Dental appointment, take two...

The sun is shining, the air is crisp, and it's time for us to go back to the dentist to complete the work that began a week ago. We are crossing our fingers that the UPS guy arrives with the crown prior to our appointment (or we will have to put this off for another day).

The doctor's office called yesterday to set up the appointment for Ken to have his feeding tube(peg) inserted. He'll have it done the day after he has the appointment with the medical oncologist, more blood work, and his CT simulation (Thurs., Feb.2). Happy to finally have the date and really hope this is the end of any and all tests, poking, and prodding before treatment begins. We are getting more than a little antsy for things to get rolling. It's kind of difficult to be told how aggressive the cancer is, and then say it's going to be a month before treatment starts. All we want to do is KILL THE CANCER...NOW!!!

The boys were able to have a nice day together yesterday. After a quick lunch, they headed to a movie matinee (Sherlock Holmes), and went to get their hair cut. Seems like it is getting difficult to have any downtime to just relax and talk and joke around. We grab every moment we can, now, and hope you do the same. Time spent with people you love is irretrievable, yet completely memorable. Gotta make those memories!! Geez, I am sounding like a greeting card...must not be completely awake.

  1. Great post as usual. February 2nd, eh? Almost here!

    The whole idea of grabbing moments and making memories has really stayed with me since all my dad's stuff. I never go an hour now without reminding myself about this. Greeting card or no, it's the truth.

    Gotta run, a certain little rowdypants is demanding a moment right now. :)

    Love to all of you!
