Kelly here. The kids went home with Mary yesterday. Snow in Chicago delayed their plane for almost two hours, but they made it safely home. Thank you, Tony, for braving the elements to pick everyone up at the airport! We had a great time with the kids. The weather was beautiful in Houston, so they enjoyed running around the pool and sitting in the cabanas at the apartment complex. Aubrey spent most of the weekend working on projects from a cool fashion design book that my friends at work gave to her. So, Regan spent most of her weekend begging to use Aubrey's fashion design book and lamenting Aubrey's miserly tendencies. Jack spent the weekend in his underpants and Spiderman gloves galloping from room to room on all fours. (Don't ask).
Today Jeff and I spent all day at various doctors appointments. Jeff had his PET scan and CT scan. He also had some blood tests and had the dressings changed on his Groschong catheter. We won't know the results of the BIG scans until Thursday at our appointment with Dr. Legha, but we were informed today that the blood tests came back "good." Also, Dr. Legha's assistant said that she already made arrangements for Jeff to check into the hospital for Cycle Three of biochemo on March first, so we are glad that the doctor is proceeding with optimism. Remember, the results of these scans will determine whether Jeff gets to continue with his biochemo regimen or if he has to abandon the protocol. So far, all indications are that the treatment is working and he will be allowed to continue. However, there is a possibility that it is not, so we are very anxious about the test results. Jeff has been collected and resolute about the whole thing. I have to admit--I've been very nervous. We have a euphemism where I come from about the digestion and ultimate disposition of some "bricks" that more accurately describes my sentiments, but it is not fit for publication here. (Tee hee!).
So, we will update all of you as soon as the test results are available. In the meantime, it's time to really turn up the heat and pray hard for good scans and that Jeff can continue his treatment. In the meantime, thanks to everyone for continuing to check-in on the blog and for your consistent interest in Jeff's progress. It's great to know that you are all looking out for us.
