Several of you have asked about what is happening with Derek and his treatment since the blog isn't updated daily. Here's the latest: Derek is in SLC waiting to begin the first round of chemotherapy. He'll be up there until Friday and then we wait to see what side effects he will experience. We are basically playing the waiting game.
Mom (Jeanne) has declared her own war on the cancer with her main weapon: a Juicer. :) Derek is a great sport to drink her spinach and carrot drinks. Her new motto is taken from the movie Ratatouille, "You know, once you muscle your way past the gag reflex, all kinds of possibilities open up." We are all benefiting from her new approach.
Thank you so much for your love and prayers! We would like to give a special thanks to the Leavitt family for offering their condo for our use during Derek's treatment. It is a great blessing.
