Houston Round 2

March 23rd, 2009

Hey everyone,

I’ve had a very nice break in-between treatments.  I really enjoyed spending time with great friends in Steamboat, Denver and Cincinnati.  I am so thrilled that I was able to attend Sarah and Danny’s wedding yesterday.  I had a great time, and congrats to you both!  It was such a joy for me to be able to have a fun night out with awesome friends.

My parents and I arrived in Houston, Texas tonight.   I will be admitted to the ICU at MD Anderson Cancer Center  tomorrow (Monday) afternoon for round two of my treatments.  Like last time, I will spend the week in the ICU receiving high dose Interleukin-2 (IL-2).  Last round, I was given nine doses (bags) of the drug before it became too much for my body to handle. I hope my body is strong enough to handle even more this time.

After this week I will head back to Colorado for some rest and relaxation before I have to come back to Texas for round three.

I want to thank you all for your continued support, prayers, cards, letters, e-mails and wall postings.  I want you to know it means a lot to me.  It’s a blessing to have such amazing friends and family.

Love,
Andy
