Doin' OK

Heather had asked if I could post this morning and give a quick update on how things are going durin gthis round of treatment. So far things seem to be going well considering. When we met with the Doctor he was in a much better mood this time than last. He said of the one tumor of concern that we might have to surgically remove it, but many times all the cells within the tumor are dead as a result of the treatment. We are not sure when or if this will occur, our best guess is after the final round of therapy.

Usually on our trips down here we get through with all of our doctor's appointments by lunch time and then we wait until after 6:00 or later to get a room. This time we got the call while waiting on the doctor that our room was ready. This was awesome since we could get started early. The drugs all started around 6:00PM on Monday.
This round of treatment has definitely been different, but I don't think it has been worse than any of the other rounds (so far, knock on wood, and not just any wood, but a large oversized giant redwood tree). She has battled a headache for this round and some nauseau/vomitting, but all in all she has done very well. She has slept a lot this time, but most of her sleeping is drug induced from medicine to fight the headache.

Last night we were trying to get a skype (webcam) conversation with the kids, but unfortunately had connection problems. Instead I got to play with the webcam in the hospital. I hope you all enjoy the pics.

Dear Cody & Heather,

Always glad to hear from you---but you tell Heather I believe she looks better than you do in these pictures. They are neat, but not sure I want you to do mine!!! I already look THAT bad. What you can't do with these computers!!

Is it hot in Houston? It is awfully hot in Kansas.

Love to you all--

G'ma & G'pa
