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.
