Man with a Mission

Sunday, September 17, 2006


Well I have now been done with treatments almost 2 weeks now. All I can say is, I feel great. The redness around my head has just about gone and the scar is beginning to flaten. Still losing a little hair but it should start to grow back in about a week or week and half.

I have been spending lots of time with Skye and Alec. Alec is growing by leaps and bounds. The back molers are now coming in so he can be a little fussy, but he's still an amazing little kid. He just said his first string of words this weekend "more milk". We went apple picking this weekend with a couple of friends and their son. Alec loved seeing the animals and riding the train. And yes he did actually pull some apples off of the trees. Can't wait for punkin picking.

The wedding last week was wonderful and beautiful. The rain hit about 2 hours before the wedding but after that the night was clear. For their wedding cake, they had individual flavored cupcakes decorated with real flowers. Yummmmmmm..... It was great to see Brain and Kerri so happy.

This week is my last week before I start work (as long as the paper work is correct now, long story.) I'm looking forward to the challanges and getting to see everyone at Trisept again. I know it will be a adjustment again especially for Alec who has gotten used to seeing and having me around all day, but he will figure out the new routine. As we all will.

That's all for now...

An Update Finally...

Hi everyone!

I know I have been slacking this week. Actually this has been a very long week. The doctor appointments have been taking longer. I guess they want to get their last words in. Yes that is right the count is now down to Monday and Tuesday (weeeeeeeeeeeeee…yes that is me jumping up and down and just smiling). I have also been fighting off a cold, not too bad just a running nose and a little congestion, lets hope it stays that way. My energy has also been a little low this week, but the cats do not seem to mind as they always argue on who will lay next to me for the morning and mid-afternoon nap.

Other updates:
For those of you I have not yet told, I will be returning back to work full-time on September 25th 2006. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at Trisept again and to the challenges of the every changing Internet/technology. By the way the new UV site looks great everyone, glad to see the site has launched.

I have also found out which group for the study I will be in. I will be in Group A. This will be the standard treatment. I will take the Chemo pill for 5 days each month for about 1 year. I will start this in early October.

Art update:
We drove down to Chicago about 1 ½ weeks ago now and picked up the kiln. I must say it’s a beautiful piece of machinery. I have a friend coming over to help set up the electrical outlet, so hopefully we will be fusing glass very soon. Once we have something done I will post a couple of pictures.

Well, that is all for now and it is getting a little late. Until next time.
