Hi all,

Mom and I got home just a little while ago after driving through a terrible storm.  Glad to get off the highway. 

It was a tough day today.  Everything went very well, we couldn’t have asked for it to be better.  However, leaving Mike at the hospital was very hard.  We finally had to just take off because mom, Mike and I were all dreading saying goodbye. 

The nurses and the whole staff were great.  He will begin to get some pre-chemo drugs tonight and then tomorrow will begin his first of four days of chemo. 

Mike had a lot to take in and was a little overwhelmed with all of the hospital ways, taking vitals every 4 hours even through the night, blood draws early in the morning, tracking fluid intake and out, etc.  We told him that the staff would help him remember everything.  It just takes some getting used to. 

Well, I need to go to bed because I need to go home tomorrow and see my family.  Hopefully I’ll get back to see Mike next week.  I will be calling him daily and checking in on what’s been happening so that I can post a note to all of you.

Thanks again for all our thoughts and prayers.  They really get us through the tough times.

love, Ann
