Doctors apt & Adrienne update

Adrienne made it through her bi-lateral procedure but had some bleeding and was put on the ECMO to allow her heart and lungs to regain their strength and adjust from the procedure (note: lung transplant is a dramatic procedure). She is progressing nicely though, I hope she continues to show such good signs as she is showing now.

My first doctors apt. of the year, I think I will break my record from last year....I think I will be over the out of pocket limit (money I have to spend) by mid February this year; verses the end of March last year.

Adrienne got the call (2 new lungs)

Adrienne my lung cancer bud here in TX just got the call for her transplant at UT Southwestern. I will be up all night just like with my bud Bo when he got his transplant I was like an expecting father. Glad I don't have to go to work on Friday.

Sad news

I was saddened by a Christmas card I got the other day. The card was from the family of one of my cancer homiees in Palo Alto, CA. It told me about how the family was doing and informed me the Sharron had passed away several months ago. Sharron was a great friend I really enjoyed her and her family they really helped me out during my time in CA. Sharron showed me the ropes of how to deal with cancer she will be forever missed.

This is a picture of the LSLW "live strong live well" group at the Palo Alto (Page Mill Rd.) YMCA. This was my cancer workout group, the picture was taken Sept. 2006. That is Sharron front row center.

Return to Work

Well on Monday I will happily return to the salt mines although it will be vastly different as I try to transition so I can get to work early. Butt early, O dark hundred early (i.e by 6 AM CST) so that I can pick up the girls, get their homework done, and shuttle them off to their extra curricular activities. This transition will be hard, I think Ravyn summed it up best (we are not morning people, like Rhonda and Raegan) she commented one December morning that Raegan uses too many words in the morning.

Happy New Year

football, football and more football

I hope I stay out of the Spa this year as my health care has undergone a dramatic change for 2010.
