Delays and Ironies
Monday, March 02, 2015      5 comments

This morning Danny seemed to be feeling a bit better than he had the previous couple of days. We headed to the clinic for his scheduled chemo. Before anything else, I asked Dr. Gidvani to look at the bruise on his back where he had had six pre... Read more
Back pain

Not a great week for Danny, although it should have been. The first part of the week he was indeed feeling well, and back to his old self. Which typically means that he talks my ear off, usually about his games. And we were on a litt... Read more

I haven't updated much on Danny in awhile, just occasional status updates. After the long week of chemo every day, which I described in my last Danny update, he had blood counts done Monday and then Friday of that week. The counts were pretty ... Read more

An aunt of mine died last summer at age 102. I never actually met her, although I had met her husband (my father's older brother) once at my grandmother's funeral. They lived all the way across the country from us, and, for whatever reason(s),... Read more
How Danny is doing
Wednesday, February 11, 2015      4 comments

Still don't have the pictures on the computer, so that will have to wait. But I thought I would at least update on how Danny is doing. The treatment regimen he is on is very, very hard on him. I am not sure why, but it almost seems to be ... Read more

Life has gotten away from me recently, such that my blog posting has almost stopped. I am unhappy with myself over this, but it has been tough. Good old Mr. Murphy also got involved...about two weeks ago, I had typed out a long blog and was al... Read more
Danny treatment update, part 2
Wednesday, December 31, 2014      6 comments

Danny just couldn't seem to get a break. It was a real roller coaster ride for a while. He would seem to be doing well, and then crash back down. Then it would happen again. :-( Monday the 15th, when he had chemo again, he seemed to be a... Read more
Danny treatment update
Wednesday, December 31, 2014      1 comments

In the last blog I wrote about Danny and his treatment, I got to the end of the first week of the new chemo protocol. After that, I had high hopes that he would bounce back to his normal self quickly. Unfortunately, my hopes were not realized.... Read more

A lot has gone on with Danny and his treatment since I last blogged about it. I will hopefully get caught up on what is going on with him next time, but I thought Christmas was a better topic today. This Christmas was a bit tough for me, s... Read more
First Week of Chemo
Wednesday, December 17, 2014      4 comments

I have been very neglectful of this blog lately. Partly it's because I have had so much to do, what with Christmas, and partly it's because Danny's chemo hasn't gone smoothly at all, to put it very mildly. I will try to consolidate a whole lot... Read more

After an enjoyable, if brief, visit with our friends in New Jersey last Monday, Henry, Danny, and I drove to my mother's house on Tuesday morning. It was very good to see her again, even though she had aged in the two years since I had last see... Read more
Update from DC and parts beyond :-)
Monday, November 24, 2014      4 comments

I just realized I am a bit behind in updating. After the last blog, I did speak to Dr. Whiteway, who confirmed that our DC/PA trip was a go. I am so relieved and happy and grateful to God and to all who have prayed for us and for Danny. B... Read more

After a day of absolutely crushing scanxiety (cancer parent word), stomach in knots, crying at the least provocation, etc., I was soooooooooooooo relieved to hear (preliminary read by Danny's dad) that his MRI looks stable after the surgery. Th... Read more
Treatment plan
Wednesday, November 19, 2014      3 comments

Again I am having a hard time making myself post updates. I am not sure why. Perhaps it is that it seems worse to write stuff down. In any event, I am forcing myself, and maybe it will be therapeutic. Sunday Danny and I headed to Houston... Read more
Update on Danny and me
Thursday, November 13, 2014      5 comments

I am really having to fight myself to post updates about Danny anymore. I am just so sad and discouraged that I don't feel like writing anything. Not that there is a lot of new bad news, but any is too hard for me. Let's see...the Novarti... Read more
