My oncologist called last week to say that although my B-12 numbers are climbing in the right direction, they are not what they should be (at only about half the normal level) and he wants me to be re-tested in 5 weeks. I am continuing the daily Rx strength B-12 supplements. I'm hoping we can get to full levels in that time and start to feel more energetic again. August has me scheduled for a pelvic ultrasound (pain on right continues - almost a year now), a mammogram and a dermatology follow up. Are we having fun yet?
Last weekend we went up to New York City to take Keith and Kelli to Broadway show, starring our long time family friend and 2011 Tony Award winner, Norbert Butz, in Catch Me If You Can. (Click on the photo, then the little arrows to the right and scroll through the rest of the photos.) What a thrill! We surprised the kids by arranging to meet Norb backstage after the show. He was so gracious to take the time to talk to Kelli about her musical interests, and she was star struck, also meeting the other lead, Aaron Tviet when she asked him to take our picture (not realizing it was HIM!)
Monday morning found us back at Walter Reed meeting with the rehab doctors for Tim's condition. He continues to battle through the paralysis (left side) and numbness, nerve pain and limited mobility on right side. He will be seeking a 2nd opinion from a renown spinal nerve doctor at University of Virginia in the coming weeks.
Fortunately we have the boys home from college for another couple of weeks to do things around the yard and house. After August 23rd we will officially be empty nesters! We plan to try squeezing in a family beach trip in a couple of weeks and enjoy some rest on the sands in Maryland's shores. "Til then! ~ Koryn
