It is my plan to update this page with news of Zack and his progress during chemotherapy. Thank you to all of you who've used a myriad of different ways to send us your love and support. We love you, too. And we welcome you to add comments, questions, etc.
Zack is doing very well and is happy to know that beginning March 11, he will be switching from weekly chemo treatments to a 10-day schedule.
Below is a brief break-down of the last two months...though much of it is a blur to me.
...was a bit of a tough month, during which he experienced a lot of nausea and very little appetite. The Make-A-Wish Foundation granted him a wish: a trip to Miami. He initially wished for a trip to Thailand, but was happy to choose Miami as an alternative. Marianne and Tyler, Zack's Make-A-Wish team, are helping him plan the trip to include visits to the Keys, the Everglades, and more...Toward the end of the month, we spent a few days visiting the coast of Oregon where we watched the lunar eclipse from our hotel room and went to "An Evening with Groucho," a show we've now seen 3 times and counting...Zack wasn't able to go to school during February but he didn't miss any of his classmates' basketball games. Go 6Up!...Our February visitors included Zack's Grandma and Mary Armstrong, Zack's Aunt Cristina, Maria's cousin Karen and her boyfriend Jason, Brian Armstrong and teachers Donna Blaser and Heather Pearl. Many Cedarwood families brought us delicious, wholesome meals...And Zack used much of his downtime to become a "Hogan's Heroes" aficionado.
..Zack turned 12 and his grandparents visited for his birthday...AreYouGame.com held the very successful "Zack Day" fundraiser and we are very, very grateful to them and to everyone who participated...Courtney and Mike visited and we saw Michele for the first time in a couple of years.
