Most people like to end their summers with a stay at a nice beach resort. This year, I broke tradition and opted for a stay at a luxurious hospital instead. As much fun as it was to be constantly poked, prodded and awakened at all hours of the night, I'm happy to report that my hospital vacation ended last night after a 3-week visit.
As nice as it is to be home with my family and sleeping in my own bed, I still have a lot of medical "fun" ahead of me. I'll continue to spend a lot of time at the hospital getting my blood tested, getting chemotherapy and continuing to beat back the cancer.
I'll continue to use the blog to keep folks up to speed on my progress. Thanks again to all those who stopped by the hospital, phoned, texted, sent cards, said prayers, delivered meals and otherwise helped me and my family. While in the hospital, I had a lot of contemplation time and one thing that became clear is that it's much easier to attack a problem when you know there is a great support system behind you and your family. We are truly blessed to have such great family and friends.
