Zack has been improving daily since my last post! He was approved for and received chemo on Friday and Saturday, March 28th and 29th. He experienced some nausea but it didn't last...In addition to his doctors at OHSU Doernbecher, Zack is now being treated by Dr. Ken Weizer, a Providence Hospital-based naturopath who is focusing on Zack's digestive system with truly remarkable results. He is gaining weight, his cheeks are rosier, he has more energy, and he feels more like his normal self every day...Our sincere gratitude to Jan and Usha for recommending Dr. Weizer...Zack is also receiving massage therapy from Meigra Simon, a wonderful lady who introduced us to a healing technique called Bowenwork...this very gentle massage is used to treat the after effects of chemotherapy (among other things). Zack is a big fan. We are very grateful to Meigra...and to Heidi for introducing us to her.
Spring break included a trip to the Bay Area where Zack nearly ate his weight in tofu, much to his delight...During our stay, he went to Frontierland Park with Tina, Maggie & Stella, enjoyed a visit from Kate & Gary and an Easter visit from Olivia, Laura & Carlos, went to Millbrae Pancake House with Bob, Jana took him to the movies with Carter, he walked on the beach with Courtney & Mike and Mocha & Maya, saw Carol, Tony, Frank Navin and Jill, and spent Easter with our relatives. He is looking forward to seeing more Bay Area buddies when he visits again this summer...
A very big "thank you" to the families who brought us meals...We love you!
