Just a quick update. I am back in Cincinnati for a short while. I had my second surgery in two weeks down in Houston last Thursday. Now I am at home healing up from both. I hope to get the staples out soon. I have already started exercising a little each day and will start some physical therapy soon. I need to get my shoulders back in good shape so I can get on the tennis court and gear up for some summer tournaments.
My break will be short. I head back down to Houston with my dad on the 19th of May. I will begin a three week radiation therapy program. The details oh which I am unsure of at this time, but I will know much more when we get back down there for evaluation by the radiologist.
An update about the t-shirts: I am ending the online sale of them this Friday the 8th of May. I want to get them out to everyone as soon as possible and now that I have some down time, i want to get on top of it. If anyone wants to order one after this Friday, just email me directly and we will figure something out!
A couple people asked about my friend Karie’s Boston Marathon run for Melanoma awareness. She did it through the Shade Foundation of America. Her specific website is http://www.shadefoundation.org/events/2009_Boston_Marathon/KarieSchlukebir
Please check it out. As I mentioned before, once I am healthy I am going to do all I can to raise Melanoma awareness, just as Karie has done. The Shade Foundation is a great place to learn about Melanoma and what you can do to help raise awareness. www.shadefoundation.org
I will drop another note when I am down in Houston for my next treatments. Again, thanks to all for your love and support.
