Finish Line at Vancouver Weekend


I'm not sure why this photo is teeny tiny, but maybe you can see the Vancouver walkers crossing the finish line. We are amazed and proud of them.

As for me: It's Day 9, of Cycle 5, I just returned from Winnipeg where I had Day 1 and Day 8 of chemo..... My bloodwork remains good enough, and although i certainly am getting increasingly fatigued, I am doing well.

First week(s) of school......Brian is settling in at Leboldus in Regina..... Craig has been at Engineering Orientation, learning to sign loudly and irritate/offend any non-engineer on campus.... Michelle is very, very busy with her sorority chapter, and all their classes begin Thursday... New beginnings for all.
