Fall update

Dear family and friends,
Sorry it has been a while since I've given an update, things are going really well health-wise.  My latest CT scan looked great, the tumors in my liver are shrinking while my bone and lung lesions are stable.  My latest brain MRI looked fine, there was a tiny increase in one of the lesions, but the doctors are not worried, so we will continue to watch and wait.   The plan is to continue with weekly Navelbine.  My wonderful friend, Wendy, keeps me company every week, which is awesome.

Jake and I have had a wonderful fall/early winter.  We had a wonderful trip to Chicago in October for the baptism of our sweet niece, Ainslie.  She is adorable!  We had a nice Thanksgiving in Seattle with Jake's mom, Tanya, and my brother, Bill.  Jake cooked a turkey on the grill this year, which was delicious!

Thanks for the continued love and support.
