Since my last post, Zack has received more chemo and more massage from Meigra...He continues to respond well to treatment and his weight continues to slowly increase. He is nearly a month into the phase of treatment referred to as "Interim Maintenance I" which includes chemo administered via IV, shots and spinal taps, the latter of which is next scheduled for Monday, April 28th.
On Friday, April 11th, Ms. Blaser visited Zack with gifts: a quilt made by his class with the help of Maeve's mom, Rebecca Rothery, and grandmother, Debbie Rothery. It's a very beautiful and unique gift, each square designed by a classmate plus a square that features a poem from Ms. Blaser and a square signed by Cedarwood faculty. Zack is so grateful.
Ms. Blaser also brought a mobile made of 1,000 cranes, each crane created by a student, teacher or family member from Cedarwood. The bright and beautiful mobile is hanging in Zack's room. Thank you to everyone who created it.
Zack returned to the Bay Area on Friday, April 11th for a quick weekend trip to see Frank Ferrante in "An Evening with Groucho" for the 5th time...and it just keeps getting better! Zack's grandparents, Aunt Cristina, Uncle Miguel, Aunt Aleta and cousins Jasmine and Michael also went to the show...While in the Bay Area, Zack spent an afternoon with his buddies Jarrett and Kyle and visited Luanne, Mike and Abbe Lane.
Our trusty old Saab sang its swan song recently and we owe a very big "thank you" to Travis at Atomic Auto for finding us a car...we are so grateful.
