Topic: DONE!

I want to shout it from the roof tops, run through Seattle screaming it out loud or do a happy dance all the way home but I know someone would think I was crazy and lock me up. I think after a year of this I am a little crazy though.

We are done. Getting two liters of fluids tonight just to make sure he is well hydrated and then the pump comes off and we are done! No more chemo, no more radiation and no more trips to Seattle for a little while. We don't have to be back until June for his one year follow-up (one year from surgery).

Blood counts were good including Ca 19-9 which has come back down since starting radiation when it popped up. He weights 190# fully dressed with his pump on so I suspect about 185 which is what he was at his lowest after surgery. He kind of looks like a scarecrow right now but that will change.

So darn happy. There are so many people who have helped make this happen including everyone on here for there wonderful support that has been given throughout all this. Thank you everyone for your support. Love you all.

As long as you carry a Seahawks flag, no one in Seattle will look at you twice.

Take a deep breath.  And another.  Don't even think about relaxing, this is way too important.  Take time and enjoy life with each other.  Always look to the future, not the past.

Your great news is so important to us.  Thank you for sharing.
