32 Rounds

I had a ct scan on Friday and it showed that everything is stable and my numbers are stable as well at 209. My doctor is very pleased with how well I'm doing. I've been on this 1st line of treatment for 18 months now and he is very happy about that. As of today I've had 32 rounds of chemo.
With no end in sight I have to admit that sometimes it's hard to keep going with a smile on my face.
He also said that it might do me some good to take a break once in while. He said to let him know when I need to take a month off! :) I'm going to take a month off in January. We'll pick Ian up from the airport and go see Valerie and Garrett and their new baby and I will feel good and have energy! Now, that's something to look forward to!

Visiting Family

For lots of reasons we took a family trip on the East Coast. It was so nice to be together again, but this time we saw extended family. We started in Baltimore and made our way up to New York. Baltimore/DC was our favorite! We got to see our cousins and did a lot more site seeing. Thanks MD Goldens for a great time!
It was a blast!.....
Fort McHenry
Washington DC!

We stopped at the 911 Memorial in NYC

We also saw old neighborhood friends, met up with friends from our church, and
saw my Dad's extended family for a Father's Day dinner.
Corey and Ian were missed for this trip!

Both Mom and Dad had to get root canals on the trip! Can you believe it!? They each were having problems with their teeth before the trip, but the cabin pressure on the flight quickened the pain and urgency to take care of it. Luckily they were both able to be fit in at the dentist (one in Maryland and one in New York).
It was a quick trip, but I was so grateful to see my parents and Jason! So blessed that mom was feeling up for the trip. Thanks for the love and support we felt from some of you!
