Promising News

We heard from Rick's oncologist today and it looks like he might be a good candidate for a procedure that shoots radioactive beads into his liver and destroys some of the tumors that still remain. The only doctor who performs this procedure is in Spokane (he just recently moved there from Portland) and he said he could get Rick in to see him this Thursday. We are so excited. This is great news. Now, we have to hope that the insurance will approve this procedure once the doctor sees him and decides he's a great patient. The bad part is, I might not make it back for graduation. I've gotta get my priorities straight. Family First.

I'm feeling better today, but the throat is still sore. I've been gargling with warm salt water. I'm not sure if that really works but my mom always made me do it... I thought warm whiskey and lemon juice was suppose to be good for you too (I'm just not sure what that cures, but I would have to die first because the smell of whiskey makes me gag)

I need to get going because I'm still working on the program for tomorrow night's award banquet. If it wasn't for the last minute...nothing would get done.

Dream Big,
