And So We Say Goodbye

As some may have heard we spent our Christmas escaping tradition and chose instead to wash our sorrows in the salt water of the Carribean Island of the Dominican Republic.

The Angel on Our Tree

Setting out the Christmas decorations each year is always nostalgic. Some decoartaions have been passed down from older generations and some just remind us of previous years.

That’s what I did. I got up and left Savannah with her Ipad and took the usual route to the cafeteria where I was greeted by the staff

D Days

Today was a D Day. I Hate D Days. When you get as far as we have in this cancer world Decision Days are dreaded and full of anxiety about which path to choose. Thankfully, we have an amazing Doctor and Team surrounding us that made the decision before I had to explain my side and use the speech I had been preparing for
