Strains of INXS

"...this time, will be the last time...."

Okay, that was a stretch. Unless you were 16 in 1986 you probably won't know that one. But I digress....

We're done with round 4 and boy was this kid excited today. He was sitting up in bed quietly waiting for me to get up this morning, and when I finally did (after a really horrible night) he was Mr. Chatterbox. He totally knew he was getting out today. It was great.

On top of that, he didn't want to play on the computer at all. He asked once and that was it. The past few days we've watched him turn into an egghead before our very eyes..... gettin' his geek on!

I suppose the upside is that he's finally improving his fine motor skills (there ya go Ms. Debbie, he'll be all set when he gets back to class!). Mousing like a madman. He even rearranged part of my desktop, though I think it was unintentional, I suppose it's only a matter of time.

So yeah, we're out, and we're looking forward to a busy couple of weeks. Tomorrow I'll be working the election all day, and then CBC's and blood work on Wed. and Fri. The benefit dinner on Sat. (see 2 posts below for info - should be a lot of fun.) The following week is the big one: PeT scan on Wed and CT & bone scans on Fri. That Sat. we should have word. Don't worry, you'll all be receiving invitations to the Ben & Jerry's fire sale prior to that.....

In other news, and it's good news; Dante's AlphaFeta Protein level is 49 as of last Wed. (pre rnd. 4 chemo). Previously he was at 600 (post rnd 2) and our target is 20, so we're heading in the right direction.

Pop quiz for you trivia buffs: anyone recall what his starting level was back in August? Hint: it had more than 3 zeros on the end.

Once again I'd like to remind everyone to take a look at the info regarding the upcoming benefits. They're posted below, and we'll send out a last minute note later this week, but we'd love to see all your smiling faces out there.

More soon.

- Chris
