The LONG and winding road...

Today has been a very trying day. Thankfully, Ken has weathered his radiation, appointment with medical oncologist, and chemotherapy like a champ! We have been able to rearrange some of our upcoming appointments to allow for a more smooth transition from radiation to chemo, allowing for less waiting and earlier completion of therapies on Tuesdays. Thank you to Dr. Wu for understanding how taxing this has all been on Ken, and offering to come in and see him between 7:15 and 8:00 a.m., which lets him start his chemo earlier and be home in time to get a complete nights rest before our early start on Wednesday. (We LOVE Dr.Wu!!)

We want to take this opportunity to give a most heartfelt thank you to Ken's friends/co-workers at Janosiks for their absolutely unbelievable thoughtfulness and generosity. To say we are grateful and overwhelmed...an understatement at best. We appreciate you all so very, very much! We are so sorry that Ken was not up to visiting the day y'all called, but we know you understand that this is very much a day by day, hour by hour illness. But, you know Ken. He's not going to let this keep him down for long.

Time to get some rest! At 4:00 a.m. we hit it again!! (Yes, there will be pictures again...soon.)
