Its breezy up there

Well, yesterday I joined the ranks of the greats.....Yule Brenner, Michael Chicklis, Howie Mandel,......Demi Moore. Check out the pics:

This is just getting started......6 hands at work, i had ALOT of hair.

I tried to convince everybody that this was a good look. Sort of a half comb over.....i didn't get very far.

.........and finally:

Like father like son! I think we look pretty sharp

Tuesday I had two more treatments of chemotherapy. I handled it pretty well and have been able to stay pretty active and healthy. I'm hoping that trend continues. This is the beginning of the last week of the first course of treatment. There is still a long way to go but it is exciting to hit some milestones. Still just looking at it one day at a time. This coming Tuesday I will have another bone marrow biopsy and another spinal tap to analyze the effectiveness of the chemo in the first course. This will be the first MAJOR test to see how things are progressing. I am nervous but hopeful. Hanna and I are off to Hershey right now to see if I need any blood transfusions, so its not a bad trip. We kind of look forward to these trips actually....the nurses and other patients are amazing and we have alot of laughs and I'm excited to show off my new 'do'. Special shout out to Nurse Patti who made me an orange creamcile smoothie the other day, trying to fatten me up. She's a rock star.

There are not enough shout outs to my friend and family either. I could not stay positive without you all. Much love and...

ALL will be well.

  1. Ooooh, I like the bald! You both look quite smashing.

    Also, do your heads get cold in the air conditioning? If so, there are hand-knitted caps coming your way.

  2. I'm loving the new look danny boy! Although I must say the half-comb-over was pretty cool too!

  3. Looking good! Our love to you and your dad. You are still in our prayers (as "Danny the Lion", of course.)
