5th Chemo Session

Karen's doing well. We're back to reality today with another bout of chemo. Dave took her to Overlook today (thanks Dave) and she's home with pump at the moment. Karen's blood counts are good so no Neulasta this time around so we're hoping for a good week.

I have a lot of folks to thank tonight. First and foremost huge thanks goes out to Dori Howe & the Howe family who loaned us their beautiful beach house in Long Beach Island this past weekend. Karen and I had a wonderful and restful few days there. It's no exaggeration when I say this is a gorgeous house in a one of a kind location as close to the beach as you can get. Karen got some much needed rest and relaxation whilst I jogged around the island. We even did some star gazing from the rooftop deck. We are both so grateful to have been able to avail of it and will not soon forget our time there. Thanks guys.

We couldn't have gotten away were it not for the hard work of Sarah (thanks sis), Chris & Kate who looked after the kids whilst we were gone. The kids had a great time and it's always nice to know they are in safe hands.

Keep your head up, guys! I know it's hard. Maggie and I are right there beside you and hoping for the best. She's pretty sick of studying but it's all over next week - yup, the bar is next week finally! Then she's back home for good. Take care and here's to getting that fever down.
