply amazingly large...

I hope everyone will continue to work on chemo caps and deliver them to your local cancer centers, other cap drives, etc. If anyone doesn't have an outlet, please feel free to send more our way and my Mom will glady deliver them. We actually found out that the cancer center in Gloucester does not currently have any group who knits & donates for them, so they are very much anticipating this delivery!

A quick update... my Dad visited his throat specialist today and although he's still in quite a bit of pain, the doctors say things are progressing well. We will know more after his PET scan on Nov. 12th. He is still using the g-tube and is having a bit of a rough time, but I know he'll get through it... after all, he's my Dad.....

What a lovely bunch of caps! Good job! Sorry your dad is having a rough time, but you're right - if he has just an ounce of your determination, he'll do great! Hugs all around.
