With my birthday this week, our anniversary next week and a little encouragement from my inlaws, Mike bought me an inexpensive computer and now I am not computerless. Whew! I have everything from organizing who is coming to help me to keeping in touch with those back home via the computer. Who knew we were so dependant on it?
Well Kevin has had a great week, so we have done touristy things. Grammie and Pappy are here to help and they leave right before it gets ugly around here (how lucky are they?) Kevin has a long day at the hospital on Friday, full of MRI's and a lumbar puncture to monitor if any cancer cells are trying to rear their ugly head. Please pray any cancer cells are forever gone from his body. I think these scans will forever be nerve racking.
Here are pictures of this past week:
I also came across an article about improving chemo therapies for brain tumors. You can read the article here: Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center have coined a simple formula that predicts how well a certain chemotherapy will work for targeting brain and other nervous system cancers. The formula, which publishes mid-July in Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, is pegged to two important proteins that compose such hard-to-kill tumors - one of which, ironically, makes them so drug-resistant in the first place.
