Live Strong!

From The Wife:
M&M is doing well so far in his start of his last cycle of chemo round 4. Today is day 2 and their is only 3 more days to go. Three days around the corner seems like it will never get here fast enough for M&M.

All the nurses love M&M. You can say that he is the ideal patient. He is quiet and really doesn't demand much attention while at COH. The nurse that we had today was feeling a little guilty because he wasn't asking for anything and she would come in and check up on him to make sure he didn't need anything, which was pretty funny.

He was moved to the big hospital today which was nice. I feel like his spirits are lifted here than when he is at the old hospital in the corner room.

Just hang in their honey, the treatment is almost over and you will be back home in your own bed soon!

Round 4 Chemo: Bahhhh!!!

It was good talking to Moshura today. Round Three chemo sounds like it was a bigger pain in the arsch than Round Four, but not because Round Four is a cakewalk, but because of the lack of sleep and all of the details, disruptions and delays associated with having chemicals pumped into your veins for a week!! We can't wait to see Moshura come home and stay on top at this next round. We love you!!

We're Rich!!!

O.K. far from it!! I mean "rich" metaphorically.... with love and support :) I heard you guys had a great weekend celebrating Caballito's bday and Marco's return home after his chemo. It looks like you guys were having a good time, and I see I was there in spirit...or rather, encased in a small glass frame!

Well, looks like times are really tough now and there's a lot of work to be done, questions to be answered about health insurance, work, economic recovery, all the pains and hardships that a disease like this can put an entire family through. So we are here if you need help. Please just let us know how we can help and we can work through these tough times!!

What if Stem Cells Cured Sarcoma?

I don't know, I was just thinking what a great thing it would be if the possibility to cure certain cancers was within our reach in this lifetime. Anything's possible. Check out the information on Stem Cell Research for some interesting presentations on the subject.
