Mile Marker 26


I posted a short update in the column to the right. In short, I have a CT scan scheduled for Friday. On 9/3 we'll meet with my oncologist to look over the pictures and confirm that we've melted the tumors.

We're looking forward to sharing good news!

And Their off!!

Good Morning,

Andy and Liv went back to school this morning and it is really weird having the house to myself. Mark is in Chicago meeting with McDonald's and returns tomorrow. He has finished his treatment and will have another scan in a few weeks. They gave him something called Neulasta after this last cycle. It is a one time injection given to stimulate white blood cells in his bone marrow. This will hopefully keep him out of the hospital this round. For the price ($8,000), it should also do my dishes.

We hope to gain some sort of normalcy and routine in the coming weeks. We are totally engrossed in the Olympics and watch every night. Now that Andy is a swimmer, it makes it much more exciting to watch. Go Phelps!
