Winter Update

Dear family and friends,
I've finished another round of scans and, in general, things are looking pretty good.  Navelbine continues to make progress on my liver, lungs and bones, so we are going to stick with it.  I booked my appointments out through June, which will be a year since starting this weekly chemo.  Hard to believe I've been on chemo this long and still feel great and continue to work full time.  

My brain scan showed an increase of the lesion we've been keeping an eye on, so the plan is to treat it with cyberknife.  The procedure hasn't been scheduled yet, but will likely be in the next couple weeks.

Aside from that, things are going really well.  We had a fabulous trip to Hawaii with our friends, Nate and Luanne.  We rented an amazing house, overlooking the ocean.  Nothing like warm, sunny weather to lift your spirits in the middle of winter.  We are very grateful for my mom, who took care of the dogs while we gone.

My friend, Wendy, continues to join me each week for chemo and I'm so thankful to have her company.  

Thanks for continued well wishes and support!
