6/21/09 Happy Solstice Day !
It has been a really busy week for us. On Monday, I met with the Chemotherapy oncologist and they think that in general things are going really well. The swallowing issues and pain in the throat will be around for a while, but my energy level seems to be getting better. The labs looked good and I won’t need to see the chemo people for another three months!! Tuesday afternoon Peggy and I did two school assembly programs at Morrisville Eaton Central School. The programs went quite well; I still cannot sing very much but that will be coming along soon!! On Thursday we went to Indian Lake to do the Heritage program with our good friend and music colleague, Dan Berggren. It was really fun and after working with the kids during the day we did an evening concert with them at the Indian Lake Theater. The program went great and it was so wonderful to see so many friends who have been pulling for us the last few months. In fact the good folks in Indian Lake came up with the 7:00 Vibe, and you know the rest of the story!
Tomorrow is a really big day. At around 9:30, I’ll have a PET scan to see if there are still any cancer cells left in my body. It’s a bit nerve-wracking, but we are hoping for the best. I would ask a big favor of all of you. If we can have an extra vibe time around 9:30 am on Monday morning that would be wonderful, just put those great positive thoughts out there and I know that things will work out. I will put up a post on Monday night or Tuesday as soon I know the results. If all goes well Peggy and I are going to try get away for a few well deserved days of R & R later this week!! To all of you who have been so supportive with your cards, thoughts, and generosity we send you our sincere thanks and gratitude. You all will never know how much this community has lifted our spirits and empowered us when we needed it the most. I am a firm believer of the power of positive thinking (thanks Pops!), and even more the power of the collective positive thoughts that all of you have been taking part in. Happy Solstice and Happy Fathers Day to all of you, I’ll look for you tomorrow at 9:30 and 7:00.
